Here another, a new petition, linked on our blogs with Saudi woman arrested for simply driving a car is set free. – Received by e-mail, From: Weldon Kennedy, Change.org, Date: 22/07/2011.
This week, a group of Saudi women are once again defying the driving ban – this time to drive to Saudi Subaru and hand-deliver their Change.org petition asking the company to stop selling cars in a country where women are forbidden to drive. The effort will expose these brave women to tremendous personal risk: Since Saudi women launched their right-to-drive campaign on June 17, threats against women activists – in mosques, on the street, and in the media – have been growing at a scary pace. But it’s a cause they believe in.
More than 50,000 people around the world have already signed the petition to reinforce Saudi women’s resolve and courage – and remind Saudi Arabia and Subaru that the world is watching. Add your name to Saudi Women for Driving’s remarkable Subaru petition in time for their petition delivery.
