Anonymous and Operation Nimr “#OpNimr” are calling on the International Olympic Committee to ban Saudi Arabia from the upcoming Summer Olympics in Rio.
On January 2, 2016 Saudi Arabia executed and crucified 47 people, several of whom were children at the time of their arrests. Prominent, peaceful Shia cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr and Arab Spring activists Ali Saeed Al Rebh, Mohamed Al Sheuikh, and Mohammed Al Suwamil were among the executed.
Arab Spring activists Ali Mohammed Baqir Al Nimr, Ali Saeed Al Rebh, Abdullah Al Zaher, Dawoud Al Marhoon, Mohamed Al Sheuikh, and Mohammed Al Suwamil were teenagers at the time of their arrests.
In 2012 an online movement was started to ban Saudi Arabia from participating at the London Summer Olympics because of the country’s suppression of women’s rights. Saudi Arabia lifted their ban and allowed two female athletes to compete for the first time.
We feel the IOC banning Saudi Arabia from this year’s Olympics for their human rights atrocities will secure the freedom of the three remaining Arab Spring activists. We hope added attention on Saudi Arabia’s human rights abuses will help spark another online movement to ban Saudi Arabia from the Olympics.
All media requests about the Olympic ban should be forwarded to Gulf commentator/analyst & investigative journalist Ali AlAhmed @AliAlAhmed_en
We stand in solidarity with Arab Spring activists Ali Mohammed Baqir Al Nimr, Abdullah Al Zaher, and Dawoud Al Marhoon, hoping for their freedom and an end to their incarceration.
