started this petition to
President of Sudan , Omar Al-Bashir

A month ago, Meriam Ibrahim was looking forward to the birth of her new baby with her husband Daniel. Last week, as she delivered little Maya, her legs were in shackles in a Sudanese jail, and she was awaiting execution. Her only ‘crime’ was to be a Christian whose father was Muslim - but if enough of us act, we can give her the precious chance to watch Maya grow up.

Meriam’s death sentence for apostasy has sent shockwaves around the world. A Sudanese government official has suggested that Meriam could be released, but others say her fate will rest with appeal judges. Only a truly global outcry will cut through the confusion and persuade the Sudanese government overturn this brutal ruling.

As the leader of a Sudanese NGO in Khartoum, I have contacts in the top levels of government, and if enough us sign this petition, I will deliver it to President Omar Bashir in person. But first let's make it massive, so the President feels the world’s outrage and uses his power to release Meriam immediately.
