United Nations
Following the execution - by beheading - in one day of 47 prisoners by the Saudi regime, it is requested that they are removed from this council and dealt with in the strongest possible terms. One of those beheaded was done so for speaking out against the regime. Dissent should be a human right.

When others in the world are being bombed for their brutality, the Saudi's are lavished by world leaders due to their power in the Middle East and their possession of the planet destroying oil beneath their feet.

They represent a dangerous extremist world view and appear to act with impunity when it comes to human rights and so need to be removed from the UN Human Rights Council and brought before it.

Through this act of international solidarity we may be able to bring into order, a rogue state profiting from the choking of the planet.

Thank you, the undersigned.
