Ethiopian-Americans and friends of Ethiopia are uniting together to hold a protest outside the Saudi Arabia Embassy. The purpose of the Protest is to demand the release of Ethiopians who are unjustly detained by the Saudi Arabia Government. Thirty Five (35) Ethiopians, 6 men and 29 women, remain in jail under inhumane conditions since December 15th 2012.
The protesters condemn the unjust incarceration of these Ethiopian Christians while exercising their religious rights (praying) in their own homes and call on the Government of Saudi Arabia to respect their rights and to release them immediately.
The Protest will take place in front of the Saudi Arabia Embassy in Washington DC on Tuesday Feb 28, 2012 starting from 10AM.
The Protest is organized by collaboration of Ethiopian human right activists living in Washington DC area.
