On the International Day of Non-Violence, Saudi state violence threatens societal peace
Coinciding with the International Day of Non-Violence, which the world celebrates annually on the 2nd of October; we recall the policy of the Saudi regime in confronting peaceful reform movements in the Kingdom, with repression and revenge.
While the international community is celebrating such occasions to call for justice and peace, the Saudi regime violates the standards of international law, and insists on suppressing free voices calling for reform and changes in economical, political and other areas.
On the other hand, Saudi society is keen to adhere to its peacefulness in rejecting the regime’s brutal and violent policy of repression, as the Saudi people correspond to the free and peaceful voices calling for human rights and freedoms and demanding the release of prisoners of conscience.
It is noteworthy that the world celebrates the International Day of Non-Violence on October 2 of each year, in accordance with General Assembly resolution 61/271 of June 15, 2007, which stipulated the commemoration of that anniversary as an occasion to “disseminate the message of non-violence, including through education and public awareness.”
