What? Why is Mariah Carey planning a January 31, 2019 concert in Saudi Arabia? Doesn’t she know Saudi Arabia is one of the most repressive and murderous regimes on the planet? Doesn’t she know that women fighting for their rights are tortured in Saudi prisons? Doesn’t she know that Saudi Arabia is bombing school children in Yemen?
Sign our petition telling Mariah Carey and the others planning to perform at the Saudi international golf tournament in King Abdullah Economic City–Dutch DJ Tiesto, Yemeni-Emirati singer Balqees Fathi and Jamaican rapper Sean Paul--to cancel their performances and call for the an end to the brutal Saudi war on Yemen and imprisonment of Saudi women activists.
Dear Mariah Carey, DJ Tiesto, and Sean Paul, and Balqees Fathi,
Since 2015 Saudi Arabia has been waging a war on Yemen so brutal that the country is now experiencing the worst humanitarian crisis on earth. Already, as many as 85,000 children under the age of five have died of hunger. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has not been held accountable for barbaric murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, and women activists are being imprisoned and tortured for speaking out for their rights.
