Saudi Scandals

Widespread calls to protest on Arafa day, and Saudis taint the image of the king

Public calls for mass participation in the Arafa Day protest are mounting, rejecting the injustice of the Saudi regime and in support for prisoners of conscience.

Saudis defaced the murals of King Salman and his son, Crown Prince Muhammad, before protests scheduled for Monday (Arafah Day).

Saudi opposition activist Ali Al-Ahmad tweeted: “Less than 48 hours before the start of protests across the country, activists began targeting murals of the leaders of #SaudiKingSalman and #MBS.”

Posted by Dr Muhammad Al-Dosari showed a video of several Saudi army soldiers in the southern border trampling and burning pictشures of King Salman and his crown prince.

One of the protests’ goals is to lift the Saudi injustice on citizens and release all political detainees in the prisons of the House of Saud.

In the protest scheduled for the day of Arafa, they demand an end to the plans of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman aimed at “tampering with religion and putting an end to plans to destroy the identity of society”, employing graduates and eradicating poverty in the oil kingdom.

The goals also include stopping the security prosecutions and brutal repression of citizens and opponents and enabling the Bidoon to have their right to citizenship.

They aim to pressure the Saudi regime to improve the citizens’ living standards, abolish government taxes and restore previous services to citizens.

Protesters urged citizens to print flyers and write on the wall as part of the mobilization for the day of protest.

They suggested throwing balloons in neighbourhood streets and public places, burning tires and inventing new methods using modern technologies to protest.

They called for an economic boycott of state facilities by reducing fuel and electricity consumption and a boycott of soft drinks and canned goods.

As well as food and consumer products that can be dispensed with, and refrain from carrying out banking operations and dealing in cash.

Saudi opposition activists interacted on Twitter with the statement and video clips calling for protests under the hashtag “Bring down the Saudi regime,” stressing the necessity of the mobilization to demonstrate on the Day of Arafa.

From 2011 to 2013, the Saudi people participated in the waves of the Arab Spring. The Saudi protests took the same manifestations as the Arab Spring revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt, in their beginnings in Samtah, Jeddah and Jazan, then the protests of Saudi Shiites in Qatif.

The regime faced the protests with force, killed some activists and opponents, and massive waves of arrests on charges of terrorism and dissenting from the ruler.
