Write to The Queen

// 17 November 2007

This is disgusting:

Last week King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia was being treated to lavish receptions with the Queen and assorted British dignitaries. This week, one of his courts has punished a women with 200 lashes and six months in jail for BEING gang-raped. They apparently increased the sentence from 60 lashes to punish her for attempting to draw attention to the case internationally, and have withdrawn her lawyer’s right to practice law after he appealed on her behalf. Via Cruella-blog.

I know it may seem like a pointless thing to do, considering it is highly unlikely that the Queen herself reads the mail she receives, but I’m going to write to her anyway, just something short and to the point, to express my disappointment. Maybe if enough of us do so we’ll get a reply, which would be interesting and could potentially be used to generate greater public awareness of violence against women across the globe. Worth a try!

Write to:

Her Majesty The Queen

Buckingham Palace

London SW1A 1AA

I’ll let you know if I get a response.

Have Your say
