Halt Woman's Execution for 'Witchcraft'

To Those Who Share Our Deep Concern:
Please join us in calling for the immediate pardon and release of FAWZA FALIH [Falwah Faliz], a Saudi Arabian woman who has been sentenced to death by beheading for the alleged crime of "witchcraft". As Human Rights Watch has declared, the conviction of Fawza Falih is a travesty of justice.

A letter to His Royal Highness KING ABDULLAH has been drafted and signed by clergy and members of various faith traditions. The letter may be read online where you may also sign it. Please do so as soon as possible at: Fawza Falih Petition Online

Further information on the case is available at:
Please help to circulate this request for support as widely as possible -- time is of the essence.
I'm sorry to have to ask this, but PLEASE if you are Pagan or Wiccan, we would appreciate it if you do not make reference to that because, sadly, this will only make Fawza Falih's situation worse - it is the reason, after all, that she is sentenced to beheading. And when you post to e-lists or boards, please add that request.

Please join us in signing online, and help distribute this letter to others.
Thank you for your help!
