Subject: Demand End to Juvenile Executions

Dear [Your Congressman/Senator Inserted Here]

Imagine being arrested at 16 and sentenced to die by beheading and crucifixion. Your crime: a peaceful protest asking for equal rights. This is the fate that awaits Ali Mohammed al-Nimr and two others after being arrested for protesting for democratic reforms in Saudi Arabia. All three were juveniles at the time of the arrest. Amnesty International, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, and talk show host Bill Maher have all called for clemency for these innocent boys. So far, Saudi Arabia says it plans to go forward with the execution.

Saudi Arabia has no reason to stop. Allies like the US continue to support its regime and sell it billions of dollars in weapons without holding them responsible for human rights. We are calling on the US to take a stand against barbaric acts like juvenile executions and demand that Ali Mohammed al-Nimr, Dawood Al Marhoon, and Abdullah Al Zaher be pardoned and released.

Please introduce a resolution condemning this sentence, and urging a ban of weapon sales until Saudi Arabia respects the rights of children. Here is the sample language: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1wVPCokkd9TyooPdIzUdRaQHa9ouEh08JUbNYIgoWdzc/edit
