HRF calls on Nelly to drop upcoming men-only concert sponsored by the repressive Saudi regime.

Nov 21, 2017

On December 14, 2017, Nelly is scheduled to take part in a men-only concert sponsored by the Saudi dictatorship’s General Authority for Entertainment.

HRF calls on Nelly to cancel his concert in Saudi Arabia, and to instead call on King Salman to free the brave human rights lawyer Waleed Abulkhair and liberal blogger Raif Badawi.

HRF recently was engaged in an advocacy campaign on behalf of Waleed Abulkhair.

Learn more about Waleed Abulkhair in an in-depth legal report and in this Washington Post op-ed by HRF.
