“Protesters demand ‘Justice for Jamal’ outside MBS charity event,” Al Jazeera, September 23, 2019.
“Controversy dogged Monday’s event from the outset. More than 7,000 people signed an online petition, calling for the event to be cancelled.
‘Step by step, we are going to shut down the Saudi dictatorship’s propaganda machine in the US,’ said Sunjeev Bery, director of the anti-autocrat campaign group Freedom Forward, who organised the petition.
‘No public institution or private business should be helping the Saudi dictatorship in any way with its efforts to wash away its crimes in Yemen, its imprisonment of activists, and its murder of Jamal Khashoggi,’ he told Al Jazeera.”
