West News Wire: The “Freedom First” campaign displayed a huge photo on the Saudi embassy in Washington of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.
The “Freedom First” campaign said on its Twitter account: “We displayed Jamal’s photo on the Saudi Embassy in Washington as a reminder that Jamal’s legacy will last forever. Help us seek justice for Jamal.”
Freedom First defines itself as a “campaign in partnership with the Freedom Initiative and Amnesty International to educate leaders from across the entertainment industry about human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and the effects of celebrity-based reputation-washing campaigns.”
The “Freedom First” campaign participated in the activities commemorating the third anniversary of Khashoggi’s murder, in Washington, DC, with the Turkish researcher Hatice Cengiz and a number of activists, who organized a protest in front of the Saudi embassy and another in front of Congress.
The “Freedom First” campaign also published a paid advertisement on the last page of the Washington Post, which included his picture and a question about the location of his body.
