Saudi Arabia beheads hundreds of convicts

"Executions are not the only serious human rights concern," says Sevag Kechichian, Saudi researcher for Amnesty International.

"There's been a vicious and systematic crackdown on human rights activists and on peaceful dissent in general - including bloggers and online activists.

If you are on the UN Human Rights Council, then you are obliged to uphold the highest standards in promoting and protecting human rights.

Saudi Arabia, controversially, became a member of the UN Human Rights Council in 2013, for a three-year term."

Read the story on BBC News .... then send an email to the UN Human Rights Council and ask them to kick Saudi Arabia off the Council for their human rights violations.
