Saudis Stage Protest Rallies to Show Solidarity with Al-Mousawarah Village Residents

A large number of people in Eastern Saudi Arabia staged protest rallies and set up tents in certain districts of Awamiyah region to voice support for residents of al-Mousawarah village, the birthplace of late cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr. Tens of Qatif residents staged rallies to protest at the Saudi government's threats to destroy the houses of resident of al-Mousawarah village and expel them. After a-weeklong siege, the Saudi officials have announced their decision to destroy the village. Saudi authorities have cut the water and power supplies for days.

Earlier this month, people in Saudi Arabia’s Shiite-populated Qatif region poured into streets to mark the first anniversary of the execution of prominent cleric Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr by the Saudi regime. The rally was held in al-Awamiyah village in Eastern Province, and the protesters carried photos of Sheik Nimr and placards in condemnation of the Saudi regime, chanting the slogan “Sheikh Nimr is always alive”. They also condemned the kingdom for executing the cleric on fabricated charges.

Nimr’s hometown, Awamiyah has been the scene of frequent security incidents since 2011.

On January 2, 2016, Saudi Arabia executed 47 prisoners, including Sheikh Nimr. The senior cleric was detained in July 2012 on charges of delivering anti-regime speeches and defending political prisoners.

His arrest sparked widespread protests in the Arab country, leaving several people dead.
