ICC Note:

700 students at a secondary school in Plymouth, Devon, United Kingdom have joined more than a million others around the world in signing their names for Meriam’s immediate release. Delivering their petition to a Sudanese Embassy in the U.K., the students voiced their deep dismay over Meriam’s being sentenced to 100 lashes and death for her Christian faith. On June 13, ICC submitted its petition of more than 10,000 signatures to the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, D.C. Embassy staff refused to accept it. ICC has since sent them a digital copy, which can be viewed here. Learn everything you need to know about Meriam’s case, and everything ICC is doing to see her and her children released here.

06/18/2014 United Kingdom (Plymouth Herald) – Pupils and teachers at a city secondary school have presented a petition to the Sudanese embassy protesting against a death sentence imposed on a mother who refused to renounce her Christian faith.

Meriam Ibrahim was convicted by a court in Khartoum on charges of apostasy and adultery and sentenced to death and 100 lashes.

She gave birth last month while shackled to the floor in a Khartoum prison where she is being held with her newborn daughter and toddler son.

Students at Tor Bridge High recently formed an Amnesty International group, campaigning on issues such as women’s rights and the death penalty, and they collected about 700 signatures on a petition against the sentence imposed on 27-year-old Ibrahim.
