Act Now to help stop Witchcraft Beheading

Wiccans, Druids, and other Pagans are part of an international
coalition of religious leaders and others who have signed a letter
to King Abdullah bin Abd al-'Aziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia pleading
for the release of a Saudi Arabian woman, Fawza Falih, who has been
condemned to death for "witchcraft." She was accused
for "bewitching" a man and making him "impotent." She was
imprisoned and beaten, her confession was coerced,
the limited appeals process is now exhausted, and she is awaiting
execution, a public beheading.

The coalition seeking her pardon and release also includes Muslims,
Jews, Christians, Hindus, Native Americans, Buddhists, and those of
other faith traditions. The letter will be delivered soon to the
Saudi ambassadors tothe United Nations and the United States.

More than 9900 people have already signed the petition -- the goal is
to get over 10,000 by the morning of Saturday, March 8 --
International Women's Day.
