24 JUNE 2016: FAST DEFYING PROTEST DURING RAMADAN

On 24 June, from 12:00, we will be organising an “eat-in” at the Saudi, Iranian, Bangladeshi, Pakistani… embassies in London in solidarity with those defying fasting rules during Ramadan. This is hugely important given that there are many people across the globe who are arrested, beaten and fined for eating during the month; many others are pressured into fasting, including in Europe. Join us at the ‘eat-in’ if you can.

Alternately, you can upload photos of yourself eating during fasting times or holding signs with messages of solidarity using hashtag: #IWillNotFast #لن_اصوم #روزه خوارى #Ramadan until the end of Ramadan. Happy fast-defiance!

To participate, join Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/1756845957937702/
