FONDATION RAIF BADAWI FOUNDATION

Motivated by the lack of media coverage worldwide, Olivier Ventura, Art Director at Mosaic Montreal, and Christian O’Brien, copywriter at TAM-TAM\TBWA, teamed up to create a shocking yet powerful image to remind people that Raif Badawi—the Saudi Arabian blogger sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1000 lashes—still languishes in prison simply for expressing his thoughts.

In a raw and impactful way, the image decry Raif’s terrible imprisonment, making sure no one can be unaffected by the injustice.
“Every single initiative is important”, said Raif Badawi’s wife Ensaf Haidar. “And this one reminds us what Raif has been through so that we never forget. 4 years ago, my husband has been unjustly imprisoned for expressing his views on freedom of expression, freedom of conscience and freedom of the press. He is a prisoner of conscience, not a criminal”.

The pro bono project has been offered to Raif Badawi Foundation for Freedom, co-founded by Ensaf Haidar and Evelyne Abitbol, and will be used to raise awareness and defend freedom of expression around the world.

In 2015, Raif Badawi courage and determination has been rewarded by both the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought and the PEN Pinter prize.
