Petition: women condemned to death in Sudan without defence lawyers…

I’m not a great fan of petitions. They often give rise to unrealistic expectations of what Brian Appleyard describes as hyper democracy. But if this one (currently has just 914 names) helps to highlight the plight of two ethnic African women, Amouna Abdallah Daldoum and Sadia Idries Fadul, condemned to be stoned to death after a trial conducted in Arabic (an language neither of them speaks) and without defence lawyers, it may be worth taking your time to read and sign it. Hat Tip Mark Weston.
