The Kingdom Boils

Protesters in Saudi Arabia are becoming bolder, writes Steven Miller in the National Interest.

On September 10, dozens of prisoners’ relatives descended upon the public prosecutor’s office in Riyadh, where they staged a two-day sit-in until the prosecutor agreed to meet with them on the spot. Only days later, for the first time ever, banners sprang up throughout the capital that read “Al-Ha’ir Political Prisoners in Danger,” “Stop Torture . . . Inside Prisons” and “Families of Prisoners [demand] . . . Release Our Relatives.”
