Saudi Arabia has just offered to host a “Virtual” G20 summit, bringing the world’s leaders together to address the coronavirus pandemic. While the world absolutely needs much better international coordination in response to this catastrophic pandemic, Saudi Arabia’s ruling family is one of the last governments we should want convening a conversation on solving any humanitarian crisis, let alone a crisis of this magnitude.

About Freedom Forward

Freedom Forward works to end U.S. alliances with nondemocratic governments, including dictators, kings, and apartheid systems. U.S. foreign policy should be aligned with the value of global freedom. We work to make it happen.

 

For too long, U.S. foreign policy has directly contradicted U.S. government rhetoric. While U.S. officials talk about freedom, the U.S. government maintains alliances with  governments that brutalize critics and silence dissent at home. We envision a world in which U.S. foreign policy is fully aligned with the hopes and aspirations of people who desire freedom.

 

We combine strategic research, advocacy, and solidarity-based activism to achieve changes in U.S. foreign policy and expanded freedom in societies that struggle under repressive U.S.-backed governments. We build direct civil society pressure on repressive governments that are backed by the U.S., as well as the private entities that enable such repression or profit silently while others suffer.

 

In too many places, U.S. foreign policy provides military and diplomatic support to governments that crush hope. U.S. citizens and taxpayers deserve better. When people around the world seek freedom from dictatorship and occupation, our own government should not be investing in the wrong side.
