Adam Coogle, researcher for Human Rights Watch, interviews Saudi human rights activists working to effect change through social media. Video: HumanRightsWatch.

Activists in Saudi Arabia face a repressive and intolerant government as they advocate popular political participation, judicial reform, and an end to discrimination against women and minorities. Authorities have responded by arresting, prosecuting, and attempting to silence rights defenders and to quash their calls for change.
