Boycott United Arab Emirates!

While every country is entitled to their own laws, they are also responsible to ensure that such laws are just. This is not the case in the United Arab Emirates. There, a woman can be forced to have sex - it's called rape in more advanced countries - and then sent to prison because she did.

Please acquaint yourself with the case of Alicia Gali. She is the victim of rape but due to the justice system in that county she is the one who was sent to prison for eight months because "it is illegal in the UAE to have sex outside marriage".

This situation is disgusting - not because she is an Australian who have been assaulted and violated which is bad enough, but because the practice of rape in that country evidently has no legal precedent.

Until changes are made to protect the rights of women it should be every Australian's duty to boycott the United Arab Emirates, Starwood Hotels and any other business associated with this criminal justice system.

Wonko will not suffer any connection with UAE until justice is done. That is the opinion of Wonko the Sane.
