No death penalty for resisting rape!
On 7th December 2014 Jennifer Dalquez, a Filipina migrant domestic worker in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), fought back when her employer attempted to rape her at knifepoint. 
Five days later, Jennifer was arrested on 12 December 2014. She was subsequently given the death sentence by a UAE court for killing her employer. 
According to the Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs which is representing Jennifer Dalquez, while her employer was attempting to rape her at knifepoint, she managed to turn the knife on him. Jennifer’s arms had signs of abuse, including bruises and cigarette burns.
n the UAE most of the manual and blue collar work is done by migrant workers. There are about 146 000 female migrant domestic workers, many of whom are from the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Ethiopia.
We Demand:
Immediate release and reprieve of Jennifer Dalquez
End the violence and rape of Domestic workers
Protection not Execution of Domestic workers fighting sexual violence
Equal Workers Rights for Domestic workers - No to Slave labour
Philippines government act now and protect your citizen, Jennifer Dalquez
This protest is part of an international campaign demanding justice for Jennifer Dalquez and an immediate reprieve from the death penalty.
No death penalty for resisting rape!
PROTEST outside the United Arab Emirates Embassy!
