Renew Europe: Human rights in Equatorial Guinea

June 07, 2023 | 04:00PM-07:00PM
European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium

After more than two decades, the European Parliament passed a resolution on Equatorial Guinea, and it did so by an overwhelming majority (more than 95% of votes in favour). Our group was behind the initiative and led the successful negotiations. This seminar intends to follow up on the text, which, inter alia, condemns the country’s barbaric repression of human rights defenders and its lack of democratic space for political opponents and government critics and demands an end to all political persecution and repression. The text also calls for sanctions and a strengthening of the protection for EU citizens and those residents in the EU who also hold Equatoguinean citizenship.

Through this seminar, along pro-democracy opponents from and experts in Equatorial Guinea, our group will consolidate its lead on the discussions on the steps post-Resolution.
