An information meeting was held on Friday afternoon which saw the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and the Djibouti League for Human Rights (LDDH) call upon the Djibouti authorities to ensure that the use of State power is not disproportional.
In addition to this, recent online articles show that the media are taking notice of the situation. Pieces from All Africa and FIDH are two examples of coverage which have appeared over the last few days. The interest of international media and prominent think tanks, as well as the continued concern from both the FIDH and LDDH, are putting the concerns of Djibouti increasingly on the international agenda.
Both the USN and FOD continue to push forward in their mission to raise awareness and generate change.
Mr Abdourahman Boreh said:
“It is good to see that the situation in Djibouti is increasingly being recognised internationally. I want to see more of this; more attention in the media and more people standing up and inciting action.”
