Burundi: Locked down: A shrinking of political space
Political space in Burundi is shrinking. In the build-up to the 2015 presidential, legislative and communal elections, Amnesty International has documented an increase in violations of individuals’ rights to freedom of association and peaceful assembly. Amnesty International calls on the Government of Burundi to take all measures to ensure that every Burundian is able to exercise his or her rights to freedom of expression, association, and peaceful assembly. Opposition group leaders should also make all efforts to ensure their members do not engage in any human rights abuses in the run up to the elections.
