Guinea: Preventing the excessive use of force and respecting freedom of peaceful assembly in the run-up to the 2015 elections and beyond – A Call to Action

This organization also calls upon all the presidential candidates to make a commitment that if elected they will carry out the necessary legal and institutional reforms to help Guinea end the cycle of impunity for unlawful state violence.
