Mauritania: "A sword hanging over our heads" : The repression of activists speaking out against discrimination and slavery in Mauritania
This report seeks to analyze patterns of repression used against human rights defenders in Mauritania, particularly those who expose and combat slavery and discrimination, since the last presidential elections in 2014. There has been an increasing number of bans on peaceful protests and associations, arbitrary arrests, torture and other ill-treatment and persecution of human rights defenders, as well as mushrooming of repressive legislations which further undermine human rights work.
