Along with two other HRC-Net members from Africa, the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) and African Democracy Forum (ADF), EHAHRDP initiated a campaign aimed at preventing Egypt from being selected as the forthcoming HRC president. The letter, which was signed onto by 32 NGOs from 20 African countries, and was sent out to African Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFAs) as well as to other key states, generated significant discussion and also a certain amount of unease amongst the rather negative Egyptian mission in Geneva who later pulled out of the nomination process. Ambassador Martin Ihoeghian Uhomoibhi of Nigeria was finally selected as the 2008-2009 session President.

Human Rights Defender of the month: Veronica Almedom

Veronica Almedom is a poster child of successful immigration. A duo Eritrean and Swiss citizen, she was born in Italy, and grew up in Switzerland where she permanently resides. Her parents are some of the earliest victims of Eritrea’s cycles of violence. When Eritrea’s war of independence peaked in the early 1980s, they escaped the country as unaccompanied minors, wandering through Sudan, Saudi Arabia, before making the hazard journey across the Mediterranean into Europe. There, they crossed first to Italy, and finally, to Switzerland, where they settled first as refugees, and later, as permanent residents.
