Swaziland continues to enforce harsh limitations on freedoms of expression and assembly, with frequent arrests, detention, and in several cases, torture of civic and political activists for trying to exercise their basic human rights.
ACTSA has been campaigning for the release of four such activists who were been detained for over a year: Mario Masuku, Maxwell Dlamini, Thulani Maseko and Bheki Makhubu. Thankfully, the four have now been released. All served more than 12 months in jail and Maxwell and Mario remain on bail. However, the campaign for freedom of expression, organisation and for human rights and democracy continues.
ACTSA is campaigning to get the UK and the Commonwealth to take a stronger stance on human rights abuses in Swaziland so that nobody else is treated like this. We need your support to do this.
Please donate £30, or as much as you can today, and help us bring justice to Swaziland.
