JOINT MEDIA INVITE: Civil Society Meets 5 December, Fiji, for Workshop on the Shrinking Space for the Feminist Movement

Suva, Fiji — Civil society organisations globally are uniting in the Pacific on Tuesday 5 December to discuss the critical need to raise women’s voices and protect the shrinking space for the global feminist movement during 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.

 

Civil society comes together around “Our Planet. Our Struggles. Our Future”

Suva, Fiji. 27 November 2017: Across the globe, we are seeing governments increasingly attacking human rights NGOs. Environmental defenders are being murdered in record numbers. An unprecedented rise of populist leaders is eroding fundamental freedoms.
