Nidal Al Taghyeer

Radhwan Al-Haimi is Director of Nidal Al Taghyeer (Struggle of Change), an organisation working to protect human rights and freedoms, and a member of the Yemen Organisation for Defending Rights and Democratic Freedoms.

Human rights defenders (HRDs) in Yemen have been subjected to harassment, arbitrary arrest, threats of fabricated prosecutions, physical attacks and surveillance as well as restrictions to their right to freedom of expression, association and assembly. They were heavily affected by the reaction to the mass protests that broke out during the early months of 2011 as well as by the ongoing conflict.
