Activista angolano Raúl Mandela recebe asilo político no Brasil

Raúl Mandela is a member of the Conselho Nacional dos Activistas de Angola (National Council of Angolan Activists). He is a well-known activist who has organised several demonstrations against human rights abuses in Angola. He has also been one of the strongest voices in defence of freedom of speech and the right to conduct public demonstrations in Angola.


Human rights defenders in Angola have been victims of arrests, judicial harassment, physical attacks, threats and defamation campaigns. Freedoms of peaceful assembly and expression are limited. Human rights defenders working on civil and political rights and journalists criticizing the government are especially at risk.
