ALDA calls upon the European institution to support democracy in Ukraine and Azerbaijan



The Association of Local Democracy Agencies has been working for many years to support the democratic and European path of Ukraine.

We are extremely worried by the authoritarian new laws passed on 16th January, and we call upon the European Institutions and the Council of Europe to immediately take position and insist on an end to all violence, and to support the start of a dialogue involving also the whole civil society.

ALDA has also been actively involved in furthering the democratic and European path undertaken by Azerbaijan. We are extremely concerned by the restrictive amendments to the NGO Act passed by the Azeri Parliament on 17th December 2013 to control the activities of NGOs.
 
We join the 60 national NGOs' appeal to the Head of State not to sign those amendments. We therefore call  upon the European Institutions and the Council of Europe to immediately and clearly oppose the above-mentioned amendments to the NGO Act.
