Freedom of Association and Assembly

Attentive stakeholders during awareness drive.

Freedom of Association and Assembly are constitutionally guaranteed rights under Chapter IV: on Human Rights and Freedoms. Article 39 of the Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda provides the Right to freedom of association by stating that  'The right to freedom of association is guaranteed and does not require prior authorisation.  This same legislation under Article 40 Provides for the Right to freedom of assembly. It is stated that  'The right to freedom of peaceful and unarmed assembly is guaranteed. ' The same rights are also enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights 

In recent past occurrences of the violation of these rights and freedoms have been rampant, directly aimed at members and convening’s belonging to LGBTI/Q organizations.

Human Rights First Rwanda Association has undertaken awareness drives and providing legal support to aggrieved members of the community on these fundamental principles and their application towards the respect of sexual minority rights.
