Urgent call to action – Do not promote the NGO Bill

hoq-hasimun1

On Wednesday May 25, 2016 a hearing will take place in the Constitution, Law and Justice Committee regarding the bill and the requirement to disclose donations from a foreign political entity. The bill in question was promoted by the government under the guise of promoting transparency; however the true purpose of the bill is to mark out certain organizations as illegitimate and to impose disproportionate restrictions upon them, that would harm their activities.
