On January 1, 2014


A thought to all those who have died prematurely this eventful year of political crisis in circumstances still unclear:


·          A Rayaleh Mahamoud Elmi, a professor of French and activist committed USN, found dead in his cell in the prison Gabode the morning of August 29, 2013,

·          A Hafez died young schoolboy Obock December 30, 2012 during clashes between young people of the region and the security forces,

·          In all other anonymous fallen to an ideal of freedom and democracy, to all victims of abuse of power and injustice …


Thought also to all those who are deprived of their freedom and their fundamental rights including:


·          To all political prisoners currently in Gabode

·          To all those who are deprived of their most basic rights,

·          To all those who are persecuted for their political commitment, humanistic, social, …


A wish to see the emergence of a genuine democracy in our country and the rule of law in which the dignity and rights of each and everyone will be respected.


A wish again, to see that men and / or women in our skies like Mandela who will cut the chains of discrimination, tribalism, dictatorship, violence against women and the Djiboutian children deprived of education and basic care.


The ODDH continue as sentinel to denounce all forms of violation of human rights and contribute to the full for the advent of a truly democratic constitutional state.


On behalf of the ODDH and on my own behalf b onne year to all. Year 2014 is that of the triumph of human dignity and the rights of peoples.


Act for democracy, dignity and justice.

The President of the ODDH
