    I cannot agree more. Being criminalised for saying NO to illegal logging, is a mystery to me and 19 others from the Chuka Community who camped in the forest in 2014/15, together with over 400 other environmental rights defenders, to physically prevent the cutting down of trees.

    For over 2 years now, we go to a criminal court and in my opinion public litigation against criminalization of Human Rights Defenders must be given a lot of weight.

    Personally, a reference to the constitutional court would be a great mitigation against treating Human Rights Defenders as criminals.

    Kindly also link me up to support.
