We are Africans
The preparations continue for the World Forum of the Decade for People of African Descent02.10.2015
The Government of Equatorial Guinea, by means of the Office of the Third Deputy Prime Minister for Human Rights, held by Alfonso Nsue Mokuy, is working on the organization of the next World Forum of the Decade for People of African Descent and Human Rights, which will bring together in Malabo more than 250 delegates coming from America and a similar number of African representatives.
During the preparations, to date working visits have been made to the Government and civil society of Honduras, Panama, El Salvador, Peru and United States, highlighting the visits to the Organization of American States (OAS), the United Nations (UN) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), among others.
Malabo will be the host city of this event during which the Agenda of the Decade for People of African Descent will be analyzed. The organization highlights the articulating role of Equatorial Guinea between both continents; a particular sensitive situation due to the fact that Spain was also the colonizing country, and for sharing the same language with their brothers of Latin American and the Caribbean region.
The technical secretary of the forum and director of the NGO CEDEPU Chile, Antonio Yelpi, has recently visited Argentina, where the interest was verified of participating in this forum by numerous representatives of countries such as Bolivia, Congo, Morocco, Angola, Columbia and Mexico. In a conversation in Buenos Aires in the framework of the Africa Solidarity Network, Yelpi recalled that, in the recently held General Assembly of the United Nations, Equatorial Guinea had shown its report of the Millennium Development Goals, having successfully surpassed their challenges.
