Activists Against Nguema’s UN Prize

Rights urge UNESCO to scrap the controversial prize named after one of Africa’s longest-ruling dictator

Human rights groups are urging the United Nations Education, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) to abandon a prize named after Africa's longest-ruling dictator, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, of Equatorial Guinea.

UNESCO board meets on 5 March 2012 to discuss the prize, which it accepted in 2008.

A chorus of outrage from around the world so far has delayed a decision on the prize that activists say should be quashed definitively.
