Report of GUE/NGL Delegation to Kazakhstan



Report of GUE/NGL Delegation to Kazakhstan

Prior to the delegation, Human rights and Workers´ Rights activists in Kazakhstan had informed the delegation about the general situation with respect to basic democratic rights, the right to free speech, the freedom to assemble, to form trade unions, to hold protests etc.

The fact that Kazakhstan holds the Chairmanship of the OSCE seemed to be an important moment to measure the promises of the Kazakh government against the real situation on the ground. Our main priority therefore was to meet with civil society organisations, independent trade unionists and the major opposition parties that are campaigning for the democratisation of the country.

The delegation is extremely grateful to the GUE/NGL group in the European Parliament that made this delegation possible and by doing so helped to increase our understanding of the situation facing Kazakh society.
