We are holding a conference on the occasion of Bastille Day 14th July with exiled dissidents, journalists, activists from China, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, who will share their experiences of living in exile in France and Europe. We will focus on how over the last few years, their home countries are trying to intimidate, harass and even kill such dissidents in exile. We are holding this debate on the French national day to remind people of the values France and Europe offers for protection of dissidents and how these values are being eroded and compromised due to economic linkages, and other political concerns. We will be joined by a representative from Reporters without Borders (RSF).
