Tutu Alicante
Sub-Saharan Africa

Human rights lawyer Tutu Alicante describes the deplorable situation in his home country, Equatorial Guinea, where the oppressive, decades-long rule of Teodoro Obiang has resulted in endemic corruption and widespread poverty. Alicante reveals that although large amounts of Equatoguinean oil are imported to theU.S., very few people are aware of the human rights abuses of the Obiang regime.However, Alicante believes that courage, creativity, and commitment are powerful tools in the fight to end repression and change the world. He emphasizes the importance of freedom of expression in the fight against dictatorship and hopes to inspire others with the idea that “we make the road by walking.”
