We propose a generalisation of the Weak Gravity Conjecture in de Sitter spaceby studying charged black-holes and comparing the gravitational and anabelian gauge forces. Using the same condition as in flat space, namely theabsence of black-hole remnants, one finds that for a given mass m thereshould be a state with a charge q bigger than a minimal value qmin(m, l),depending on the mass and the de Sitter radius l , in Planck units. In the largeradius flat space limit (large l), qmin->m leading to the known result q > m / ..2, while in the highly curved case (small l) qmin behaves as ..ml.Wealso discuss the example of the gauged R-symmetry in N = 1 supergravity.
