Venezuela Protests: human rights at risk, people at risk
Venezuela seems to be on the brink of an abyss. Since the beginning of February 2014, the country has been shaken up by violence triggered by demonstrations pro and against the government in some parts of the country. This has led to over 37 deaths, over 500 injured and over 2,000 arrests. Human rights violations and abuses in the context of protests must stop.
