2014-02-18

Venezuela's Episcopal Conference is speaking out about the country's tension calling for "respect and the protection of human rights.”  Following a series of protests, at least three people have died and dozens of people have been injured in different cities. Thousands have taken to the streets, in light of the country's economic crisis and growing insecurity

In a letter, Bishops denounce the use of violence against citizens and the violation of human rights. They are also speaking out against random and unfounded arrests. 

So as part of the solution, Bishops are asking the government to respect its citizens and to guarantee a lawful judicial process. They're also asking for a list of all the protesters who have been detained, their whereabouts and the charges they face. 

Venezuela's Bishops also said  that the type of violence seen in recent weeks, leads to no where, adding that their thoughts and prayers are with victims and their families.

The president of Venezuela's Episcopal Conference,  Bishop Diego Padron, is calling the government of Nicolas Maduro to 'listen to the people' and to address their concerns.
