Over ten human rights organizations appeared before the Constitutional Court asking to adopt the definition of domicile contained in the Civil Code, as provided in the Political Constitution and Law 43/1993

The policy of love

In Venezuela, a law was passed imposing harsh penalties for those who promote hatred and fascism. Pretending to eradicate hate and impose love is a typical feature of tyranny.

Constituting a black hole

The Constituent Assembly proposed by Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro will consume what remains of democracy in Venezuela. It will also make Maduro a dictator who will control all the powers of the state. The international community must vigorously oppose it.

Ready for the ICC?

A denunciation of the highest levels of the Venezuelan government before the ICC does not have, at least with the information available today, a solid legal foundation.

The Illegality of Venezuela’s Mass Deportations of Colombians

More than 1,000 Colombians have been deported simply for being Colombians in a certain area of Venezuela. According to the ILC, the collective deportation of foreigners is prohibited.

The Mail of Dishonor

In one of the most difficult moments of the French Revolution (September 1793), when Robespierre feared that his political project would topple, the revolutionary government promulgated a law that identified suspects as "all those who due to their behavior, relationships, intent, or writings, reveal themselves in favor of federalism and as enemies of liberty."

Rights Without Borders

The tragedy of forced displacement violates the fundamental rights of those who must abandon their families, their homes and their jobs in order to survive. It is imperative that recipient countries have policies that guarantee the life, integrity and, family reunification of those who are victims of forced displacement.

Why Venezuela is a dictatorship

The dismantling of democracy can be incremental, like it was in Venezuela. First, there was the co-option of the courts, then the persecution of the political opposition, and last year, the suspension of regional elections. And now, with the Constituent Assembly, Maduro leapt into the dark.

The forgotten migrants of Venezuela

The lack of memory of Latin Americans explains why the region knows so little, and does less, about the situation of more than one million Venezuelan migrants who have arrived in our countries during the last five years.

An immature Constituent Assembly

The Constituent Assembly convened by Maduro does not seek to forge a pact between opposing forces, but seeks to crush the opposition through an antidemocratic mechanism, which is also unconstitutional. The international community and even authentic Chavismo should oppose it.
