Legal actions to Venezuelan Government for crimes against Humanity by The International Court of Justice

Venezuela lives a political, social and humanitarian crisis caused by the Venezuelan government; its economic policies and corruption have induced to a breaking point of hyperinflation and rampant shortages of food and medicines. In addition, the Venezuelan government has broken the democratic rules and rights when the Supreme Court stripped the country’s National Assembly of its independent power, through this, the last vestiges of Venezuela’s democracy have been torn down; leaving what is not just an authoritarian regime, but an outright dictatorship.

Motivated by these facts, Venezuelan people started in April a series of peaceful protests and demonstrations across the country demanding a democratic solution to the crisis. In the last 46 days, Nicolás Maduro’s regime has violently attacked these demonstrations with acts of repression and punishment toward the civilian population.

The result of this repression have been many protesters injured and killed by the National Guard, Police Forces and the Government militia, people who are being systematically disappeared by the regime forces, political imprisonment without trial, civilians detained and brought to Military Justice accused of treason, prisoners being tortured, people being attacked by the National Guard in their own homes through the indiscriminate use of tear gas.

Venezuela has received increasing coverage from international media, such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, ABC, NBC, CNN and others, but this is still not enough. Many people are still unaware of the unfolding crisis.

It is necessary that the international community acts quickly, in order to stop these acts of systematic and deliberate violence against the Venezuelan people by the government and its main representative President Nicolas Maduro, thus preventing these crimes and violations to continue happening.

Sign this petition and ask The International Court of Justice to conduct an investigation against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro for crimes against Humanity.
