The CETIM draws the attention on the situation encountered by peoples in three countries of the American continent.
Three written statements have been presented at the 36th session of the United Nation Human Rights Council (September 2017).
Concerned by a unilateral presentation of the situation in Venezuela that encourages violence, CETIM denounces the media attacks, both from inside and abroad, against the process of social transformations in Venezuela. These press, radio and TV campaigns, but also via the internet and social networks, orchestrated by the moneyed powers, stir up hatred and spread the lies against the progressive movement.
The CETIM is extremely preoccupied by the unilateral, illegal and illegitimate embargo impose by the United States on Cuba for more than 55 years, provoking numerous violations of the Cuban people’s human rights. This embargo has recently been reinforced by the new U.S. administration.
On the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, and in the light of the current very difficult situation of the Mapuche people, CETIM wishes, in the following written statement and in constructive dialogue with the Chilean State, to recall the commitments that have been made to indigenous peoples.
