Venezuela: Communiqué of the ISHR and the Andrei Sajarov Foundation
In the face of the recent wave of crime against the Venezuelan civilian population, which is claiming respect for democracy and its institutions, perpetrated by the new candidate for totalitarian strongman, Hugo Chávez, our organizations of Human Rights express their firm condemnation and make a public call to the international public opinion so that it condemns in categorical fashion the barbarism which, under the direct influence of the Stalinists directives captained by Fidel Castro from Havana, threatens to subject the whole of Venezuelan society to debacle and tyrannical submission.
The subterfuges and false arguments that the ‘Chavismo’ is employing in Venezuela are the same that have been used by other despots that ended up in the extermination of millions of human beings with the sole purpose of perpetuating themselves in power and of creating dynasties of executioners such as Adolph Hitler, Mao Tse Tung, Benito Mussolini and Fidel Castro.
A new wave of fascist and Stalinist national socialism is going round Latin America, spearheaded by Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, in quite the same way it went around Europe for decades last century. Those who fight for the integral respect for human rights, anywhere in the planet, can not remain impassive facing this new cycle which can returns us to medieval servility.
