Timothy Gill

Human rights group PROVEA (Venezuela Program for Education and Action in Human Rights) has released the third edition of its new International Bulletin on Human Rights.

The Bulletin is released in Spanish, Portuguese, French and English and covers the most important human rights issues of the month. This edition looks at labor unrest, the Venezuelan government’s denunciation of the American Convention on Human Rights, and several laws that may have an adverse effect on social protest, including the Law against Organized Crime and the Financing of Terrorism, which was passed in May 2012.
