En la región hay cinco cláusulas democráticas en cinco diferentes organismos. Ahora queda por ver cuál será el papel de la Argentina a cargo de UNASUR
In the four years since Maduro took office, the Venezuelan political machine has essentially ground to a halt and policy has gone off the rails.
La discrepancia entre lo legalmente estatuido y lo moralmente aceptable en Venezuela esta en un estado de flujo. ¿Tendrá un impacto la desobediencia civil en Venezuela?
A bipartisan bill from the U.S. Congress does what the Venezuelan government and others should have done long ago: offer assistance to its long-suffering citizens. Maduro isn’t likely to accept, but will other countries step up?
In the past week, chavismo has started to show shades of difference regarding President Maduro, the protests and the future of Venezuela. Could this be the beginning of end and the start of a peaceful exit?
Added to the very real risk of the flow of returning Colombians and Venezuelans fleeing across the border creating a massive refugee crisis, security experts are also concerned about a possible military conflict ginned up by a wounded Maduro government.
Many knew where Venezuela was heading long ago, even as early as the 1999 election of the Constituent Assembly. So why wasn’t the regional community more prepared?
The March 28 OAS Permanent Council discussion on Venezuela was a not-so-subtle rebuke to the failed efforts at dialogue. Instead of acknowledging shifting international opinion, though, the next day Venezuela Supreme Court gave the OAS its sharpest example yet of an “interruption in the constitutional process.” Now what?
In the strongest language so far, a joint statement signed by 14 states (and supported by 4-more Caribbean states) condemns Venezuela under the Inter-Democratic Charter. And it asks other member states to follow up if Venezuela doesn’t comply.
Don’t be fooled. President Maduro’s call for UN help in addressing Venezuela’s humanitarian crisis—of the government’s own making—is just another in a long line of distracting tactics.
