Venezuela is suffering an unprecedented human rights crisis that is not only affecting millions of people inside the country but which has also forced one in every ten people in Venezuela to leave their homes in the last four years. These millions of people, both inside and outside the country, have suffered and are continuing to suffer human rights violations such as the right to life, health or food, rights which are neither guaranteed nor protected by Nicolás Maduro’s government.
Amnesty International launched a report and a campaign asking the governments in the region to adopt better immigration policies to facilitate the help of Venezuelan nationals that are fleeing the biggest humanitarian crisis in the continent.
