WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Impose sanctions against members of the Nicolas Maduro regime who continuously commit Human Rights violations.

Since February 2014, students from Venezuelan universities have been protesting high inflation rates, food shortages, high crime rates, and human rights abuses, a consequence of a country oppressed by a regime where there is no separation of powers and no accountability. Maduro’s disproportionate response--beating, jailing, torturing and killing-- is being overlooked by the world as media outlets have been censored. We appreciate the swift response that the US Congress have taken through legislation. However, it is not enough. Maduro’s regime continues its heinous attacks against Venezuelans. We ask that stiff sanctions be enacted against human rights violators in Venezuela and that H.R.4229 be enacted when it comes to President’s Obama’s desk for signature.
