Situation of Human Rights in Latin America.

The situation of human rights and democracy has deteriorated in recent years in the region due to the assumption of several governments and the consolidation of various anti-democratic regimes.

Cuba

Thousands of people took to the streets on July 11 to peacefully protest against the economic situation, medicine shortages, the government's response to COVID-19, and harsh restrictions on the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, in one of the biggest demonstrations in decades

Venezuela

Security forces, including the Police Special Action Force, continued to carry out extrajudicial executions. In January, 14 men died during a security operation in the La Vega parish in the capital, in circumstances that suggested they might have been victims of extrajudicial execution.

Nicaragua

The human rights crisis persisted in Nicaragua. Journalists, human rights defenders and health professionals continued to face a hostile environment. Political activists, human rights defenders and journalists were frequently arbitrarily detained. Indigenous peoples continued to endure violence.
