The United Nations (UN) General Assembly passed on Monday Venezuela's inclusion in the UN Human Rights Council. Argentina and Brazil, for the Latin America region, were also voted as successors of Cuba, Mexico and Uruguay.

In direct and secret voting, and by absolute majority, Venezuela was elected together with 17 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Ethiopia, Gabon, Germany, Ireland, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Korea, Montenegro, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, UAE and the United States, Efe listed.

Venezuela's entry into the Council, to be made formal next January 1, has been harshly criticized by advocates, such as Human Rights Foundation or Human Rights Watch. According to these organizations, the country fails to meet the requirements to form part of an organization that ensures universal rights.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
