Dissenter: Incitement to hatred fails to end political prisoners' issue

Opposition Deputy Edgar Zambrano submitted some papers to the International Red Cross in defense of individuals that he has regarded as political prisoners and exiles. The deputy also remarked that the Government's incitement to hatred is not consistent with the dispute settlement manual

Opposition Deputy Edgar Zambrano submitted some papers to the International Red Cross in Caracas on Friday morning in defense of individuals regarded by him as political prisoners and exiles.

The deputy voiced critiques at the way the National Government, particularly Vice-President Nicolás Maduro, has dealt with the requests made by some of the relatives of the political prisoners and exiles, which seeks the adoption of humanitarian measures.

"The State must redesign its political approach in the country. This will only be possible by its recognition of the other, but taking incitement to hatred aside."

The deputy pointed out that nothing would be possible if the relatives of the more than 300,000 Venezuelans who have lost their lives in recent years in violent events are encouraged to retaliation.

"Should all victims' relatives are called upon to take revenge, then nothing provided for in the dispute settlement manual is been executed. Calling for hatred has nothing to do with autonomy or the independence of the branches of government," Zambrano remarked.

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.
