The president of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR), José de Jesús Orozco Henríquez, said he hoped "respectfully" that the Venezuelan state reconsiders its intention to leave the American Convention on Human Rights.

Referring to the Venezuelan Government decision to denounce the convention in November 2012, Orozco said in an interview published by Mexican newspaper La Jornada that there were "double standards" in the Commission with respect to Venezuela.

Orozco underscored that it is vital that the 35 States ratify or join the Inter-American Convention on Human Rights.

Although the conditions across Latin America are different from those of the 1970s, Orozco Henríquez warned against the reemergence of actions violating human rights upon the breach of the constitutional democratic order, absence of free and regular elections, and state of emergency.

This is all there is

A simple reason: there is oil galore, would suffice to explain Guyana's actions. Another explanation lies in the little or none efforts made by the Venezuelan government to thwart the move by the Guyanese. This is certainly not a new problem, but a problem only recently highlighted because oil is involved. But what other resources does the disputed area hold? For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
