The tragic situation in Venezuela calls out for action. The Venezuelan people are starving while their government tramples their democracy. The international community must act even if the UN Human Rights Council and the Organization of American States are blocked from doing so. We applaud the continued efforts of those states who are committed to maintaining our hemisphere’s commitment to democracy.
