Protestors are being shot, injured, burned and disfigured by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government and Spain-based Andres De Francisco has started a timely petition on Change.org. The petition asks the International Criminal Court to conduct an investigation against Maduro for crimes against humanity.
Just last week, a 22-year-old protester was killed when a national guardsman shot him in the chest at close range with rubber bullets. De Francisco states that "it is necessary that the international community acts quickly, in order to stop these acts of systematic violence and deliberately committed actions against the Venezuelan people by the Venezuelan government and its main representative President Nicolas Maduro, thus preventing these crimes and violations to continue happening."
More than 70 people have been killed and hundreds injured in almost three months of demonstrations. Please sign the petition to attract the attention of International Criminal Court here.
