Campaigning for Social Justice, Democracy and Human Rights in Venezuela.
We are part of a community firmly raising our voices against the authoritarian moves of the Venezuelan government and denouncing the violation of human rights, the collapse of the rule of law and the deep humanitarian, economical, ethical and social crisis in the country.
We work from Norway and our platform operates as a non-profit organization, has no political affiliations and is made up entirely of volunteers. We have different professions, lifestyles, ideologies and ambitions, but we all agree in one thing: Venezuela needs a change. We need to recover democracy, social peace and economic sustainability. We also believe that the support of the international community in Venezuela´s crisis is important and raising awareness about the gravity of the situation is necessary to achieve such assistance. This is therefore our main goal.
In Norway, we are proud to represent the Foro Penal, the largest Venezuelan human rights NGO that provides free legal advice and support to the families and victims of repression. We are in close touch with Norwegian civilians, scholars, the media and NGO´s that have an interest in Venezuela. We also provide information and keep an open dialogue with members of the Norwegian congress (Stortinget) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (Utenriksdepartementet), and work at establishing new meaningful relationships with other public institutions and private organizations in order to facilitate the exchange of information and the opening of communication channels with Venezuela.
Our platform is also part of a network of similar organizations and groups outside of Norway including close collaboration ties in Sweden, Spain, The Netherlands, France and the UK. Do not hesitate to contact us for further information or if you want to help as well.
If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice, say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter.
