In Venezuela, with medicines lacking or too costly, a doctor laments: ‘We are simply watching people die’
In her moving account, the doctor describes how, after cleaning up the wound, she went looking for the little girl’s father to explain to him the gravity of his daughter’s condition; she found him kneeling on the floor, weeping.
The statement denounces “the growing, politically motivated repression, the violation of human rights and the selective and arbitrary detentions” of individuals; the statement calls for peaceful democratic change in accord with the country’s Constitution.
“These elections will not resolve the problem of the social crisis, and for that reason they are without legitimacy. These elections should be postponed, because in reality they are neither legal nor democratic.”
