Human Rights Network of the Americas to Prepare Report in October

In October, the Network of Human Rights of the American continent will prepare a report about the plans made to incorporate some of the most sensitive themes on the subject.

The announcement was made by the Ombudsperson of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Gabriela Ramírez, during a program on VTV, a TV state channel.

Venezuela, the headquarter nation, currently acts as the spokesperson for the institution of human rights on the continent.

Ramírez explained that the purpose of the network is to make a plan on the most sensitive human rights issues.

Likewise, she indicated that the objective of the meeting in Venezuela is to elaborate a plan that will be presented to the Assembly in October in Madrid, Spain.

The ombudsperson stated that the consolidation of the network is important, such as the statutes of the functioning of the national institutions of human rights, a topic discussed last March in Geneva, Switzerland.

She added that in Geneva ombudspersons, attorneys and commissioners agreed that the human rights bodies should place special emphasis on the most vulnerable and excluded populations.

She said that in Delta Amacuro, an indigenous community Council of Human Rights was sworn in. "The people there suffer the highest levels of poverty and exclusion."

Ramírez announced also that the "Juan Vive Suria" Foundation was created, with the objective to train public officials in matters of human rights.

There are also 25 Councils for the Defense of Human Rights, in which members will be part of their own Community Councils. "Their own community should create the discourse on human rights, regarding the most sensitive needs,"
she said.
