US lawmakers offer measure condemning Venezuela abuses

Anti-government demonstrators protest in eastern Caracas on February 28, 2014Citing Venezuela’s “inexcusable” violence against anti-government demonstrators, US lawmakers introduced a measure Friday condemning the oppressive tactics and urged President Barack Obama to impose sanctions on those responsible for the crackdown. The bipartisan resolution expresses House members’ firm support for Venezuela’s pro-democracy demonstrators and urges other governments and organizations in the region to stand in solidarity with the protesters and help bring about a dialogue to end the crisis. Congress “deplores acts which constitute a disregard for the rule of law, the inexcusable violence perpetrated against opposition leaders and protesters in Venezuela, and the growing efforts to use politically motivated criminal charges to intimidate the country’s political opposition,” the non-binding resolution states. A similar resolution was introduced Thursday in the US Senate.
