Latin American Youth Network for Democracy Launches the #Libérenlos Campaign

July 1, 2018

As governments in Latin America increasingly utilize arbitrary detention as a means of silencing dissent, the Latin American Youth Network for Democracy (JuventudLAC) launched its new #Libérenlos campaign on June 7, 2018 in Caracas, Venezuela. The campaign, in collaboration with the World Movement’s #SetThemFree campaign, intends to bring awareness to arbitrarily detained activists by spreading awareness of these political prisoners. Currently, the campaign carries a focus on political prisoners in Venezuela to bring awareness to President Nicolás Maduro’s longstanding repressive policies. Learn more about their campaign.
