The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) monitors the escalating levels of persecution, violence, discrimination, harassment, and imprisonment directed against those who have openly criticized the government of Venezuela.
The Caracas Nine campaign focuses on the plight of nine Venezuelans who spoke their minds and paid a price.
These nine men and women are from all walks of lifefrom a law student to a judge; from a military general to a journalist. Their stories bear witness to the deplorable state of human rights in Venezuela today, where only those who conform utterly to the demands of the regime are safe from persecution. The Caracas Nine include survivors of discrimination, censorship, intimidation, false arrest, imprisonment, and torture.
The Human Rights Foundation is committed to raising awareness about the growing crisis and doing whatever is possible to protect the survivors of persecution.
