As many as 40,000 people have died as a result of the illegal US-led sanctions in Venezuela. Children and old people have borne the brunt of the suffering. Malnutrition which had all but disappeared is now on the rise because of the blockade. In spite of claims to the opposite, hospital patients including cancer sufferers have been denied life-saving medicines.
Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention specifically forbids collective punishment.
We call on the UN and world leaders to use whatever means possible to put an end to this barbaric and illegal action by the US and it's allies.
