Venezuela

Return of Manuel Rosales, leader of the UNT Party, to Venezuela

15 October 2015

 

The Socialist International is closely following the return today of Manuel Rosales, leader of Un Nuevo Tiempo (UNT), to Venezuela. The ex-presidential candidate is flying this afternoon from the Island of Aruba to the city of Maracaibo, capital of the State of Zulia, where Rosales served as its former Governor, thus putting an end to his six years in exile.

The Socialist International expresses solidarity with the decision of the leader of the UNT, one of its member parties in Venezuela. With his return, Manuel Rosales defends the fundamental right of all Venezuelans to live in their own country. He returns to Venezuela fully aware that he is affected by an open judicial process against him. The Socialist International demands once again the Venezuelan judicial authorities to respect and guarantee the due process of all those with open cases, or who are serving sentences for political reason in that country.

The Socialist International considers Manuel Rosales’s decision to return as a new mark of the determination and efforts undertaken by the leaders and members of the opposition forces united together in the Mesa de Unidad Democrática, in order to achieve the realisation of free and just parliamentary elections on 6 December this year.

The Socialist International calls to respect the right of assembly and the freedom of speech of UNT militants, supporters of Manuel Rosales and citizens of Maracaibo, who have already announced their mobilisation on the occasion of the arrival of the opposition leader.

In support of democracy in Uganda


22 FEBRUARY 2016


In recent years the people of Africa have continued advancing and moving forward democratic governance in an important number of countries of the region. Today, more and more people in that continent enjoy freedoms and rights, a precondition for progress, development and peace. Members of the Socialist International in a good number of countries in Africa have been protagonists and actors of an era of change that has been bringing new opportunities and a new face to the political life of the continent. Nevertheless, authoritarianism, oppression and other evils of the past still linger in the political life of some of the countries in the region...

SI Solidarity with the Pakistani people

The Socialist International expresses its solidarity with the people of Pakistan as they come to terms with the horrendous terrorist attack carried out yesterday near Lahore.

We strongly denounce this violent act, as we have other such terrorist attacks in Pakistan and elsewhere. Our thoughts and condolences are with the family and friends of the deceased and our sympathy is with all those injured and suffering as a result...

The Socialist International denounces the grave disregard of the sovereign will of the Venezuelan people and the usurpation of powers by the Constitutional Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ) of the country, which yesterday declared as unconstitutional the Amnesty and National Reconciliation Law that had been approved by a majority in the National Assembly on 29 March this year. The resounding electoral victory in the elections to the National Assembly at the beginning of December 2015 was based on a clear proposal...

SI calls for an immediate end to the confrontation between Azerbaijanis and Armenians


04 APRIL 2016


The Socialist International has followed with great concern the hostilities and attacks that have taken place in the last 48 hours between Armenians and Azerbaijanis with a regrettable loss of numerous lives. Our International calls for an immediate ceasefire and for an end to these hostilities, and at the same time reiterates the urgent need for a resumption of dialogue within the framework of the Minsk Group, a body accepted by both Armenia and Azerbaijan and recognised by the multilateral organisations, to resolve through negotiation and in accordance with the principles of international law...
