Rayner Peña reports on Panampost[1] of April 9 (EFE): “Venezula’s Parliament Denounces the Disappearance of 80 Indians” of the Pemon ethnic group since the end of February.

“The Venezuelan Parliament’s Interior Policy Committee denounced on Tuesday the disappearance of 80 indigenous Pemons from a region bordering with Brazil” since a confrontation with Venezuelan security forces last February, when they demanded that the government allow the entrance of humanitarian aid offered by Brazil and Colombia.

“According to the Parliament, ‘Pemon Indians were slaughtered’ as they faced Maduro’s security forces, which prevented the entrance of international humanitarian aid.

There were at least 7 dead and many wounded Pemons, some of whom were taken to Brazilian hospitals across the border.”

Human rights organizations, anthropologists and the Synod of the Amazon, led by Cardinal Claudio Hummes should strongly condemn this ‘slaughter’ of the Pemon people and demand an answer from Maduro on “whether they are alive or dead, (for) this is a very serious situation.”
