Human Rights in Venezuela

In Venezuela the fear for human rights has been rising. Security detained around 3300 people during demonstrations and many of them are still locked up. Many of these people are being held locked up on "politically motivated" charges. There has been 45 cases of human rights violations committed by the security forces. Some of these include beatings, electric shock or burns and other abusive treatments. The government has recently granted the military new rights to use force to maintain public order during meetings or demonstrations. As the situation in the country continues to get worse the president is turning to the armed forces to get control of the country.
All around the world the armed forces are turned to to gain control of people. People should be not arrested because of speaking about how the feel about a situation. And if they are arrested torturing and beating them while they are detained in jail goes completely against human rights.
