Letter to Peter Maurer - President of the International Committee of the Red Cross

Letter to Peter Maurer - President of the International Committee of the Red Cross

We understand that the Geneva Convention and its protocols are the cornerstone of international humanitarian law, actually our country face a system that has encouraged, and allowed, barbarism against civilians and militaries, 57 Venezuelans have been murdered protesting peacefully against the extermination laws, there are over 100 political prisoners. Right now, politicians and students prisoners have 150 hours in hunger strike demanding their immediate release.
We are writing this letter to you to urgently request to the Assembly and Council presence of the ICRC in Venezuela in order to visit and assist all political prisoners, students, tweeters and military victims of bloody repression, because you are guardians of international law. 
We think your visit will be the beginning of the end of the persecution and repression against Venezuelan citizens, in compliance with the Geneva Convention signed in 1949 , because today all our human rights in Venezuela are being violated.
We are young Venezuelans who are suffering constant repression attacks in the streets, in and out of our universities, workplaces and, we also fear the health of our friends who are unjustly deprived of their freedom, due to procedural delays, forcing their families to get naked (1), conducting violent searches, and subhuman prison spaces as "The Grave" and "The Tigrito".
Sending this letter we fear for our lives, and our families could be at risk for exposing the situation to you.
WE ASK THE PRESENCE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE RED CROSS IN VENEZUELA
