venezuela is facing a socioeconomic and political crisis. the reason behind this crisis, is years of hyperinflation, violence, and mismanagement of resources by the government.
there's been a number of human rights violations in the country which include extrajudicial+
executions, arbitrary detentions, excessive use of force and unlawful killings.
4 million+ venezuelans have fled the country due to the conditions the country is currently in. many of these are university graduates and professionals who have reduced+
themselves to minimum wage jobs in order to find living conditions better than those which are found at home.
in addiction to this, Venezuela is being attacked by US UK and others, starving the people, denying them meds, denying them basic needs.
There has been a low turnout at demonstrations and some protesters acknowledged being exhausted by dysfunctional public transportation, lack of power and water and crippling hyperinflation.
here i leave some threads and petitions for y’all to inform more: https://twitter.com/maxncfc_/status/1268662273989660673

Brazil has more then 63 thousand deaths and 1,5 million cases of covid-19. Bolsonaro, their president, is still saying that the use of masks and social distancing is not necessary and that also this virus is just a “cold” and they don’t have to worry about anything.
Bolsonaro is also against the liberation of mining and energy exportation in indigenous lands. Here is a petition to fight againt this. http://chng.it/SSh9ptsJ

this country is going through a lot of economic issues since october and no one talks about them. there are people that their minimum salary is of 300k pesos chileons (373dollars) of course not everyone has that amount of money.
so to be able to make it till the end of the month you might probably need to have two jobs. there public transportation is now really expensive and the bus is 700 pesos (almost 10 dollars) and the subway is 800 pesos (11.32 dollars) which this for Chile is a lot.
also don’t forget that they have to go in public transportation two times a day and maybe five times a week or more. Also paying their houses its really expensive for them and thats why most of them are not in good conditions.
Because of all this they started to manifest since october and police intervened in a violent way.
Here is a thread w info and petitions https://twitter.com/koishit_/status/1272729980674375683
You might not know but mexico is one of the countries where women suffer the most. femicides there are really bad, to give you an idea they had 1000 in three months and this gets worst everyday. Because of covid-19 things are not that bad but there’s still big issues and+

this so they can go through quarantine and all that’s happening these days.
Also in mexico they may approve the law thats called “Federal Law of Copyright” which this one means that any type of copyright u make its going to have their consequences. That’s why places that make+
photocopies, repair phones or computers, they all become illegal and they must close then. So unemployment it’s going to start getting worst. For getting “legal” things or for example a good access to the internet you have to pay way more than before.
this is a thread w petitions that y’all can sign: https://twitter.com/paulinacotah/status/1268431080106803201

Their president (Lenin Moreno) can’t control the situation w the pandemic and everyday they have more cases and deaths. There they have something called “yellow traffic light” that it means they can hang out groups of less than 25 persons.
Also some persons took advantage of the covid and there were many cases of corruption.
They don’t have the necessary beds in hospitals and there are problems w the people that died of covid and giving the wrong ashes to the families of the victim.
They’ve been for 15 years in a dictatorship of Daniel Ortega, people with different opinion than him were killed. He also stole money from the government .
In 2018 people from Nicaragua decided to protest take away his power and so he decided to send the police+
and kill people who were there (they were going in a pacific way without any kind of weapon). Some people from this day are still in jail nowadays
No one really knows whats happening there because Ortega bought all the medias and ways of communication so no one knows nothing.
He’s lying about covid cases and deaths.
Also money that was sent to the country for medicine it’s not being used and he’s keeping it for himself.
If u know about any petition or link w information pls share

On April 1, Panama put into effect a gender-based quarantine schedule in response to Covid-19, requiring women and men to remain quarantined on alternate days. However, transgender people are being singled out for profiling by police and private security guards and
in some cases have been arrested and fined or prevented from buying essential goods. This is happening regardless of whether they attempt to follow quarantine measures based on the sex marker on their ID or do so based on their gender identity. https://www.bbc.com/news/stories-52668174
