Mary O’Grady reports on how The Latin Left Hijacks Human Rights. The Inter-American Commission meeting was about revenge, not reconciliation.
Ms. García told me that the moderator, commission executive secretary Paulo Abrão, was complicit in his silence during the uproar. Later, she told me, he announced that the curriculum will deal only with abuses committed by states. This, Ms. García noted, is “in clear contradictiwon to the postulates” of the commission. Another witness noted that the Venezuelan Marxists were not cut off when they accused civilians in their country of human-rights crimes.
Moreover, Mr. Abrão did not intervene when a Chilean called for a show of hands to expel the Argentines from the meeting, which is what transpired.
María Elena García’s “organization works to secure due process and humanitarian treatment for Argentines who fought guerrilla terrorism and are imprisoned in violation of their civil liberties.” She and her associates were expelled from the meeting, after commission executive secretary Paulo Abrão announced that the curriculum would deal only with abuses committed by states.
The left = totalitarianism.
