What is an Active Defender?

  An Active Defender is a person who, independently of their profession or job, joins the Foro Penal network for the promotion, education and defense of human rights in Venezuela.

Importance of Active Defenders

  The Active Defenders fulfill an important and fundamental role inside our organization, and for the communities that we serve.
An Active Defenders must always be peaceful, as violence is not accepted under any circumstance.

 There are four (4) tasks of an Active Defender:

1. Education: To promote the understanding of human rights in their communities through chats, forums, workshops, seminars, visits to schools, and any activity to pursue this objective.

2. Defense: To defend human rights that may be considered under attack, by attending the victims of state repression, engaging in pacific methods and non-violent protest.

3. Support: To provide support in locating the people arrested and those who require assistance from Foro Penal. To organize events in support, as long as such events have been authorized

4. Promotion: To continue to echo the actions and initiatives initiated by Foro Penal.

@Crisis_En_Vzla: @ForoPenal: En #Venezuela se ha utilizado la pandemia del #Covid19 para reprimir a los ciudadanos, limitando su libertad, el estado de alarma decretado por Nicolás Maduro restringe derechos, pero bajo ninguna circunstancia puede restringir la vida.
