PARAGUAY: April 16-24, 2013 PDF Print E-mail
This delegation will play the very important role of observing presidential elections. Last June the right-wing congress used a bloody confrontation between landless peasants and police forces as a pretext for removing President Fernando Lugo, an ex-bishop inspired by liberation theology who ran on a platform of agrarian reform and whose victory ended the 61-year rule of the Stroessner’s Colorado Party. The “express coup” was condemned throughout the region, andParaguay was removed from UNASUR and Mercosur by fellow Latin American governments. The delegation will look at issues of violations of human rights, criminalization of social protest and the militarization of the north.

The delegation fee of $1,250 includes all meals, lodging, transportation, and materials within the country. It does not include travel to and from Paraguay.
