Latin America and Europe facing growing authoritarianism

The Forum 2000 Foundation organized the ninth edition of the “Democratic Solidarity in Latin America” conference in Montevideo, Uruguay, on 13–15 March. On the last day of the conference, there was a public discussion on Latin America and Europe facing growing authoritarianism, which was attended by students and members of civil society. The Forum 2000 Foundation and members of Democratic Solidarity signed a letter requesting the Venezuelan government to comply with the Barbados Agreement. The letter, sent to diplomatic delegations of the countries present at the signing of the agreement, calls for a fair electoral process to be guaranteed in the country and for María Corina Machado to be allowed to run as the legitimate opposition candidate.
