Posted in Piñera a La Haya

Send Chile’s President Piñera to the International Criminal Court in the Hague to stand Trial

We support the petition launched by the Chile-Sweden National Human Rights Commission addressed to the International Criminal Court in The Hague

Summary:

Serious human rights violations have taken place in Chile since the start of the social awakening as of the 18th of October 2019, when the Chilean people filled the streets to demonstrate against social injustices. From all around the world we are shocked and outraged over the extreme violence used by the security forces under the command of President Piñera. These crimes have been performed systematically with the intention to injure, punish and scare protesters.

The campaign “Piñera a La Haya” was started in support of the accusations of crimes against humanity, presented by Chilean and international lawyers to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague. We hope that more accusations continue to be added to the ones already presented. The goal is to get 10.000 signatures, to be able to send the petition to the ICC in the Hague and show that there is support of the accusations.

Make your voice heard. Please sign the petition and spread it!”
