Amnesty International is Peddling Trump’s Regime-Change Propaganda Against Venezuela

  Amnesty International is Peddling Trump’s Regime-Change Propaganda Against Venezuela

Amnesty International‘s reports, by their nature, require readers to trust their honesty and impartiality. But there is ample reason not to trust them. Because Amnesty has ignored grave human rights abuses in plain sight in Venezuela while demonizing supporters of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
