A group of human rights organizations form Latin America, Spain, Palestine and the Sahrawi Republic call for a global campaign for the freedom of political prisoners so that the Pandemic does not become a death sentence for thousands of people locked up for political reasons, whether fraudulent legal proceedings have been mounted, or whether their judicial situation was substantially changed for political reasons.
To face the pandemic, and its dire economic, social and political consequences, articulated actions are needed from a humanitarian perspective. The world not only needs public health plans and actions, it is also essential democracy and very firm limits to the egoism of the most concentrated economic power.
The political prisoners are the result of the cut in democracy, as lethal as that of the health system.
