In recent years he has also carried out 20 field missions on behalf of Amnesty International, gathering testimonies and talking to the respective governments.

Certain conditions exist that are systematically taken advantage of to promote demonization policies. Inequality is increasing in many parts of the world, as is the perception of cultural displacement, and politicians take advantage of this sitaution making use of simplified discourse that identify scapegoats to blame for causing a popular sensation of discontent, often migrant people or other minorities.


Hate and fear have passed from being rhetoric to being reality, as many governments have attempted to apply policies that standardise large-scale discrimination of minorities and marginalised groups. With few leaders prepared to stand in defense of human rights in the world scenario, governments are removing without any shame guarantees of human rights protections which has taken a lot of effort to obtain.

Faced with this situation, people are mobilising because governments do not satisfy their basic needs, especially in matters of housing, work and economic rights. The alarming increase in inequality is creating an ideal climate for the exacerbation of the social division, resulting in an increased risk of human rights violations.

With outstanding leaders attempting to undermine fundamental liberties, and war crimes against humanity ignored, the lack of leadership on matters of human rights on a global scale has had dangerous consequences.

Raising your voice has become increasingly more dangerous, and governments must invert this tendency if we want to protect our valued eerechos to freedom of expression. Attacks against the mass media have reached unprecedented extremes, as has happened with attacks against human rights activists. Societies can only flourish if they are prepared to scrutinise those in power, rather than refraining from doing so.
