The United Nations (UN) General Assembly passed on Monday Venezuela's inclusion in the UN Commission on Human Rights. Argentina and Brazil, for the Latin America region, were also voted as successors of Cuba, Mexico and Uruguay.

In direct and secret voting, and by absolute majority, Venezuela was elected together with 17 countries: Argentina, Brazil, Estonia, Ethiopia, Gabon, Germany, Ireland, Ivory Coast, Japan, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Korea, Montenegro, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, UAE and the United States, Efe listed.

Venezuela's entry into the Commission, to be made formal next January 1, has been harshly criticized by advocates, such as Human Rights Foundation or Human Rights Watch. According to these organizations, the country fails to meet the requirements to form part of an organization that ensures universal rights.

Gagging Twitter users

Pablo Jiménez Guaricuco was summarily dismissed from his Clerk III job at the Autonomous Service of Public Registries and Notaries' Offices (Saren). He read a notice published in a newspaper on November 5 informing the public that he was no longer employed to the Saren. He was sacked despite the fact that he was taking a leave of absence from work due to a work-related accident, and that he enjoyed security of employment under the parental job-immunity privilege. Most probably, the decision was influenced by his role as a union organizer. But what did he do, besides leading protests, to deserve the sack? Well, he allegedly sent off a series of tweets that definitely hurt the sensitivity of the Saren Directorate.
