“Unfortunately, I must say, this discontent manifested itself in serious episodes of violence, such as the unacceptable burning of Metro stations and the vandalization of civic centers. And, on the other hand, we witnessed an uncontrolled repression that ended with deaths, injuries and more than 400 people victims of ocular trauma as a result of State action, which constitutes, from the point of view of our Government and international human rights organizations, a serious violation of human rights that must be repaired and it will be“said the Head of State.
