Erika Guevara Rosas said : “None of these recommendations can be effective in isolation. But in combination, and with the wealth of determination and experience that exists in Latin America and the Caribbean, they can form a solid roadmap towards accountable, effective policing that protects the human rights of everyone. By following them, states can create a region where police abuses are an outlier rather than a trend,” External link

Erika Guevara Rosas said : “Two years ago, thousands of people in Chile courageously took to the streets to demand greater equality and human rights, such as a decent pension, housing, education and quality public health. The authorities’ response was violent repression and criminalization of social protest, through excessive use of force, and discriminatory and disproportionate use of pre-trial detention, among other serious human rights violations – a situation that, to date, the government has persisted in denying or minimizing,” External link
