Human Rights Watch and Latin America

Human Rights Watch has just issued its 2010 report on the human rights situation over the past 12 months in more than 90 countries around the world. The basis of HRW's work is this: "Every government is at times tempted to violate human rights, but the global human rights movement has made sure that abuse carries a price." The full report is available as a pdf file here, but it's more than 600 pages long. Individual country reports are also downloadable. (see list). Unfortunately, the report often misses events that took place during December 2009, apparently due to the deadline of the report writers. Unfortunate.
