Oriette Ledezma

“We still have hope for a democratic transition”

Oriette Ledezma is a lawyer and a Venezuelan activist. Oriette was born in Venezuela and has been in open opposition of the Chavista regime since she was young. Throughout her career as a lawyer she has fought hard for the protection of human rights in her country. On 2014, Oriette became a leader in several protests against the Venezuelan government, fighting against the oppression of Chavez and later of President Nicolás Maduro. On February 19, 2015, Oriette lived the injustice of the Venezuelan government in her own home when they kidnapped her stepfather Antonio Ledezma, who was then the Metropolitan Mayor of Caracas. The arrest has been denounced by the international human rights community as a politically motivated effort to silence the opposition leader. Due to the lack of judicial independence in Venezuela, he was not offered a fair trial and, 2 years after his arrest, he remains in judicial limbo. Currently, Oriette is part of the Committee of Relatives of Political Prisoners and is one of the most important activists fighting for the release of more than 400 political prisoners in Venezuela. Oriette works everyday, denouncing the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela and raising the voice of political prisoners who have been silenced by the Venezuelan government.
