Hi all,

I think that it might be worth at least mentioning in the release some of
the most flagrant, recent and ongoing human rigthts violations in
Argentina. The banning of international civil society is not an isolated
case. And given that the Argentine government is (was?) sensitive to
international pressure, I think it can be a good idea to highlight some of
the unobjectionable cases:

For example, the IACHR pronounced itself on multiple times regarding the
situation of Milagro Sala, a social activist:

IACHR also granted a Protection Measure to Santiago Maldonado, a murdered
social activist:

*Tl;Dr:* Maybe it is not necessary to name the cases of Maldonado and Sala
by name, but perhaps its wroth highlighting in the release the multiple
instances in the last year that the IACHR has issued alerts about the
situation of human rights in Argentina.
