CWN Editor's Note: The report documents “the disproportionate use of force by police, sometimes resulting in extrajudicial killings; enforced disappearances; widespread arbitrary detentions; torture and ill-treatment; and violations of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, and of peaceful assembly.” The report also notes the bishops’ condemnation of violence and desire to mediate.
