CWN Editor's Note: The Catholic bishops of Venezuela have renewed their condemnation of “an illegitimate and bankrupt government,” and pleaded for “a return to the constitution.” In a public statement issued at the conclusion of their plenary meeting, the bishops reported multiple violations of human rights by the Maduro government, including arbitrary arrests, torture, mob violence, and brutality against civilians by the police and military.
