Geraldine started her peaceful campaigning when she was just 14 as a youth leader in Caracas.
Since then her activism has only grown – she started an Amnesty youth network and supported individuals who were at risk of imprisonment and persecution, and later joined the NGO Community Ambassadors Foundation running outreach programs with impoverished young people in Venezuela.
Now, Geraldine finds herself in need of the same help she has given many others. This year the Venezuelan authorities arrested her, and she spent four months in prison with limited access to sunlight, food and water.
Geraldine was released conditionally which means she cannot leave the country, and she risks being sent back to prison at any moment.
Sign this petition and demand the Venezuelan authorities drop the case against Geraldine.
With enough global pressure, we could get the Venezuelan authorities to drop the charges – add your voice now.
