The Venezuelan political consultant, psychologist and publicist, Juan José Rendón, said today at the XIV Latin American Summit on Political Marketing and Governance that Venezuelans who have emigrated to other borders must be called "displaced."
"Under International Humanitarian Law, we are displaced from the political violence of the dictatorship, not just exiled," he said in a private meeting with the Secretary General of the Organization of American States Luis Almagro, and other leaders of the summit.
"In Venezuela, we have not been educated to migrate. We migrate to study and tour and then we return. But nowadays we have a diaspora that reaches 2.5 million Venezuelans," he said.
The political consultant will chair today at 3:00 pm, local time, the closing ceremony of the event that takes place at the Miami Dade Collage Political Center in Florida (United States).
The close of the summit, attended by more than thirty Ibero-American political leaders and experts, will also include the participation of Argentine Carlos Souto and Spanish Yago de Marta, who will speak about messages and communication for election campaigns, elected governments and Latin vote market strategies.
