|Summary text/ abstract||In all of Latin America, social protest, as well as organizations and social leaders, are criminalized by governments – both neo-liberal and progressive –, in order to silence their voices of dissent, delegitimize their struggle, immobilize popular organizations and intimidate all those individuals who practice their legitimate right to organize, freely express their opinion, and demand respect for their rights. The methods to criminalize social organizations and their leaders are numerous: arbitrary detention, preventive imprisonment subject to excessive prolongation, criminal prosecutions, false or unfounded criminal charges, no respect towards the due process of law, disproportionate sanctions, persecution, hostility and physical aggression, direct state repression, murdering of protesters and advocates, forced disappearances, and the questioning of rights such as the right to strike and popular mobilization.|
