"There is no possibility that UNASUR will validate any attempt to disrupt the democratic process in any country in the region," said Samper.
During a meeting in Quito, Ecuador, which included representatives from other regional bodies including Mercosur, ALBA, Pacific Alliance, the Andean Community, and the Amazon Treaty Cooperation Agreement, Samper added that the sanctions against Venezuela, and the timing of the action, were not good signs.: http://www.removingtheshackles.blogspot.ca/2015/03/south-america-just-stood-up-can-i-get.html?m=1
