Venezuelan Situation (English HD Version) by Alessandra Carolina Sironi Malave
Watch this video if you’re unsure of the current events happening in Venezuela and please reblog to spread awareness. The Venezuelan government is controlling major television outlets and has shut down Twitter in order to silence their citizens from reporting their injustices. Please don’t allow this to go unnoticed.
Hey friends! Someone who lives in Venezuela messaged me and told me that another student was shot and killed today while protesting and there’s rumors an 8 year old girl was murdered as well. There are people who are also looting stores at this moment in Maracay, but there’s more that’s happened and is continuing to happen.
Tumblr user breakeven20 posted “12 dias de protesta, 15 muertos, 589 detenidos, 20 desparecidos, 18 torturados, 12 de los fallecidos muertos por tiro en la cabeza…” which translates to: “12 days of protest, 15 dead, 589 arrested, 20 disappeared, 18 tortured, 12 killed by head shot.”
There are photos of militia viciously beating protesters including a militar woman pulling another woman by her hair, throwing her to the ground, sitting on top of her, and beats her using her helmet while others watch and laugh.
These savages are breaking into homes with guns in their hands, shooting aimlessly at and into places of residence, and are continuing to MURDER protesters.
By Chrisandra22 on Twitter: “Young man dead by shot in the head by armed gang by Gov. called “The Tupamaros”. Cagua, Aragua State, VENEZUELA.” Trigger warning: the tweet contains a picture of the man laying dead on the sidewalk.
Venezuela is in a dire need of our help and, although we cannot do anything to help stop the destruction of peace and the denial of their human rights, we can help to spread information about the injustices currently happening in their country. Knowledge is power and unless more people are educated about it, these militia will continue to reign and they will continue to murder anyone who opposes them and their corrupt government.
