This is happening right now in my country Venezuela. All around the country Militaries are killing people just because we are defending what is Good. We want justice! We were doing a pacific protest and then they came and started to shoot and use gas against people and the government says that people need to show respect for the militaries. People are being seriously injured and murdered. Respect? Democracy? Peace? NICOLAS YOU ARE NOT MY PRESIDENT YOU COWARD.
GUYS PLEASE RB, I KNOW THAT EVERYONE IS WORRIED ABOUT WHAT’S HAPPENING IN BOSTON BUT WE ARE ABOUT TO GO ON A CIVIL WAR IN VENEZUELA!!
THEY JUST MADE MADURO TAKE THE OATH AS PRESIDENT, THEY’RE BURNING THE BALLOT BOXES, AND THEY’RE LEAVING THE COUNTRY WITH ALL THE PEOPLE’S MONEY
Let’s add to that that no International entity recognizes the election’s results and are asking for a recount, yet the CNE allowed Maduro to take the oath (wich was supposed to be on the 19th). The CNE’s president is leaving the country now.
We’re officially in a dictatorship.
WHAT? HOW THIS IS NOT ALL OVER THE NEWS????
BECAUSE IT’S NOT CONVENIENT TO THOSE IN THE POWER.
The US is probably -and understandably- more occupied with the Boston bombing. As for the argentine press that i’m looking at right now, they’re just now mentioning the protests, but they’re nowhere near to show how serious this really is! The officialist paper Página 12 just says Maduro was proclaimed President, while the opposition’s La Nación and Clarin just mention the protests; seeing how BFFs the argentine and venezuelan governments are, the officialism wouldn’t want to talk about this, and the opposition would be a bit more careful than usual, lest they be accused of promoting violence/coup/civil war in Argentina against the argentine government ( yes, the officialism would totally make the accusation, not like it’d be a first time..)
The BBC apparently hasn’t heard of this, and the CNN’s latest news on Venezuela is the demand for a recount of the votes.
Really, IF IT WEREN’T FOR SOCIAL NETWORKS WE WOULDN’T FUCKING KNOW.
