Venezuelan students say: “Venezuela si, Castro no!”

 

ABC Spain sums up the demands of Venezuelan student demonstrators in one concise article.

It seems that the students deserve a grade of A plus for perceiving the true source of their their country's rapid descent into poverty and absolute repression.

They know all too well that all the repressive strings in Caracastan are being pulled from Havana, and that Venezuela needs to free itself once and for all from the Castro Dynasty .

Venezuelan students demand the expulsion of "Cuban communists"

Venezuelan students declared this Sunday that they will not enter a dialogue with their government until it meets its demands.  At the top of their list of demands stand these two: 1. "the expulsion of all Cuban communists"; 2.  the release of all who have been detained during recent demonstrations and the disarmament of pro-government mobs.

Their declaration states: "We can't negotiate with those who have tortured and sexually abused our fellow students.  It's impossible to dialogue with murderers.  It's impossible to dialogue with those who protect irregular mobs who open fire in residential neighborhoods."

"This is why we will keep staging demonstrations until they meet our demands," the students underscored, warning the government that "our will to be free is adamant, and the more the government resorts to repression, the more that the will to be reborn will strengthen in our country."

The first grievance on the students' list is the presence of  "foreign military forces in Venezuela,"  who are referred to as "mercenaries who attack us in a vile and savage way." The students go further,  asserting that "the objective of these mercenaries is to enslave us."

"We will defend to the death the flags we have been flying in our demonstrations," say the students.

"It is essential that we defend the sovereignty of Venezuela and expel the Cuban communists who have been takingn over our government and the armed forces," says they continue, adding: "their interference in our affairs makes our blood boil."

In addition, the dissenting students proclaimed that "the government's policy of impoverishing all citizens is unacceptable."

"Enough (Basta) with the humiliation of all Venezuelans and with all the attempts to reduce them to a subsistence level."
