Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans protest against Cuba’s puppet dictatorship

It was a day of both courage and terror in Venezuela yesterday. Hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans poured into the streets to protest the Cuban puppet dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro. The planned protest was dubbed “The Mother of All Protests,” and its size and magnitude earned that title.

Unfortunately, the Venezuelan regime responded to the demonstrations calling for the end of tyranny with its usual violence and Castro-inspired repression. Along with the tear gas and terrorizing of peaceful protestors, two young Venezuelans, a 17-year-old boy and a 23-year-old young lady, lost their lives yesterday when they were both shot in the head by members of Maduro’s motorcycle goon squads.

The Venezuelan people today are left with only two options: Either they continue their resistance to tyranny and regain their freedom, or they give up and become a colony of Cuba and slaves of the Castro regime. The choice is that stark and both are painful, but only one leads to freedom.

Venezuela takes to the streets in nonviolent protest, Maduro’s force murder two youths

Bravery and villainy in Venezuela

Venezuela’s downward spiral to totalitarianism continues but millions of Venezuelans are doing all they can to resist it. Hundreds of thousands took to the streets today in Venezuela in what was described as “the mother of all protests.” Some have been killed today for standing up nonviolently for freedom and the rule of law there. A 17-year-old boy and a 23-year-old woman died after both being shot in head this past Wednesday. There names are Carlos Moreno and Paola Andreina Ramírez Gómez. This pattern can be traced back over three years.

Paola Ramírez and Carlos Moreno both shot in the head today in Venezuela

The Maduro regime has used terror gunning down students many of them shot in the head, beginning on February 12, 2014 with Bassil Alejandro Dacosta, age 24. A day earlier on social media he declared: “Gentlemen, he who is here will go out tomorrow to find a better future.” One of the young students who carried Bassil off Robert Redman, age 28, reported later that day over twitter: “Today I was hit with a rock in the back, a helmet in my nose. I swallowed tear-gas, Carried the kid who died, and what did you do?” That same day he was also gunned down by Maduro’s colectivos, working in concert with his security forces, and murdered. The killings have continued.

  1. And to think this could all have been avoided if the people had only acted sensibly at the beginning,. Same goes for Cuba, of course. “The people know best” my ass.
