It was Venezuela’s bloodiest day to date since the protests against the Maduro regime started nearly four months ago. In an illegal attempt to install a Cuba-style dictatorship, the Castro regime’s puppet dictator, Nicolas Maduro, held a fraudulent Constituent Assembly vote to change the country’s constitution and install himself as dictator-for-life like his masters in Havana.

Despite threats by the regime to fire government employees and take away government assistance from others if they did not vote in the illegal election, voter turnout was dismal. Many more protestors were seen on the streets on Sunday than actual voters, which led the Castro-controlled regime to respond with violent repression. At last count, at least 14 protesters were murdered in the streets of Venezuela yesterday, making it Venezuela’s bloodiest day in recent history.

Nevertheless, the miserable voter turnout yesterday and the violent repression carried out will not stop the Maduro regime from moving forward with their installation of a dictatorship. The vote tallies and outcomes were decided in Havana weeks ago by the true rulers of Venezuela, the Castro dictatorship.

14 Killed as Maduro Makes Venezuela’s Dictatorship Official

Venezuelan strongman Nicolás Maduro formally began the process to install himself as Venezuela’s dictator today. It began at 6 AM, when Maduro and his wife cast their vote in a constituent election which he summoned despite its illegality and despite widespread condemnation from the international community. Nevertheless, members of Venezuela’s resistance were staging protests against, which the regime had banned during several days, as early as 4 AM.

Under Maduro’s orders, Venezuela’s security forces decided to make protesters pay with their blood for their audacity in defending their own liberty. At 9 PM Caracas time, at least 14 people had been murdered, a number of deadly victims not seen in a single day since the start of the current wave of protests over three months ago.
