Do you Know what is happening in Venezuela? This is what is happening. This is what has been happening during a week. The students have been protesting in a pacific way against the repressive and tyrant government that we have since 1999 (yes, 15 years living with insecurity, food and medicine shortages, deprivation of liberty, and media blackout) and what is the police and the army doing? Beating us, shooting us, and recently some students were condemned to jail for 13 years!! For what crime? For claiming justice and democracy. Please, share this post, the world needs to know.
He estado muy ausente, sí, pero de verdad la situación en Venezuela empeora y mi día a día se ha vuelto más difícil. El 25 de Septiembre comienzo la universidad de nuevo, solo habíamos visto 1 mes y medio del semestre antes del paro y ahora debemos recuperar mas de dos meses perdidos en 6 semanas, lo que es una total locura, obviamente muchas materias nos la van a retirar porque es imposible terminarlas en tan poco tiempo. En fin, aún me preparo leyendo anatomía y tomando apuntes en casa, he aquí otra foto.
I take this moment to tell what is happening in Venezuela.
This country has been suffering almost 20 years in a political regime that at the beginning promised a lot to its people, but that in fact did not fulfill anything.
Since the 4th of this month students from all over the country and political leaders have taken to the streets demanding their rights as Venezuelan citizens.
The regime of President Maduro is not far from becoming a dictatorship, this regime has taken what was once a prosperous country to the bottom of the abyss, has turned it into a country with one of the largest inflations that exists, its capital ( Caracas) is one of the most dangerous cities in the world, you can not go out without being robbed, the media show nothing of the reality of what is happening, it is an oppressive government regime, have committed violations to The human rights of its citizens in the last days, its constitution has been violated, police officers violently repress the demonstrations.
Unfortunately, on March 5, police forces raided the premises of a state university, which had students inside, of that confrontation left 14 wounded: 3 by bullets and 11 by pellets. At the end of the day the number of injured was 21 students from the university.
But not only that, it is dawn confirms the death of a student of 19 years of age, by a shot to the heart, that was manifesting.
I want to clarify that you are peaceful demonstrations, these students and leaders opposed to the regime have been victims of violence by the police, these people are not armed, they have nothing to defend themselves with.
The reason I tell this is because the international community does not know or know very little about the real situation that Venezuela is living, we ask for support so that the world knows what happens because the media do not tell it, we tell its citizens By means of the networks.
The Venezuelan people are already tired of queues, inflation, scarcity, insecurity. The Venezuelan people want peace, they want their country to return to being what it was, it wants the tyrannical resignation and its cabinet, it wants a change, it wants a true democracy, but above all it wants support.

Venezuela's indigenous people leave jungles homes to try survive on the city streets of Brazil
Hundreds of indigenous Warao people from the Orinoco Delta have left Venezuela and are now trying their luck on the gritty streets of Manaus – Brazil’s Amazonian metropolis – where they live in derelict buildings and tent camps and are forced to make a living by begging from passing motorists.
Many have made the long bus journey from northeastern Venezuela to Manaus, a city of two million people where local authorities are scrambling to help them find shelter, food and medicine. “Everything is gone in Venezuela,” said Abel Calderon, a 32-year-old Warao who is acting as spokesman for the impromptu community now living under tarps, tents and other makeshift lodgings around the city, some of them under a highway overpass.
Local authorities have declared a social emergency and called for support from the federal and state governments for what they have called a “humanitarian crisis”. Many Venezuelans have been deported after having crossed the border due to concerns about vagrancy and begging, local media reported, while local hospitals and public services have been put under strain.
Calderon says the Warao chose Manaus because it was the closest city in Brazil where they could look for work or assistance from local authorities. So far, city officials have helped with food and medicine while also asking Brazil’s federal police force to accelerate documentation that can help the Warao find jobs or formally register with social welfare programmes.
The Warao faced hunger and hardship in their villages along Venezuela’s Caribbean coast. They have traditionally used their fishing skills to survive – for nourishment, for barter or by selling the fish for cash. But Venezuela’s economic and political instability mean people can’t afford to buy their fish, and there is nothing in the shops to barter them against.
Calderon said he wants to stay in Brazil, saddened by the hardship and increasingly stark reality in Venezuela, where the economic woes and mounting unrest in recent weeks has led to dozens of deaths in political protests. “It’s sad in Venezuela,” he says. “There everything is finished. Here we could work and stay.”
First of all, sorry for my bad English, this is being written quickly. I write this post on this network because most Tumblr users are foreign-Americans, Europeans, and others- PLEASE HELP SPREAD. VENEZUELA My country is a disaster, the national police and violent groups by government lash students. At this time I am told that many are on the streets, hiding under cars, or refugees in some buildings. The tension we live is indescribable. At the time we go around complaining of 6 dead and 200 prisoners, most students. This is not a civil war, it is a slaughter against students demanding a better future.
The government is the one who gives the orders of attacking students # SOSVENEZUELA
For years, my country has been violayed in truly unfair ways. But now, with our old president (who started it all) dead, and a new, worse one in rule, students in Venezuela are rising and creating a revolution for peace against the corrupt government.
The government has shut down any social networks, so there’s no contact whatsoever. This video explains it even better.
WE NEED YOUR HELP. SPREAD THE WORD. SHARE THIS POST. FOR PEACE. FOR FREEDOM. FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.
ENOUGH BLOOD HAS BEEN SPILLED.
ENOUGH TEARS HAVE BEEN SHED.
