VENEZUELA. Caracas. April 6, 2017. A demonstrator protects himself after a tear gas canister fired by police riot crashed against his skateboard during a protest. Tens of thousands of demonstrators shut down Venezuela’s capital on Thursday, blocking the city’s main artery to protest what they call an attempted coup by the socialist administration.

Mount Roraima - Venezuela 

Mount Roraima is situated on the border, between Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil. With over 70% of the mountain situated in Venezuela’s Canaima National Park, Mount Roraima is the tallest table-top plateau in the area. It is made of sandstone, and features a number of unique species of flora. Due to the flat surface of the mountain, and the areas heavy rainfall, waterfalls are often appear in various locations around the plateau. The summit itself covers an area of  31 km2.

And again, the government of Venezuela is proving this is not other thing than dictatorship.

Today the president, Maduro, ordered the cable providers of our country to take CNN in Spanish off air. This is particularly tragic because CNN was pretty much one of the last channels to expose this government —and actually care about venezuela—, since it’s an international channel and the national ones are mostly silenced.

Apparently it was taken down for running some “fake” news about the vice-president, Tarek el Aissami, exposing him as a drug trafficker —which we all know it’s true.

I can’t say I’m surprised, CNN made clear it’s position against this government, it was only a matter of time.

Let the world know:

At least three people have been killed and hundreds injured in Venezuela as street battles erupted alongside a mass anti-government demonstration that the opposition billed as “the mother of all marches”.

Unknown woman with country’s flag draped around her neck, steps out of the smoke and in front of one of the hulking National Guard trucks, stopping them in their tracks. Unfazed by a nearby explosion, she placed her hands on the vehicle’s front fender.

As the woman stood before the truck, a voice on a loudspeaker barked out. A man popped out of a turret atop the truck and tossed an object towards the woman, who stepped calmly out of its way. It skittered down the street.
Then the truck began backing up. Instead of walking away, the woman followed it.

Courage, bravery, not fear.

Example: Oh you and your cousin went to school with Enrique? He and I grew up on the same street! The world is a black bean, and we live in the white part.
