Week 2 of the dictatorship: notching up the repression

I will be brief tonight. It will be all about how repression increases.

That is right, watch the video, now the regime drops over protesters tear gas cans, which may kill someone if hit directly. Think about that for a second. This is material for The Hague, of the best quality.

But that is not all what we saw today.

The march never had a chance to start, it was savagely attacked during the speeches.

The attacks on stray protesters seemed to acquire a new virulence as to the videos that flood Twitter.

I had a medical treatment for my SO and I had to drive across blocked streets, walls of Nazional Guards looking weirdly at me, garbage bags burning, etc. And in the end we could not make it because the complex where we were going had been gassed! And they closed the doors in a hurry. At least we were warned so we could go try to go back through the labyrinth of the battle field left over.

My cleaning lady told me that she took a wrong turn this afternoon and was gassed with her kid who had trouble breathing. Since she does not use Internet and since there is TV black out on any of the protests, she was blissfully unaware of what is going on in the country until reality got to her. Let me just say that I never her her as anti chavista as I saw her today. She was livid in her voice.


On a totally unrelated subject I have started writing in French if any one is interested.

    Can you hear the people sing, ...

  3. How long until the regime fires real guns into protestors and then pretends they condem it and will punish it?

  4. Not a fan of the self centered Trump but wish he would throw a tantrum at Maduro and his regime. State publically to the regime that the next time they make up the rediculous accusing that the USA is behind the protests that the USA will show them what interference is. That would shut up the regime. Except still not sure USA govt isn't proping up the regime to benefit the rich USA bond holders.

  5. OMG USA congressman are talking about helping Venezuela such that it does not default on bonds using the excuse this would result in Russia's oil giant getting a foothold in USA due to Citgo as collateral against loan. Why is the media so blind or controlled they don't see the USA is propping up the regime so the rich USA bond holders can legally steal billions.
