Hi everybody!!! Finally after 5 days of blackout I can write again. I wrote this for Facebook, but I guess more people will read it here. We survived 5 days with no power, no telefones, no hospitals, no trains, no gas, no gasoline, etc… Our preparation of years made it a little softer for us in the rural zones.
On March5th I wrote this (before the blackout):
Do you know what’s deeply exhausting?..
that we venezuelans not only have had to put up with 20 years of destruction in our country, persecution, human rights violation, economic disaster en more from the Chavez and Maduro regimens. But now we also have to put up with explaning every single day how we DO know what´s going on in here (because we actualy LIVE it), how it´s not or has it ever been the product of "US blockades (until this past month, the only sanctions that have ever happened here are personal ones aganist certain individuals who have benn investigaded internationally for drug trafficking, corruption, crimes against humanity and more), how this is not about left aganist right (because no matter what your politics are, killing and torturingn people should be condemend), how we are not beeing nieve about wanting the US and othrt countries to intervene (because yes, we DO now our history and YES, we prefer the US and other powers getting involved instead of continuing to have Russia, China, Cuba, Iran and other “lovely” countries such has does, leeching off our resourses, controlling our miltary, and manipulating our situation like they have been doing for years now; plus, Maduro continuing to decimate our population in a humanitarian crisis of a level this continent has never seen).
I´m beyond exhausted after watching Venezuelans beein butchered in the streets, of having to explain that we are not right-winging, Trump-loveing, fascist-wanting, delusional war mongers. We are the people of Venezuela, who have suffered under brutality of a regime that does not stutter when lying, toruring,killing, maiming, burning aid, starving or stealing. We deserve better from people all over the world but specially from the US, where I understand things are not peachy, but where you still have your basic freedoms and so much more that allow you to get acces to sources like Amnesty International and other agencies that have reported for years on the true nature of the brutality of the narcodictariorship in Venezuela. Give us a break here! Imagine telling the Tutsis they were beeing duped about the Hutus real intentions. Or telling the Jews in nazi Germany not to accept help from US because “they didn´t really mean well”. Or telling the Bosnian muslims that they really should consider resolving matters inwardly with “elections”. Please, please, please educate people around you. Please support us by getting people of their idealogical high horse by exposing them to the hard truths of what´s going on in Venezuela in the worse time ever in our history and spread messages such as this.
Please in the name of the people of Venezuela, spread this message.
All media is blocked, this is the only way we can tell the world what is happening, this is a well planed genocide executed by a NARCODELINQUENT REGIME.
