If they ask you how is it going in Venezuela…

A few days ago, the Venezuelan dictatorship hastily installed a Constituent Assembly to rule the country as a classic dictatorship of the proletariat. They got this done through a colossal electoral fraud, under the pressured steamed by four months of internal turmoil, US government sanctions to infamous public officers and the disavowal of roughly all of Latin America and Western Europe. Meanwhile, Venezuelans still struggle to survive or die in the streets defending their right to have a future and to enjoy freedom.

A significant part of those 124 killed by the weapons of the resentment promoted by Chavismo were kids between 14 and 17 years old. I introduce you to Neomar Lander, one of those boys assassinated by hate. As many of his peers, he didn’t know anything different than Chavismo but, still, he believed in the same thing that most of us believe in: Liberty.



GUERRA MEDIÁTICA I: “Not even with blood will change happen in Venezuela.”

“Not even with blood will change happen in Venezuela.”

These are the words of Diosdado Cabello, one of the main military leaders of the Venezuelan Chavist dictatorship. His speeches reflect the historical trademark of Chavismo: violence, cynicism, and disrespect towards democratic institutions. He has his hands stained with the blood of hundreds of injured and dozens of fatal victims during the law enforcement repression against demonstrators that only want to enjoy the most basic human rights. Moreover, he hates elections, free speech, he has disdain for democracy and civilian power, and he hates everything that could compromise his drug ventures.

This is the enemy that my people is facing right now: cruel, determined, merciless. Showing any kind of sympathy for such a despicable individual  could be equal to sitting, side by side, with any of the tyrants that had spread misery, death and unhappiness in our world through history.

Chavists say that the world is engaged in a “Media War” -Guerra Mediática- against their Revolution when, mostly, the media is just doing what it is supposed to do, to inform. The real “Media War”, in my humble opinion, is the one promoted in the government speech where threats, insults, coercion, infused with fear and blatant lies against those who defend democracy are part of Venezuelan folks’ daily life.

This is my little contribution to the fight that my brothers are waging against the dictatorship for a better future for all Venezuelans and for the truth. I know it isn’t sufficient given all the sacrifices they are making for my Homeland. Sincerely, I think it will never be enough.

God bless those who stand for Democracy and for the Republic!
