Freedom for Venezuela


On february 12 2014 Venezuela’s students took to the streets
to protest against the profound economic and social crisis of the country They were met with a disproportionate
violent response from the government just for showing their discontent. According to a study by the Venezuelan
Observatory of violence 25.000 homicides were
committed last year in a country of fewer than thirty
million people. In 1998, the year before the current leftist regime
came to power that figure was under 5000. Over ninety percent in these murders go
unpunished The country is severely impoverished.
Staples are very hard to find. According to official records, shortage rate is around 21%. Whenevers staples are available, people
have to queue for hours to get a chance to purchase limited quantities of these products. The Venezuelan government
has tight control over currency exchange, imports, exports, and prices. According to Transparency International,
it is perceived as one of the 15 most corrupt governments in the world. The annual inflation rate is over 56%
and growing, and the national currency is constantly
being devalued. The private sector has been reduced to
virtually nothing. This is not the first time that
Venezuelans protest, but this time around things, are
different. Anti-government demonstrators, armed only with flags and posters, are
being brutally repressed and shot at with live rounds by the National Guard and heavily armed vigilante groups known
as “colectivos”. Dozens are missing, hundreds are injured, and there is an unknown but growing
number of deaths. Hundreds of students have been
imprisoned, held uncommunicated, and have been subject to severe beatings,
torture, and abuse. These human rights violations are being
dismissed by the courts without further investigation. Local TV channels provide no live
coverage of the protests, so Venezuelans have turned to social
media to spread information. The few reporters that have tried to cover
the events have been beaten, mugged, jailed or expelled by the
government. Leopoldo Lopez, one of the opposition leaders, was sent to jail and is being indicted
with charges that include terrorism, arson and criminal incitement without
proof, witnesses or a public trial. The rest of
the opposition leaders are being threatened and persecuted. The only means of communication that remain available are social networks such as Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp. The government
has censored online news outlets and blocked certain apps and features, such as Zello and Twitter images. We don’t
know how much longer will be able to communicate with the rest of the world. This is why we need your help. The world is blind to what is happening. We need you to help us recover our
freedom. The things that you take for granted,
Venezuelans are fighting to recover. We need you to help us create awareness.
We need the global community to form a network of aid and support. You can help us by sharing
our story with your family and friends. You can help us by contacting your
representatives and demanding their support for the
Venezuelan people and their fight for justice and freedom. You can help us by caring We ask you to shine a light on us
We ask you to spread the word.

  • Please have the courtesy to view this short information. The killers in Venezuela go unpunished. We are losing the populations rather rapidly ….SOS   SOS…>

  • Excelente vídeo que muestra la realidad que vive nuestro país. Debe recorrer el mundo entero. #prayforvenezuela  

  • This is probably the best video I´ve seen that portrays what we are living now in Venezuela.. That´s why I´m on Twitter all day and night, spreading the word about the truth, that is being hidden from those who watch TV, since traditional media is severely censored by the government. We are determined to win our freedom, yet we need your help, spreading the word.. Being the light! Thank you!

  • Share this video please.. We live in a Dicatorial goberment!! A goberment who is blocking ours windows to the outside world

  • Estudiantes y pueblo de venezuela atacados y masacrados por fuerzas represivas y colectivos paramilitares pro oficialistas…….    AYUDEN A QUE EL MUNDO SE ENTERE DE LA REAL VERDAD QUE TENEMOS, NO LA QUE MUESTRA EL GOBIERNO Y SUS MEDIOS…., ………

  • S.O.S VENEZUELA!! Son muchos los que sabemos que ésta es la cruel realidad que vive el país, pero el ECO MUNDIAL es muy importante, para salir, de ésta pesadilla. (Gracias por compartirlo).  Besos! ♥ desde Mbo-Venezuela.

  • Why is it the wrong people ALWAYS seem to get into power and then stay there through webs of corruption and bullying by the so-called security forces? And a question that always concerns me is this: in third world countries they do not manufacture arms, but the developed nations are always willing to sell them arms knowing, surely, that they are going to be used against their own people. We need changes and we need it HERE as well as THERE. 

  • Un agradecimiento a los gochos por su gran sacrificio de enfrentarse ante el dictador mas enmascarado de la historia. Y gracias a la persona que hizo este video.

  • The infiltration of ruling of cuba Castro´s brother and  they working to stablish a comunist sistem in Venezuela that is the whole problem Maduro´s is a puppet ot de cuban regime

  • Un video mas sesgado y parcial. Hay que ser un poco mas serio en lo que se muestra porque si no lo que se hace es una mamarrachada.
    1. Las protestas NO FUERON PACIFICAS ¿Porque no haceis un video asi sobre las protestas en el "primer mundo"?
    2. Contextualizar por favor, estamos hablando de un pais en el que la violencia está a la orden del dia. Es un acto de maldad comparar Venezuela con un pais europeo e incluso con USA. Ya que os poneis a comparar hacedlo con un pais del entorno, por ejemplo Colommbia, en el que la tasas de violencia es igual o superior.
    3. Siempre se habla de la tasa de violencia y muertes en el periodo bolivariano. Lo que nunca se dice es que SOLO HAY ESTADISTICAS FIABLES EN ESTE PERIODO. Es solo cuando entra Chavez que se empiezan a hacer estadisticas fiables. Una vez mas la compaprativa es sesgada, parcial y cruel. 
    4. Muestran imagenes de supermerdacos vacios. Es verdad que eso es cruel y que seguramente el gobierno lo este haciendo mal, pero ¿De verdad creeis que no se esta haciendo un boicot? Seguramente no será este factor toda la problematica, pero sin duda es importante.
    5. Una vez mas se dice que las protestas fueron pacificas. No lo fueron, hubo muertes por parte de los simpatizantes del gobierno.
    6. Los arrestados por la policia han sido torturados y han sufrido abusos. ¿Que pruebas adjunta? En cualquier pais del primer mundo se hacen las mismas denuncias y no se alienta un golpe de estado, que es lo que se sta haciendo con este video. En un pais como España, en dos semanas han muerto en la carcel dos presos de ETA.
    7. Dice que las televisiones progobierno no dicen nada de las protestas. NO ES VERDAD. Tampoco dicen que en Venezuela solo el 10% de las televisiones son progobierno, un 90% están en manos privadas y son muy violentas con respecto al gobierno.
    8. Dicen que han cerrado la CNN. Aunque fueron solo por unas horas, lo que no dice es que esta televisora estaba pasando imagenes falsas a sabiendas para desestabilizar al gobierno en una situación tan critica.
    9. la unica forma de comunicarte con el exterior es mediante internet, FALSO, hay televisiones privadas que emiten con normalidad, el telefono funciona… ¿PORQUE MENTIR TANTO EN TAN POCO TIEMPO?
    10. Dice que el mundo esta ciego con respecto a lo que a`psa en Venezuela. FALSO FALSO FALSO. El mundo esta ciego con respecto a lo que pasa en Guinea Ecuatorial, Zimbawe, Ruanda, Laos, etc, etc pero no con respecto a un pais que ocupa espacios en el noticiero a diario. Si a lo que se refiere es que esta ciego porque en los noticieros occidentales solo se ponen mentiras como este video, entonces si tiene razon.
    Y ya no sigo mas proque se me haria largo. Me direis que porque pase en otros paises no justifica nada, y teneis razon, no me refiero a eso. A lo que me refiero es a dos cosas:
    1. Lamentablemente para ustedes ese gobierno ha sido elegido legalmente y por mas de la mitad de la población, dejenlo trabajar y no boicoteen.
    2. Estais provocando un golpe de estado de USA, un pais que ha teñido de sangre latinoamerica y que si finalmente se da el paso, vais a ver morir a vecinos y familiares y llegado eso ya sera demasiado tarde. Después de una invasión y una guerra civil tendreis el pais destrozado y licencias a empresas norteamericanas para reconstruir vuestro pais que os dejarán endeudados por los proximos 50 años (no lo deigo por decir, leed un poco, es lo que esta pasando en Irak, es la nueva forma de hacer guerra de los USA con las empresas privadas.).

    Paz, aceptar las reglas democraticas y tomad el poder mediante elecciones, porque si lo haceis de una forma ilegal, no esperies nada bueno, de seguro os arrepentireis del resultado,

  • Waoooo.. llore.. realmente quien lo esta viviendo te dice.. que el video es la pura realidad… necesitamos libertad…

  • This sucks but many countries are like this or worse so it makes no sense to give Venezuela all this attention versus all other oppressed countries. Look at all the war-torn countries in Africa, is it fair no one is asked to speak up for them at the Oscars but all Venezuelans are asking everyone at the Oscars to defend them? I mean there is nothing substantial anybody can do, there never is. Just try and be strong over there and keep fighting for yourselves.

  • Help! in Venezuela we are surviving and resisting … The GNB is killing / torturing our students. They want to silence everyone. # SOSVENEZUELA

  • Don't look for Hollywood's notorious hypocrites to support the people of Venezuela.

    1. Sean Penn on Maduro’s ‘Proven Leadership’
    2. Oliver Stone Accuses Protesters of ‘Desire to Kill’
    3. Michael Moore Praises Chávez’s ‘Free Health & Education’
    4. Danny Glover Calls Chávez ‘Social-Champion of Democracy’

  • all communist 'revolutions" are the same- shortages for people while leaders eat steak and lobster- media is govt controlled, dissent is punished, people disappear, always ends in many DEAD HUMANS- and guess who ELECTED CHAVEZ? the same who are now without rights- without food. The other Venezuelans who could get out are in exile like the Cubanos- those here in USA who were similarly fooled by CASTRO – Pay Attention USA this is your future .Bama's vision for transformation is the same old socialist lies and promises- My apologies to the people of Venezuela, the duped, dummy voters in USA  have elected a fan of Chavez style govt — he will NOT help you

  • Todo el video es una mentira. .. realizado para desprestigiar a una Nacion Libre y Soberana..Donde realmente existe una Democracia..

  • DE AQUÍ A CUBA A LIBERAR A ESE POBRE PUEBLO DE LOS CAGALISTROSOS, NUNCA MAS LOS COMUNISTAS, JAMAS EN TODA LA AMÉRICA.

  • Very good video!.. let share the file for subtitles and people can translate in several language! Video muy bueno.. compartiendo el file de los subtitulos, otros usarios lo pueden traducir en differentes idiomas, yo por exemplo lo haria en italiano!

  • The people who started the protests did so violently. They do not believe in democracy. They have been defeated countless times at the ballot box, most recently 2 months ago.

    There are no more elections for the next 2 years so they had to do something else.

    They have been unwilling to allow their government to work. Coup d' Etats, Boss strikes and more.

    Last week I watched non stop coverage on CNN español, broadcasting only the opposition's viewpoint.

    Now polls in VZL show that these protests are less and less popular.

    These groups are funded by the US gov. NED etc.

    Please, accept democracy and stop trying to overthrow your government.

  • Please friends of the free World, share this video 
    Por favor amigos del mundo libre, compartan este video

  • People who say that this video is a lie are not informed.  I use to live in Venezuela, almost 10 years, during the Glory years.  Venezuela is a beautiful country.  It has the 4 seasons on its 4 corners.  They are beautiful people.  Their problem is the Government that Chavez ruined and aligned with communism.  Everyone after him, has done no better.  We need to PRAY for these people.

  • There shouldn’t be any dictatorship existing in our present time. Venezuela needs to be free and democratic again.
    #SOSVENEZUELA #PRAYFORVENEZUELA 

  • Triste todo lo que refleja esta película preparada y mal intencionada, si hay problemas en Venezuela, causada por un grupo de disociados, vende patria, sucios y mentirosos, protestando de manera violenta, destruyendo bienes públicos, dañando todo lo que ven al pasar sin importar quien es el dueño, hasta quemando árboles , señores esta no es la manera de actuar…PRESOS TODOS!..Hasta los disociados que estan en el exterior, bello mirando los toros desde la barrera, vengan y naden con nosotros a ver si todo lo que muestran es cierto.

  • I am a venezuelan overseas and I will share this with the world as much as possible! PLEASE SHARE IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY TOO! Thanks!

  • Distucutir y hacer razonar a estos imbeciles quienes hacen llamar chavista es una perdida de tiempo, ellos no comprende que el gobierno le tiene su precio (una lata de sardina,harina de mala calidad y un paquete de arroz) ESE ES SU VALOR REAL.. No es saludable para un ser pensante,entablar dialogo con alguien que no  se respete asi mismo.

  • que se metan los gringos si eso quieren , que les den pañales , teles y autos por recursos naturales xdd y en unos años mas estaran peleando contra ellos para que dejen sus recursos xd, pero si llegan a meterse no los moveran con nada , igual que aca en chile , el cobre y muchos recursos naturales ya no son chilenos.

  • Es parte de la realidad que estamos sufriendo en Vzla,y digo parte,porque el régimen entorpece labor de medios internacionales para realizar su trabajo.Los ntros están censurados y amenazados.Desconocemos cuántas atrocidades mas está cometiendo régimen.SOS.VZLA

  • What a great short video that shows the rude truth about Venezuelan's fight for real freedom, PEOPLE OF THIS WORLD LET'S HELP THIS COUNTRY TO WIN THIS FIGHT AGAINST OPRESORS AND DICTATORS…..DO NOT  LETF THEM ALONE

  • Muy buen trabajo. Apoyos como estos serán los que sirven para llevarlos a prisión cuando esta pesadilla termine, porque… TERMINARÀ

  • Happens when you go along the path of Totalitarianism. The communist regime has a lot to answer for. The world is not blind. The leftists and communists are very popular with the press. Our own country is going through this right with a muzzle being put on Independent news organizations. Our Govt. is trying to pass a bill regulating any criticisms of our Administration. That is the beginning of the end. America has given up any right to be the defender of Democracy in the world.

  • Interesting video that has a slight flavor of propaganda. But then again…these commie dictatorships are difficult to converse with, so I understand. We will have to wait and see what the people who control the planet decide to do about this issue. Meanwhile, good luck, guys.

  • I'M WITH VENEZUELA, EVEN DO THE PRESIDENTS OF LATINAMERICA AND INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY OF THE NATIONS GIVEN THE BACK TO VENEZUELANS, THAT'S WHY MADURO AND THE CASTRO-COMMUNISTAS ARE DOING A GENOCIDE IN VENEZUELAN, GOD BLESS YOU VENEZUELA

  • I cant go to the school now, the streets are now blocked by the National Guard and walls made of trash. I always lived here. Im just 16 years old but im not a fool.
    I dont think that this goverment is the best option to our country.

    I am Carlos Vilera, and i live in Guayana city, Bolivar State.

  • Spred the world! Be the voice of Venezuela! pray for Venezuela! 
    From the people of Brazil, with love! (not in the name of our corrupt and comunist government!)

  • Sounds like I am going to have to put on my suit one more time against these fracking communist bastards….but Venezuelan must never forget this situation…EVER….or it will be repeated..here is where the old Spaniard saying that goes "no peace with misery" and I would translate that to "No peace or held enemy alive"  ALL MUST DIE 

  • As a Venezuelan -American , who loves my Country , I plea   you to pass this on to your English speaking friends , or any other language, besides Spanish and to spread this terrible situation …
    .Our government , is heavily armed, and supported by Castro-Cuban forces like "The Black Bees" , and" Tupamaros ", to kill our students, but the whole world needs to know that ….

     
     
    ..Please call your Representative , and ask to help SOS for Venezuela Proposition 488..Than you , and God Bless..

  • The governments of the world don't give a damn about the Venezuelan people, only about the oil that the tyrannic Venezuelan government ships, especially to the US. It's all about business. The government makes us poor, we work for peanuts (minimum wage is $40 a month), and it sells the oil we pump to the US, China, and others at skyhigh prices. We are slaves of our own country. But you, as an individual, can help us, just by spreading the word. Somehow, tyrannic governments care about their reputation.

  • In case you wonder what those numbers written in their arms mean… It's their number in line to buy groceries…

  • Fight back or die you will never take your county back without killing your enemies… Sharing this video is a good start but you must fight your battles…. Give me liberty of give me death… 

  • support venezuela here https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/just-like-america-did-it-in-1865-venezuela-is-doing-it-in-2014/x/6969070

  • Que tontería de métodos son estos? Una campaña de SOS no tiene la capacidad de cambiar nada. Protestantes fácilmente pueden conseguir simpatía, pero cuando de apoyo de trata las cosas son mucho más difíciles. Y la manera de esta campaña es muy dañina cuando no se es cuidadoso, ya está empezando a ignorarse porque cuando el New York Times publica que de 370 municipios, se protesta en 13 y que las pruebas de tortura y violaciones de derechos humanos son testimoniales, hace difícil llegar a más allá de símplemente lograr simpatía e incluso es peligroso porque cuando las acusaciones no pueden ser probadas mas allá de una duda razonable son desechadas permanentemente de audiencia internacional. Lo siento mucho pero dándole compartir no ayuda en lo absoluto. El mundo no cambia a punta de likes o retweets. Las protestas comenzaron como una oportunidad pero parece que esa oportunidad se desperdició.

  • If only the video stayed on point highlighting the problems that are undeniably real instead of making something that seems like a movie trailer this wouldn't be so insulting. "What you take for granted we're fighting to get…" That just takes things to a stupid level… No wonder all international audiences have dismissed this case. We could've solved the problems if it hadn't turned into a campaign to smear the government and justify a regime change… Because of that this entire thing has been a wasted opportunity we can't get back. FUCK

  • Thanks so much for pointing out and informing the world bout the situation in Venezuela. Long live to a FREE VENEZUELA. Students are HEROES! Maduro's regime is FASCIST

  • Today's media is done this way..like a movie trailer! It catches the eye of the audience. The only statement I have to disagree to is the alleged use of live rounds against the people. While it is true in some cases..most of the time they use rubber rounds and anti riot equipment, which is used in a disproportional and brutal way nevertheless.

  • Todo el mundo sabe que en Venezuela estamos pasando por un momento largo y de muy mal gusto para mas del 90% de lo venezolanos y sabemos que los Estados Unidos es la 1era potencia del mundo que controla todos los gobierno y cuando a este no le ve el provecho los saca del su camino como es el caso de los gobiernos de: Augusto Pinochet, Manuel Antonio Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama Bin Laden, Muamar Gadafi y otros mas, ahora mi pregunta es ¿sera que? Hugo Chavez Fria y Nicolas Maduro seran mas fuerte que los gobiernos antes nombrados o sera que les esta sacando mas del provecho que nos imaginamos

  • hoy 19 abril de 2017 a las 11 horas informo, HEMOS VUELTO A JODER A LA OPOSICION APATRIDA ;Y AL IMPERIO GRINGO:EDGARDDT:

  • VENEZUELA DESHECHA EN SOZIALISMO..NO SE ZPUEDE DIALOGAR CON LOS TIRANOS..A LOS SÀTRAPAS SE LOS DERRIBA..YA ESTÈN EN VENEZUELA O EN ESPAÑA..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6gDP9tuEvw&list=RDdmrslUim-tQ&index=19
