The World Needs To Speak Out Against Inhumanity In Venezuela

Sadly, as things deteriorate daily in Venezuela [for the freedom yearning people of Venezuela - who are under the thumb of their oppressive socialist president/dictator, Nicolas Maduro], demonstrated by the dictator's recent political prisoning of two opposition leaders, Leopoldo Lopez and Antonio LedezmaI repeat this post from a little over 3 months ago-published on April 25, 2017.


Opposition leaders imprisoned by Venezuela dictator Nicolas Maduro
The World Needs To Speak Out Against Inhumanity in Venezuela:

Hat Tip:  My Facebook friend, Liss Kron, an American great patriot and human rights advocate who was born in [and loves] Venezuela. At the end of this post I have a request from Liss Kron as she put on her Facebook page. 

From February and then updated in May of 2014 I posted on 'The Tales': "Human Rights Violations Intensify In Venezuela"Things have not gotten better for the people of Venezuela since I wrote that post and indeed they may have gotten even worse under the dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro.  

Pro Democracy protests in Venezuela on Oct. 26, 2016
Here are just a few of the headlines these last few years that are very upsetting for all supporting freedom for the people of Venezuela: 

Feb. 27, 2015 - Miami Herald:  "On Senate floor, Marco Rubio blasts 'horrifying, human-rights catastrophe that is Venezuela"

Nov. 1, 2016 -Miami Herald:  "Venezuela’s Maduro destroying last vestiges of democracy"

Jan. 12, 2017 - VOA News:  "Venezuela Arrests Anti-Maduro Politicians in Sweep"

March 18, 2017 - PJ Media:  "Venezuela Responds to Bread Shortage ... By Arresting Bakers and Seizing Bakeries"

April 21, 2017 - France 24:  "Three Weeks of Violence in Venezuela"  [which has claimed 20 lives]

April 21, 2017 - Miami Herald:  "Venezuela’s Maduro is rightly blamed for deaths of anti-government protesters"

April 22, 2017 - Euro News:  "Silent March [in Caracas] For People Killed In Venezuela Protests"
Silent peaceful march in Caracas, Venezuela On April 20
I have done many posts in the past years about the immoral 'deafening' silence in the world [especially from world and religious leaders] about the tragedy Christians are facing from the Islamic extremists -burning of churches, violence against Christians, etc., especially in the Middle East and Africa.  I now sadly see this same silence in wake of the inhumanity the Venezuelan people are facing.  I am hoping, on both fronts, it ends.  I criticized president Obama numerous times about not speaking out, and now I am asking and hoping president Trump will soon speak out for the people of Venezuela.  I am also asking all other world leaders and religious leaders to speak out.

Liss Kron, shared this message on her Facebook page: "I want to invite my fellow Americans to write our senators and congressmen to put pressure on the Venezuelan government to allow our constitutional freedom. There are many ways Congress can put pressure on the Venezuelan dictator. An oil embargo is the most effective. We finance a dictator who takes freedom in our hemisphere when we buy oil from Venezuela. Venezuela is one of the largest suppliers of oil to the United States. Venezuelan’s dictator uses the money from the sale of the country’s oil to finance his totalitarianism. The United States has always been a leader in the free world. This country has always promoted and pressured dictators who are enemies of US interests. This country has always stood for those who are being killed by dictators. The Venezuelan people are desperate. They are hungry, for there are shortages. There is also a shortage of medicine. People are losing their lives because there is no medicine to treat them. The dictator and his police are killing people to intimidate the population into submission. Please write your congressman and president Trump and ask them to take action against this brutal dictator."

Liss asked me to share her page to help the Venezuela people if you can:  Helping Venezuela.com

Let us be silent no more.  May God Bless the Venezuelan people.

These are really popular places in the city for private events for corporations like us. It can be hard to find the right event venue for big events. The right size, that is flexible fits well. Thanks to you.
