What I am about to say here is strictly my opinion.
Venezuela is going through difficult days and that means that a lot of people do not have enough to eat. The last presidential election was very close but Hugo Chavez´chosen successor, Nicolas Maduro won
I have personal opinions about the government and disagreements, or puzzled questions that are not very relevant about policies that they have followed as I am not a citizen of Venezuela though Ive been an unreformed though sometimes hard to label leftist for a long long time.
I know about Venezuelan history especially since the rise of the late President Hugo Chavez, There is an opposition that has been striving with the aid and comfort of the government of my country to remove Venezuela´s government by any means whatever.
As far as I can gather Venezuelans are divided roughly 1/3 adoring the memory of HugoChavez, and supporting the current lawfully elected president, a roughly equal number who are against the government, some violently and also with such intensity that they are willing to resort to violence. Many of these nurse a racial arrogance towards the majority of the people of their own country.t anti government demonstrations that shook Venezuela violenthor ofajority of their countrymen. Roughly another third either vacillate, have no opinion, or are too busy trying to stay alive .
One of the opposition´s leaders, Leopoldo Lopez shown is this picture leading a violent anti government demonstration in 2002 , is in jail awaiting trial for allegedly being the intellectual author of violent demonstrations that shook Venezuela during the months of February to March in which 40 people, civilians on both sides and police lost their lives .There is anternational campaign to intimidate the Venezuelan government into releasing Leopoldo and the governiment is quite adamant that it can prove its case and is intent on putting Leopoldo on trial. Another opposition leader faces accusations of plotting inside the United Statees to murder the president of her country.If the er government has evidence of this it´s about as serious as things can get.
Now the Congress of the United States is calling for sanctions against Venezuela due to purported concern over the rights of Venezuelans to demonstrate. Pointedly the resolution does not use the word ¨peacefully.¨ The irony here is overwhelming.
Anyway what I want to say to my government is ¨Hands off Venezuela.¨ Let the Venezuelan people deal with their problems and differences and let their judicial process do its work.
