For freedom

For freedom

I have only words of encouragement and admiration for the millions of Venezuelans currently fighting for their freedom. There is no way of knowing for certain how the crisis in Venezuela will end, but I am quite sure I know who is holding the weapons and committing the murders. And I also know who has been in the resistance there, for 20 years now.

Venezuela’s ‘Usurper’

Nicolás Maduro’s lack of legitimacy lies at the very heart of the Venezuelan crisis. Why isn’t he the rightful president of the country? Well, for starters, the two elections he won (in 2013 and 2018) were fraudulent. On top of that, he has “killed hundreds of young people in the streets,” according to his former intelligence chief, Hugo Carvajal, and has used repression to crush his people and hold on to power. It’s no wonder Venezuelans call him “the usurper.”
