    Venezuela;s opposition-led National Assembly has voted to begin impeachment proceedings against President Nicolas Maduro for violating democracy, on the eve of massive protests expected across the embattled nation.

    Mr Maduro's government has dismissed the move as meaningless, and in practice the step is likely to prove purely symbolic.

    But it is yet another sign of the turmoil in Venezuela - a country with the world's largest oil reserves, and yet a place where queues stretch for hours for basic foodstuffs, and animals in zoos are killed by hungry locals.

    Maduro’s mob assaulting the National Assembly session.

    Notwithstanding the mob assault the National Assembly decided that Maduro perpetrated a coup and voted a resolution that: Requested intervention of international organizations, and that Maduro shall be impeached for violations of the constitution.

    Chavez really made a mess out of a rich, rich country. But they voted for the jerk and now that the populist policies that persuaded the masses are dead, the man that took up the baton is now caught out holding the stick. Now he and the people will pay the price of the foolishness.

    Failure in Venezuela talks could lead to 'bloodshed': Vatican envoy

    Buenos Aires (AFP) - If upcoming Vatican-backed talks between Venezuela's bitterly antagonistic government and opposition fail, the result could well be "bloodshed," a papal envoy warned Saturday.

    "If one delegation or the other ends the dialogue, it's not the pope but the Venezuelan people who will lose, because the path then could truly be one of blood," Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli told the Argentine daily La Nacion in Rome, after visiting Caracas.

    Both sides are due to start talks next Friday aimed at finding some way to resolve Venezuela's deepening political and economic crisis.

    The stakes are high for their oil-dependent nation, which is suffering a scarcity of food and basic goods, and which its unpopular President Nicolas Maduro has increasingly put under the control of his loyal military.

    The Venezuela opposition should make aware that when the lefty government agree to dialog, what they want is to gain time and remain in power. Very rarely they willingly give up power. If the army give its support to the regime, it would be a bloodshed.

    Franklin Brito: A Martyr for Liberty and Human Rights in Venezuela
    Notes from the Cuban Exile Quarter: Franklin Brito: A Martyr for Liberty and Human Rights in Venezuela

    "I’ve learned of the death of hunger striker Franklin Brito. It appears that Hugo Chavez now has his own Orlando Zapata" - Yoani Sanchez, August 31, 2010 on twitter


    Franklin Brito (September 5, 1960 – August 30, 2010)

    Posted by John Suarez
    August 30, 2016

    Hunger strikes are the ultimate recourse in the arsenal of non-violent resistance, and over the years around the world it has succeeded at times but in places like Cuba, Ireland, and six years ago in Venezuela a human being died on hunger strike.

    In Cuba the names of Pedro Luis Boitel, Orlando Zapata Tamayo and Wilman Villar Mendoza are remembered as is Bobby Sands of Northern Ireland (who the Cuban dictatorship built a memorial to in Cuba) and on August 30, 2010 Venezuela's Franklin Brito joined this select grouping that demonstrated the ultimate price when engaging in a hunger strike.

    Franklin Brito was a farmer and a biologist whose land was expropriated by Hugo Chavez in 2000 according to CNN. Other news agencies place the date of expropriation anywhere between 2003 and 2004. He exhausted every recourse and was driven to the final option: the hunger strike in 2005. A chronicle of Brito's odyssey is available in Spanish on Wikipedia. In the video below taken three months prior to his death the hunger striker describes his condition and his struggle for justice:...

    Carlos Eire said:-"Guillermo Fariñas is but one of many hunger strikers who have taken on the corrupt and abusive Castro regime.

    It should come as no surprise to anyone that the Castro colony of Caracastan has also had its hunger strikers, and that some have taken their protest to the bitter end.

    Here is one such hunger striker, who could be regarded as a victim of exported Castroism."

    How ‘food apartheid’ is punishing some Venezuelans
    https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...=.c3d08fca9345

    Venezuelan citizens line up to buy food at a store in Caracas on Nov. 30. (Ueslei Marcelino/Reuters)

    CARACAS, Venezuela — With food riots breaking out and supermarket shelves woefully bare, the government of embattled President Nicolás Maduro launched a new food distribution system in April promising to deliver subsidized groceries to every household in need.

    Maduro called the new system “CLAPs” (Local Committees of Supply and Production). The name might be fitting, because those who don’t applaud his government haven’t been getting anything to eat.

    Maduro told Venezuelans that the CLAP system would alleviate chronic scarcities and the “economic war” against his government he says is being waged by opposition leaders, business owners and the street-level black market vendors known as “bachaqueros.” The CLAPs would go door to door in Venezuela’s poorest communities selling bags of groceries at huge discounts.

    Instead, critics say the system has devolved into a kind of “food apartheid” meant to punish those who oppose Maduro.

    Maduro regime implements “food apartheid.” Like the Castroit regime did in Cuba, the Chavistas are doing it in Venezuela as a mean to control the people.


    Shocking image show how prisoners are starving to death in Venezuela's jails.

    This image look like the ones from the Nazi concentration camps. The Chavistas are deliberately starving the political dissidents that have been jailed, in order to let them died.

    The food bag delivered once a month is a variation of the book rationing in Castrolandia. Like the book rationing, it is only enough to last one week. Welcome to Cubazuela.

    Venezuelans pour into Colombia, desperate for medical care they
    can’t find at home

    Desperate for medical attention, Venezuelans flood into Colombia | Miami Herald


    Valeria Sophia Gómez (left) and Maijer Josue, twins, were born in Cúcuta,
    Colombia, after their Venezuelan mother was told she needed to cross the border if
    the babies were to live. Venezuela’s health crisis has sent thousands across the
    border to seek care. Jim Wyss Miami Herald

    By Jim Wyss

    December 23, 2016

    Marili Gómez was eight months pregnant with twins in her hometown of Valencia,
    Venezuela, when her doctor gave her stark advice: She could either take an 18-hour
    bus ride and seek care in neighboring Colombia or lose the babies.

    As she sat in a bare, second-story walk-up in this Colombian border town feeding
    the newborns, Gómez said she didn’t have to think about the decision very long.
    Just weeks before that doctor’s visit, she’d lost her 16-year-old son to Venezuela’s
    violence — he was stabbed more than a dozen times in what police believe was a
    robbery.

    “I had no choice,” she said of the dangerous journey. “I wanted my babies to live.”
    Venezuela’s stunning economic collapse — going from one of the hemisphere’s
    most prosperous countries to the region’s basket case — is starting to have ripple
    effects in neighboring nations.

    In particular, its crumbling healthcare system is generating waves of medical
    refugees. And while Colombia doesn’t keep track of national figures, hospitals
    along the border say they’ve been swamped with cases.

    Venezuela, a socialist country, cannot provide medical care of its own people. There are about 10,000 Cubans healthcare professionals in Venezuela, which sends the Castroit regime around 92,000 barrels of oil a day worth about US$3.2 billion a year in exchange for their services. Seems that the Cubans doctors cannot solve the medical care crisis. Many have fled to Colombia due to widespread shortages and social unrest in Venezuela.

    Re: Venezuelan parliament votes to begin impeachment proceedings against Maduro

    Monthly wages for Cuban doctors on a foreign mission, at an estimated $100, represent just a fraction of what the Venezuelan government hands over to Cuba in return for its medical services. Cuban doctors complain about harsh working conditions and the poor state of the Venezuelan economy where food shortages and inflation have become a feature of everyday life.
