    “We have lived through dictatorships, but never before have so many people crossed the border like this. What we have in Venezuela is anarchy.”

    The ultimate irony being they are escaping over the Simon Bolivar International Bridge.

We do it in the hope that the people of Venezuela will rise up and express their will on behalf of all us who are being silenced. The democracy missing in our country today remains alive in the heart of Venezuelans.

    We’re asking the people to participate massively in these elections, voting for Democratic Unity Roundtable candidates and actively working in polling stations, mobilizing and informing voters and defending votes in every electoral center.

    As political prisoners, we’re not allowed to vote on October 15th, but we ask all Venezuelans to vote on our behalf. If we want change, we must participate, guaranteeing a resounding electoral victory that allows us to:

    Punish Maduro and his candidates for their ineptitude and indifference to the severe problems people are facing; for their corruption, for their constant human rights violations and for disrespecting fundamental liberties.
    Wrest regional power from the regime to serve the people and release hundreds of thousands of public employees in PSUV-controlled governor’s offices, where they are constantly threatened and blackmailed by the State.
    Keep advancing until we win presidential elections and recover all the spaces overtaken by the so-called “Bolivarian Revolution” just like we took back the National Assembly in 2015.
    Promote decentralization and restore gubernatorial authority.
    Exercise pressure to find a solution to the social, political and economic crisis, using the opportunity offered by this election to recover spaces, voting to overcome the crisis and those who caused it.
    Defeat the government once again on the electoral arena and force them to hear our plight for change. "

    Signed

    Sorry rich kids but amazing comeback for the 'Chavista' PSUV in regional elections yesterday to 54% of a good 61% turnout claimed see-venezuelanalysis dot com

    The IMF are said to have claimed the country's GDP will have shrunk 35% by the end of the year (the fall in the price of oil has very badly impacted it) so people must be seeing this as a sort of war/emergency situation ? Polls had shown the PSUV and allies at only around 20% . Anyhow it is good that Venezuelans have gotten off the fence to stop the corrupt neo-liberal opposition even if the PSUV has been somehow corrupted itself
    see-theguardian dot com latest article

    The site that has been associated with the internal Chavista opposition does not seem unhappy judging by my very bad Spanish. see-www dot aporrea dot org

    Basic groceries have become unaffordable for many in Venezuela,
    where over 80% of people now live in poverty.

    Maybe try socialism?

    Oh, wait...
