    Things in my country Venezuela, are getting very serious, since yesterday Monday at 5 am, a group of military armed forces, rose up against Maduro, supporting for the very first time the civilians which is amazing.
    Which caused Maduro to send the policy, some intelligence groups like the SEBIN and CICPC and some troops to attack them! Then the civilians went out to protest in aid of the military group that rose up against Maduro.


    Currently in the early hours of this Tuesday 1:06 am there are protests in various sectors of my city Caracas, if If you want to be more informed about this situation follow this instagram account, a Venezuelan journalist that explain everything with proper english and pictures.

    This thread will most likely be locked but it's good to share the failure of socialism with the liberals here in America. If there was only a real Max Payne...

    The protests are a good sign. Your country is still alive. I'd be way more worried if there were no more civil unrest.

    Good luck and stay safe!

    At least military, or a group of it, is supporting the people from the looks of it, that's definitely a good thing, given the circumstances.

    Just got back from a trip to Colombia myself; lots and lots of Venezuelan economic refugees there, my impression is the Colombians are getting a bit annoyed with them, but when your paying $50 USD for a hamburger I can see why you'd want to leave. Be safe man



    And don't take this as provocative but the U.S. caused this directly after the nationalized their oil companies.

    lol, this is almost as classy as saying something rude/mean and then saying "No Offense" right after. The smart thing is not to say it.

    You're blaming the oil industry for a poor choice in socialism, and even poorer execution of it?

    This was a poorly implemented version of socialism that was more like communism and not really either. Still when leaders get absolute power and enrich themselves and starve the people it never works now does it?

    Animated gifs don't seem to work anymore (since XenForo switch).
