Informing about the situation in Venezuela

3/1/14 by HadoukenDude
Updated 3/1/14

Hi. First off, for those who don't know, I'm from Caracas, Venezuela and my country is going through a crisis. I'm not one to talk about politics often, but If you haven't been paying attention to the news, there have been a lot of protests and riots in the last month over here. The streets have been getting filled with protesters, mostly students, who are against the current government. Several deaths have been reported due to numerous clashes between the protesters and the national guard,curiously many of them were reportedly by head shots.

There are many reasons why these protests have started:  Government corruption, scarcity of staple goods,the economic situation (high inflation),and  the high crime level, strict currency control,and alleged police brutality. In short things have been rather chaotic over here. For those concerned about my well being at this time,I just want to say that I'm OK. Due to the current situation, I rarely step out of my own home, either due to the current insecurity in the streets or because of burning barricades that have been blocking roads and highways not just all over the capital, but nationwide.

This post was meant to inform people of my country's current status.  The local TV stations here have been largely censored and and give out little to no information as to what's going on. Our freedom of speech here is at risk. Currently our only sources of information are CNN and Social media networks, Mainly Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. The government has threatened to block Twitter and CNN, but it's been backfiring on them after word spread of their actions. Even Anonymous took action by hacking several Governmet accounts in response to the censorship.The protests have been escalating more and more as time passes and in some areas it's been turning into war zones.

Over the last few weeks we've been getting a lot of international support via twitter and the world is watching the country's every move. 

All I ask to whoever is reading this is to please watch and share the embeded video below. It was Posted on feb. 14th, but it sums up what's going on over here.Viewer discretion is strongly advised.

Thank you for your attention and pray for us.

Hadokendude stay strong man look at the bright side at least your country is doing something about the issue in their country. We got Obama and the United Sheeple of Asslickers. So at least your people are willing to fight for their freedoms ours are just so brainwashed i'm shocked they still remember to flush and wipe. One way or another the situation will resolve, the only unknown factor is which side will come out on top. Stay strong and keep loyal to friends and family and they will see you through. May the Moon Goddess watch over you and keep you safe.

Still is war in Venezuela?

It's more like a civil unrest. Like the Arab Spring.

De todo corazón, espero y la situación en tu país mejore de forma rápida.
La ventaja que tienen es que tu pueblo no se queda con los brazos cruzados ante semejantes atropellos, la desventaja es que la corrupción, manipulación y violencia esta cobrando muchas victimas.
Ruego por que lleguen a una situación pacifica y que todo cambie en favor para ustedes.
Cuídate mucho amigo.
Saludos desde México


Dude, that's horrible, I hope you stay safe man!

As someone who grew up in a place which has been suffering through this kind of tension and more over the last four decades.... I am with you. My prayers will be with you and the folks on your end.

Also know that you did a very courageous thing, telling us about what's going on when hardly anyone else dares open their mouths on the matter. Kudos.

Thank you. I didn't want to alarm my fans over this, but sometimes it's best to report it than to keep quiet.


Espero que todo se resuelva pronto y se encuentre una solucion pacifica,siempre es el pueblo el que termina pagando el costo de la corrupcion y la mala administracion del gobierno de turno.Saludos desde argentina amigo.


Aside from cnn you could try rt.com and aljazeera.com for mainstream reports.

If you don't mind conspiracy sources there's rense.com, infowars.com and davidicke.com.

When there's an inheritance one gets to know their family members, when there's a war or an uprising one gets to know their journalists.

Stay safe and may the gods preserve you.
