Masses continue protesting against the government in Venezuela

Mass gatherings continued to take place in Venezuela today to protest against the government of Nicolas Maduro. Again, social media told the story. (See: What’s going on in Venezuela? By guest blogger Rubens Yanes.)

In video below: Lilian Tintori, the wife of imprisoned opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, spoke to a crowd. She said, “We were millions who showed up today. .. We want peace. We are democratic. We are not violent. .. Thank you for this support that you are giving us today. .. We want to walk through the streets peacefully without being killed, without being kidnapped. We don’t want to wait in line at the supermarkets. We want to find diapers for our babies. I cannot find diapers for Leopoldo Santiago. .. We want peace, and we will continue on the street. .. This is dictatorship.”

And the government’s National Guard continued its repression against the protesters.
