My Venezuelan friends are reporting the following:
Students are being killed
Yes you read it right, students like yourself are being killed in Venezuela, a country in south America.
This is no fiction, it is not part of a dystopian YA novel, is real life. They are being killed by their own government, they live in a DICTATORSHIP.
You read The Hunger Games? You read novels about repressive regimes, imagine to live that for real. That is what Venezuelan students and population is living.
You felt the terror of the characters of the Harry Potter novels against the treat of the Dark Lord, That is the terror and fear that Venezuelans feels because of the repression and the armed gangs that kill people on the streets.
For a couple of days the Venezuelan students supported by the general population has being on the streets protesting against the dictatorship, the censorship of the communication media (tv, radio, news papers, even the internet), and for the lack of FOOD. Simply there is no food on the stores or in the supermarket. You can not buy (even if you have the money) you can not buy milk, oil, sugar, meat, flour, etc., because there is not any of that in the whole country.
Please take a second and within your fandom and friends raise awareness of the life and death of the Venezuelans, trapped for real in the nightmare of a dystopian reality that is trying to expand itself to another countries, even maybe yours.
