Denne fikk jeg tilsendt av en venezuelaner jeg kjenner i dag, og alle "troll" bør lese den. Av den grunn så poster jeg den i denne tråden:
Do you know what’s deeply deeply exhausting?? That we Venezuelans not only have had to put up with 20 years of destruction in our country, persecution, human rights violations, economic disaster and more from the Chavez and Maduro regimes. But now we also have to put up with explaining every single day how we DO know what’s going on in here (because we actually live it), how its not or has it ever been the product of “US blockades” (until this past month, the only sanctions that have ever happened here are personal ones against certain individuals who have been investigated internationally for drug trafficking, corruption, crimes against humanity and more), how this is not about left against right (because no matter what your politics are killing and torturing people should be condemned), how we are not being naive about wanting the US and other countries to intervene (because yes, we do know our history and yes, we do know the US track record of interventions and yes, we prefer the US and other powers getting involved instead of continuing to have Russia, China, Cuba, Iran and other lovely countries such as those leeching off our resources, controlling our military, and manipulating our situation like they have being doing for years now; plus Maduro continuing to decimate our population in a humanitarian crisis of a level this continent has never seen.)
I’m beyond exhausted after watching Venezuelans being butchered in the streets, of having to explain that we are not right-winging, Trump-loving, fascist-wanting, delusional war mongers. We are the people of Venezuela, who have suffered under the brutality of a regime that does not stutter when lying, torturing, killing, maiming, burning aid, starving or stealing. We deserve better from people all over the world but specially from the US, where I understand things are not peachy, but where you still have your basic freedoms and so much more that allow you to get access to sources like Amnesty International and other agencies that have reported for years on the true nature of the brutality of the narcodictatorship in Venezuela. Give us a break here! Imagine telling the Tutsis they were being duped about the Hutus real intentions. Or telling the Jews in Nazi Germany not to accept help from the US because they didn’t really mean well. Or telling the Bosnian Muslims that they really should consider resolving matters inwardly with “elections.”
Please please please educate people around you. Please support us by getting people off their ideological high horse by exposing them to the hard truths of what’s going on in Venezuela. Please be a friend to Venezuela in our worst time and spread messages such as this.
