In Venezuela, Feb. 12, university students and government opposition started protesting
against their national economic crisis, blaming its President Nicolas Maduro.
Since then, government repression and the resistance of the protesters has being
increasing in intensity. To date, hundreds of people are being detained, many have
been wounded by police, and nearly ten people have died.
Maduro’s government also has a strong group of supporters, and he has rallied them to
take to the streets in what he calls “pacific manifestations.”
Humber News Reporter Raúl A. Pinto spoke to Rebecca Sarfatti, member of Toronto
group “Venezuelans for Democracy” about the situation and the repercussions it could
have for the future of the country.
