Young Man Shot In The Head During Venezuela Protest: Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture

With Venezuela holding a massive protest today dubbed the "Mother Of All Protests" to challenge the rule of president Maduro, who meanwhile has ordered the army into the streets, while summoning a counterprotests, violence seemed inevitable and moments ago Reuters reported that a young protester was shot in the Venezuelan capital of Caracas.

While Reuters was unable to immediately obtain further details on the incident, witnesses said the man was shot in the head.

As reported before, Venezuela's opposition began the "mother of all protests" on Wednesday, accusing President Nicolas Maduro of resorting to dictatorial measures to quash popular outrage over a deepening economic crisis.

In the culmination of a fortnight of violent demonstrations that have killed five people, protesters around the country will demand the government present a timeline for delayed elections, halt a security crackdown on protests, and respect the autonomy of the opposition-led legislature.

Recent marches have repeatedly ended in clashes between demonstrators and security forces. Youths throwing rocks have squared off against security forces spraying tear gas in melees that have dragged on well into the evening.

The shooting has taken place despite appeals for a peaceful protests.

Photos on the ground suggest that the protest is set to be one of the largest in recent history:

Protester shot in the head.  Where have we heard of this before (Maidan, Tahrir, etc)?  I wonder what color this revolution is going to be.

Ignatius's picture

Right.  The questions are, who fired the shot and who benefits?

Tragic for the man and his family, regardless.

gladih8r's picture

Not sure who benefits, but George Soros called dibs on some of the organs.

It's no coincidence that most armed forces and Maduro followers are mostly nergroids.

The whole of Venezuelas populace has unfortunate fucked up genes.

Maybe no coincidence they have some of the longest standing democratic traditions in the world since the days of Bolivar .

Hate to say it but socialism is not such a bad idea as practiced on the remaining non white populace

as in Cuba where we are about to finish the third decade of socialist rule after the collapse of communism in 1989. No one botherd to „liberate“ that beautiful island without oil because all whites had fled anyway and them mixed race mongrels would vote for socialism at first chance

to get back to tradition where losers take it all.

 

Hate to say but mixed race nations litter the globe and there is not a single qualified success.

Only failed nations and broken empires that forced unnatural change in extreme violent ways.

 

Hate not it is to say that multiculturalism is possible the biggest crime on earth.

   Forced multiculturism is a fatal cancer.And it's not even about race/color. It's about trying to force a new culture into an exisiting one. Look at what happened to Yugoslavia once Tito died.It reverted to 1000 year old tribes.....Serbs, Croats etc. They killed each other with pitchforks in some cases. Muslim granparents were killed by Christian family members.  

   The chaos in Europe will end the same way. The Nationalists in each country will eventually push back against the 'refugee' immigrants. Right now it's Germany and Sweden. By the way, a truly free Germany would vote Herr Merkel out and charge her with treason and jail her.

   The only cities where multiculturism has worked are places like NYC, Lisbon, Boston etc. Places that were the point of entry for a nation that had a lot of world trade. NYC has Little Italy, China Town and German Town. Boston has the Irish. These immigrants were assimilated  because there were plentry of jobs for all. Maybe low wage jobs but the 2nd generation always did better than the first.

   So you have Europe with 1% job growth if that, all countries nearly insolvent and EU government that is trying to break the back of Nationalism. "You're not really Italians, your European. You're not Spanish anymore, you're part of the New Europe and should be proud! Those old nationalities only hold you back." Blah blah...

   It hasn't been tried much in the US because the US is still too strong in many ways. There are very bad times just ahead for the US. Once the banks fail and a recession turns into a depression, the black and white hatred will spill over and the police won't be able to deal with it. 

TheGardener's picture

Hate to say it, but the US is the new Rome on steroids. Fucking taking all for granted. And bound for a much bigger fail than any empire before.

But you are right from this your US perspective: immigration could be called a qualified success if not for that little requirement everyone give up his culture at the entrance and embrace consumerism only as his god.

100 million internal enemies should be enough to leave the whole world alone for a century or two.

 

Jubal Early's picture

Is that really the case?  Maduro himself looks meztizo/spanish mix.  Do you have any reliable statistics of army racial breakdown?  This Amerindian vs European invader conflict will likely soon be exploited as a maxist problem/reaction crisis.

Chavez could adress his nation for hours about secret weapons to have him radiated and he got just that.

Just another problem with mixing races and incest in a population : the secondary markers of gender get blurred beyond recognition.

they're protesting to have the current soicalist despot to be replaced by another. The opposition party leader is just another socialist DICKtator.

All those dumbfuck Bernie supporters better take note, Venezuela is simply the most recent example of Socialism failing miserably.

Communism begins with a gun in your face, Socialism ends with a gun in your face.

Here's some info on that communist rat-haired chick who got punched in the face.  In her spare time, when she's not decrying the evils of capitalism, she's doing porn.

Absolutely right, but if the Bernie people were stupid enough to support him, they are stupid enough not to connect the dots with Venezuela.

Venezuela is toast. That Maduro motherfucker just yesterday swapped gold for US Dollars. The fucker and his country are dead and done for the moment he did that. 

Peacefulwarrior's picture

He is taking the position that US Dollars will rise before Gold in this cycle and he will be able to use them with greater ease.

Just cut off the food supply even more. Cant protest if you're too starved to move.

Maduro should be impeached at once so the vice President TARECK EL ASSAMI can take over!

I mean, what could possibly go wrong?   ;-)

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

Bet if he had some Au he'd still be alive!

Peacefulwarrior's picture

AU means very little when you are near a Mad MAX situation and need currency you can move with. You can't move it as easy as the dollar "at Moment"

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

Nahh?...

I'll take my chance with the 1 oz gold coin vs. $1,200 x the number of paper contracts to that "ounce of phyz" (and counting)... ANY day of the week!

The alchemy has been great fun going on 103 years with better than 100 million "early retirees" since then.

So I'll take my bets and chances with the "yeller stuff" vs. the "IOUs" attached to it given where this is ALL headed as you put it rather succinctly in this MAD MAX world we are increasingly "living in" of the "have's" and "have nots" utopia inspired through that "ALCHEMY" I just mentioned!

Peacefulwarrior's picture

My point is at "MOMENT" Venezuela is starving and destitute. They need a vehicle they can move fast with and (at moment) that's the dollar not AU. If this planet goes full Mad Max then AU is worthless and you need to go long FOOD. Let's hope that don't happen so you get to see your $5000+ AU coins eventually instead...

Son of Captain Nemo's picture

Better to barter for that food with gold than "toilet paper" -wouldn't you agree?...

If you did all your homework whether you used metal or paper to buy the sheep, pigs and vegetable garden you've already left the "neighborhood" and paid for it!

At the end of the day though it's all about the "store of value"... And the CBs aren't doing a very persuasive job (with the passage of time) through their use of force to sell me on the "USE OF FORCE"!

Case in point the young man in the streets of Caracas with the back of his head missing!

Peacefulwarrior's picture

Yes...BUT "Timing is Everything" and at Moment he needs dollars so he can make unquestioned moves as the dollar is still the best looking girl at the dance.

But only if you are one hell of a stupid goy whore who loves getting brutally raped in every orifice!

Peacefulwarrior's picture

Dang dude get some ointment for that rape scene you just ilustrated!

Venezuela don't give a $hit about their orifice's, they're starving! Dollars as a medium make more sense than AU for them right now. Their world is a vampire.

Chavez was right. I SMELL SULPHUR and it's not coming from "butt cracks" in Venezuela!!!

You must admit those Anglos love the "pain"!... And always dress up in shiny leather for the occasion!!!

HOw did that on-site AU work out in Libya? I now understand why countries hold gold abroad.

Edit: SOME gold abroad.

Think I just answered it.

The U.S. and it's minions have a choice just like the Soviets circa 1990 before them which is now where the Anglo-Zionist/Brussels contingent is 28 years later...

IF YA CAN'T BEAT 'EM JOIN 'EM!

Because attempting to continue "beating them" isn't workin and will have moar "early retirees" in the end than anticipated!!!

silvermail's picture

Oh yes, the role of snipers in any color revolution - this is the most important of all staged acting roles!

We have already seen all this in Iraq, Libya, Ukraine ...

In the next series of this annoying scenario, viewers will be shown the so-called "moderate democratic OPPOSITION", which will be armed with new rifles and machine guns, with the label "Made in the USA."

Don't forget Iran's failed "green revolution" where a lovely young woman was shot right off the bat.
