"It's Madness" - Massive Anti-Government Protests In Venezuela Worsen, Patterns Emerge

Authoired by Mac Slavo via SHTFplan.com,

As protests against Venezuela’s “democratic socialist” government roll into their third month, Dr. Henrique Montbrun, who oversees the triage post in the municipality of Baruta, says the violence in the country has reached unprecedented levels. “It’s madness,” he says.

As more people take to the streets to demand their freedom back in a nation where tyranny took a firm hold shortly after the election of self-proclaimed socialist, Nicolaus Maduro, the country descended into complete government control, and the only people with money, are now those in the government.  Socialism is fair that way; as no system more equally distributes poverty, except maybe communism. But a pattern is now emerging in the battle for basic human rights and minimal freedoms.

The clashes between the demonstrators and security forces are entering their third month, and even doctors say that they can no longer predict the type of violence to prepare for, but they can predict that there will be increasing numbers of injuries and death.

The only pattern emerging is one of even more violence.

Dr. Montbrun says that the injuries sustained at the beginning of protests were largely superficial, usually buckshot wounds. More recently, however, as protesters have gone up against an increasingly desperate government, protestors have been treated for 5cm-deep holes caused by metal marbles shot at close range.

“Violence doesn’t surprise me but the level of hatred security forces are showing towards average citizens and the use of non-conventional weapons like loading tear gas canisters with nails and marbles does take me aback,” Dr. Montbrun says.

According to the public defender’s office, 67 people (including minors, students, passersby, and national guards) have died during or as a result of the protests. On Wednesday, an 18-year-old died of an explosive-related wound to the chest and a national guard was murdered causing a rash of even more anti-government protests. And yet, despite the escalation of violence, protesters remain in the streets trying to demand their freedom.

“I am not afraid,” says Rosmery Indare, 19, who arrived barely conscious at the triage post. “They threw several gas bombs and we all ran. I tried to go into a nearby mall but most shops had closed and I was cornered.”


Rosmery described how two national guards clubbed her in the legs and knees while threatening to jail her. “They’re not going to stop me from marching,” she says.


I haven’t had a chance to enjoy my country because they stole it from us but this time, I am sure, we will recover [it].” –The Guardian

As the Venezuelan government continues to starve its own people through regulations and kill for protesting their own starvation, the resolves of those living under the oppression of socialism seem to continue to harden. Venezuela destroyed their own economy with socialist policies, which are carryovers from Hugo Chavez’s reign of terror. With inflation rising by 800% in 2016 while the economy shrank by 18.6% over the same period, according to the central bank, crime has soared with over 28,479 homicides in 2016.  That leaves Venezuela with one of the highest murder rates in the world, and the worst economy. Finding food or medicine has become nearly impossible, except for the very few who can afford black market prices and the risk of death.

Unfortunately, it looks as though Venezuela’s situation will worsen before it improves.

"it takes two to tango"

And you should realize that Maduro is just an agent. It so obvious. Now he and CIA play the classic drama "socialism is bad”. And have fun.
But stupid, corrupted government created by CIA masters is always the same regardless of labels. They ruin the country and people. The only difference is the show.
We have little show if CIA's puppets are good rooted and work for their masters. But occasionally we have big shows when sometimes emerge someone who desire to overthrow these invisible patrons from CIA. So we had Hugo Chavez.
He was eliminated, but it is not enough. Now all the people must know how it ends, when someone decide to give up of protection of wise guys from CIA.

Ya for sure. The controlled opposition concept is a bit hard for people to get their mind around, even for those who know there is a rabbit hole. Chavez's background reads like a how to manual of spook markers. Not to say it is in any way unusual. Door #4 anyone? In the words of another famous agent; you can't fool all the people all the time.

Where did this socialism equals free shit start. "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" meaning if you dont give shit you don't get shit. There's no free lunch with socialism. There is only free shit in govt kleptocracy masquerading as socalism. Not that I'm a fan of socialism mind because it usually devolves to kleptocracy.

Actually socialism works.  It worked well for Khazarian Jews in the Pale of Settlement.  But sometimes a goy would claim to be a Jew, only to gain free privledges.  So the requirements to be a Jew became strict.  Then the Khazarians weaponized it as a tool to destroy the goyum from within, as they had made the Vatican eat itself alive with the Inquisition

Because, fighting with words and "he said, she said" is so much more important, newsworthy, MANLY and ENTERs the masses into the TAINMENT than showing a graphic and stark reality we all could face in the near future.No no...can't have the masses thinking about starving and having to fight entrenched "government".  Heaven forbid the masses start thinking about how they will survive and/or whether they really want things to get that bad.  Much worse, even more people prepping, training and hardening themselves with practice would really be too, too much.

Marc, you really haven't a clue, do you... You'll keep blaming the situation on "oppression of socialism" like it means anything. Venezuela is in the shape it is today not because Maduro hunts his citizens for sport, it is because there are outside forces wanting to wring the nation dry of their vast natural resources working hand in hand with disenfranchised robber barons who used to run the country. Maduro govt is being professionally undermined from outside by the likes of NED, and there are scores of merc protesters who routinely incite the violence, all bought and paid for from the inside by the oligarchs who are desperate to push their way back to the trough. The country is being destabilised on purpose.

But Marc is too stupid to see past labels like "socialist" and "left". Tomorrow he'll harp on about "banksters" without even realising how badly he contradicts himself. Sad, really.

So explain how those "outside forces" stopped Chavez and Maduro from maintaining their oil eqpt, even when oil was in the $70 and above range? How did those "outside forces" make Chavez and Maduro implement price controls? How did those "outside forces" make Chavez and Maduro confiscate inventory? Dont get defensive, just explain how the outside forces made Chavez and Maduro make these decisions.

Can you name one Socialist government that has not created more poverty while ruining its economy? Russia, as bad as the Czar was, also was the largest exporter of wheat in the world. It only took Lenin a few years to reverse that so that the contry was starved of wheat. China became a basket case under Mao, England's economy was a joke in the 70's, Chavez & Maduro have managed the world's largest oil reserves to the point where Venezuela's energy industry has been destroyed. If you don't understand history or economics keep your stupidity to yourself.

Yawn, the socialists keep on repeating the same crap.. the Maduro Government is not doing very well because of the economic sanctions, CIA opposition, oil prices etc...Funny that Iran and Russia are also facing economic sanctions from the US and similar if not worse opposition from the (((Deep State))) and yet, they are doing fine.. UNLIKE Venezuela.... probably because they are not socialist countries!!!When are libtards finally going to admit that third world socialism DOESN'T WORK.. Socialism sort of works in SMALL and homogenous countries like Scandinavia, but not in low IQ countries full of nigger monkeys like Venezuela..

"metal marbles"  Are these not ball-bearings?  Is this sort of language meant to soften what is happening?Since when does "buck shot" only create "superficial wounds?  The stuff I use would be like having nine .38s shot at you all at once. RS

You do know there is a "style guide" that the American newspapers use?   You find the subject you're wanting to discuss, and it tells you the "appropriate" words to use.I'm guessing there are similar style guides in Venezuela.  Being under "socialist" control, I'm thinking the word choice is deliberate.As I've said here before, when translating from one language to English, a whole bunch can be changed/interpreted/lost in translation/skewed/mis-applied.

The National Guard in Venezuela sound like thugs...   Why don't they protest NOT on their drill weekends or summer 2 week annual training?   :-)

There is a pattern alright and that is called "CIA" and "Mossad". They managed to fry Chavez by radiation (and 4 other Latin American Presidents too that havn't died from it yet). Socialism could work just fine, like it did in Yugoslavia before the US IMF:ed it.

Agreed.  No Western reports carry the fact that economic war is being waged on Venezuela ... just as with any country trying to maintain sovereignty.  It is simple minded to blame socialism, which has had considerable success around the World, e.g. China and Libya, also Venezuela until oil price manipulation and CIA destabilization.If a country is trying to pursue a different path, socialist or not, it will be attacked, one way or another ... of course you'll never read this in the MSM, nor this article.

economic war is being waged on Venezuela???This is a country that has more oil reserves than Saudi Arabia and yet has gasoline shortages.This is country that has a net exporter of food and now its people starve. “If you put our federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there would be a shortage of sand." - Milton Friedman
