Maduro in Venezuela

Was listening to a news broadcast from Columbia about events in Venezuela. They did a long interview with a General of the Venezuelan Army speaking from prison, arrested for speaking out against bringing in Cuban regulars to Venezuela to “handle” the anti-government demonstrations.

Local press has been pretty quiet, and one can somewhat understand this, as there have been arrests and killings of reporters and journalists, and Maduro openly threatens them. He and the Chavista holdovers use a law the Chavista Congress passed that says news media has to report “the truth”. Guess who determines what the truth is?

He named a long list of other generals who had also been arrested and put in prison. In my opinion, there are some sympathy among the rest of them, and that’s why they let him get interviewed from prison.

I’ve already posted links to videos of some of the abuses against protestors.
