I received the following April 27, 2017, from a contact living in Venezuela. The country is on the brink of collapse. It is important that Americans know what is taking place because there is absolutely no chance the American mainstream media is going to report the truth that Venezuela is another example of a failed Communist government. Despite the best efforts by neo-Leninist elements in the United States, Venezuela is more proof that Communism and socialism does not work, never has worked, and never will work.

MY CONTACT WROTE ME THE FOLLOWING: FYI…thought I would pass this on to bring you up to date with the protests that have been going on and escalating for the past three wEeks. This weekend could get ugly. This schedule is for Caracas, but these will be going on all over the country, including the island.

Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Venezuelan Labor Day Holiday Weekend Protests (27 April 2017)

The Embassy has received reports that numerous opposition and pro-government gatherings, marches and demonstrations have been called for Friday, April 28, 2017 and the three-day holiday weekend through the Monday, May 1 Labor Day Holiday. If necessary, travel during this period for all Chief of Mission personnel may be restricted to the Santa Fe and Valle Arriba areas.

Dates and areas for potential demonstrations may include, but are not limited to the following:

Friday, April 28: La Mesa de la Unidad (MUD) has called for gatherings tomorrow. Starting rally points have not yet been announced, but more specific details may be divulged at a later time.

Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30: While specific details regarding this protest remain unclear at this time, several social media outlets report that students are expected to gather at various points throughout Caracas.

Monday, May 1: “El Día del Trabajador” is a holiday in Venezuela and has historically been a day of large gatherings and demonstrations in the past. The United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) has announced large rallies for this day, the details of which are unclear at this time.

U.S. citizens are strongly encouraged to monitor local news constantly. Affected areas will likely experience traffic disruptions, and it is also reasonable to expect the heavy presence of police/military near these locations. Clashes between demonstrators, counter-demonstrators, and Venezuelan security forces are possible.

The Embassy strongly cautions all U.S. citizens to avoid protests, and are reminded that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence. Recent protests encountered strong police/security force presence and the use of tear gas. U.S. citizens are urged to avoid areas of demonstrations, and to exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of any large gatherings or protests. Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings, including local events; and monitor local news stations for updates. U.S. Citizens in all parts of Venezuela are urged to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance their personal security.

Thanks for your concern. I just want outsiders to know how serious the problems are here. Not much real news is getting out. Outside reporters are not being allowed in the country and if they do slip through security they are immediately sent out of the country. Product availability is low and those in the lower earning brackets cannot afford most of what is available. The government has been handing out cheap bags of goodies, but no choice in what is given and not much in the bags. They get what is handed them and for a cost less than in the stores. It is still barely keeping those alive who are able to afford the cost and to be in the lines to receive these “gifts”. I have watched the citizens losing countless pounds while they wait for “Papa Madur” to supply something for them. The long lines used to be at the local markets, but the government now has secret, ever changing, outlets so it is not so obvious to anyone caring to see this atrocity. Medicines of any kind are very scarce and hospitals cannot care for patients due to lack of medical supplies. People have been dying in the hospitals awaiting treatment, especially babies. If you would like I can send you photos and videos of what is going on here and how the government forces are treating those protesting. It is a war against the citizens for the sole purpose of staying in control and continuing this dictatorship..
