Los venezolanos se encuentran en una situación de desespero, frustración, indefensión (inducida a veces) y de resiliencia en el sentido negativo de la palabra que se traduce en un desencanto total, falta de confianza y rechazo a sus "representantes" (tanto usurpadores como pretendidos) Por un lado, se desinfla la dinámica del Interinato que inició con un gran apoyo y expectat
In the middle of the biggest economic collapse of any nation in modern times, Venezuela is experiencing a fundamental, and perhaps irreversible, change within its economic system.

We did a great interview with Rodrigo Figueredo, he is an artist, a political analyst and a social media influencer, he has spent his life defending human rights, freedom of expression and democracy.
Questions in the interview:
What was the situation when you had to flee Venezuela?
What happened when Chavez came to power?
What reforms were being implemented by Carlos Andres Perez, the last Democratic president of Venezuela?
How did Chavez use the power when he was president?
How did the connection between Venezuela and Cuba come about?
As an artist, a political analyst and a social media influencer, I have spent my life defending human rights, freedom of expression and democracy.
