Slava Ukraini - Viva Venezuela Libre

I am a human rights politologist militant artist from Venezuela living in Italy where I'm now a citizen. I had to flee my country of birth because of my family's political history given that my father was practically the right hand to the last truly democratic President Carlos Andres Perez before the upcoming of the chavista revolution era.

A Venezuelan in Ukraine (Part 3)

I wake up for my second day at Kyiv feeling awesome under so much fostering in such short time. We decide to eat prior to the scheduled meetings during the afternoon. There I had my first alarm experience due to bombing at a country in war.

The kid tells me that he is fighting for them and their country.

Resquebrajamiento y frajilidad politica de Venezuela y sus implicaciones estratégicas.

Bajo un análisis geopolítico en lo fundamental, se determina cuándo el alcance de una “presencia” y a su vez “influencia” de un nivel extranjero significativo, facilita el desencadenamiento de una “acción” de envergadura esencial para un país como el nuestro. Si bien, en lo personal , alcancé a participar y comprobar, como colaborador cercano del Presidente Pérez el “alcane y profundidad positiva”, particolarmente en el ámbito energético, produjo resultados de gran alcance estratégico para Venezuela.

Ni lo uno ni lo otro sino todo lo contrario.

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

Belarus: From Venezuela with Love

In Belarus people have been taking the streets for weeks against a dictator who is trying to suppress the protests with all the harshness of the state apparatus. Despite all the reprisals against the own population, they behave peacefully during all protests.
