Rodrigo Figueredo "As an artist, a political analyst and a social media influencer, I have spent my life defending human rights, freedom of expression and democracy. I left Venezuela with my family in 1993 for political reasons. Since then, I have been working along the Venezuelans who struggle to recover freedom, justice and democracy from the Chavista revolution. In the country and abroad, on the front and back scenes, I have relentlessly pushed for the end of the status quo, with empathy and a global vision."
