"El diputado Américo De Grazia fue empujado escaleras abajo y cinco personas le cayeron encima, lo golpearon salvajemente y está hospitalizado, esto mientras el diputado Diosdado Cabello sonreía", denunció Machado.
Narró que ella fue tirada al piso por el cabello, mientras la diputada Nancy Ascencio la golpeaba cerca del puesto del presidente de la AN, Diosdado Cabello.

In the meantime, infamous self-proclaimed Maduro ordered seizing the media networks to show another government event.
The International Court of Justice, busy at it is, should make time to prosecute Hugo Chavez’s thugs who survived him for abuse of power, fraud, and more fraud if the alleged algorithms and open violation of the vote are true.
Venezuelans need help from world leaders to assure the safety of the opposition leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
