Venezuela: Beyond Corruption

Dear Journalists,
Following President Obama’s announcement of sanctions against seven prominent Venezuelan officials responding to the South American government's increasingly violent actions ( Maduro promoted the infamous individuals.
Maduro engaged in a disinformation campaign stating that the United States attacked Venezuela and collected signatures from school children, prisoners, military, etc.
Currently, Maduro has very low popularity where some reports of 13 percent approval ratings. On April 18, 2015 a call to support for Maduro in Maracay was a total loss where no one showed up as reported by @Hesus_Petit. It was revealed that Hugo Chavez used to bring “supporters” to protest in Caracas from all over Venezuela by paying $60.00 equivalent  and providing red t-shirts to those who participated.
Venezuela is a ecological disaster where the government has neglected all environmental areas. International organizations should impose major penalties for environmental destruction.
A Venezuelan humanitarian organization based in Miami is allegedly ran by Nicolas Maduro’s relatives living in Florida, and/or is directly linked to them.
Maduro is keeping prominent political figures as political prisoners because they disagree with his rhetoric. The immediate release of @leopoldolopez @alcaldeledezma is urgent. Please visit @liliantintori.
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.
