Don’t protest, because I’ll shoot you. Don’t make demands, because I’ll take you prisoner. Don’t inform, because I’ll take you off the air. Nice democracy, right?

The following video shows an emotional speech given by a student in front of GNB/Venezuela military guards, some of them who can’t keep themselves from sharing tears after listening to her talk about how discontent she is with the crisis the country is currently living in.
"Me too. I also work everyday to be able to maintain myself, to be able to study, because my mother has no money to pay for my college tuition or any other luxuries. Everything I have, I have it because I work hard, because I want to go further, because I don’t want to depend on anyone. But how can I do it when that is not possible in this country no matter how much effort we put in?"
«We are going to get through this.»
"But how? How, when they don’t even support us?"
«They will support us. The moment will come, because they are Venezuelans too and it also hurts them.»
"Think of your families. If they kill us, nobody is going to do something about those deaths. Fight because someday we can all live in a country where not even the police will be afraid to go out. Because there will be no need of insecurity killing us all. Fight for that!”
She gets in front of the first woman
"Look, you’re a woman and you’re crying because you are feeling what I AM feeling. I can see you’re all teared up. Look at me, look me in the eyes and feel what I feel."
She gets in front of the next woman
"And you too because I know you were crying, look at your eyes. Fight for us, fight for you and for your family. What do you want? You want Venezuela to completely fall into its knees so that you all can recapacitate what we are living? Is that necessary? Is it necessary for more people to die so that we can go further? Ask yourselves and think how many venezuelans have to die for this to end. So that we can all stop agonizing day by day."
"Take off that uniform. Today, you should all be ashamed you’re using them."
"When will you all realize that this country is exhausted? We can’t continue dying here, we just all want to move forward."
"It looks like those uniforms takes your souls away. And when you take them off, what do you feel? When you take that uniform off, tell me, what do you feel?…
Why don’t you look me in the eyes?”
Venezuela is now a week into protests against Nicolas Maduro’s government for problems concerning incessant crime, inflation, insecurity, and shortages. Several social media and television platforms have been blocked, 6 people have died, and the opposition leader Leopoldo López has been arrested. [x]
