November 14, 2016
EVENT DATE Oct 26, 2016
This September 1st more than 1 million people went out to the streets to peacefully demand elections in my country.
For those who know me, I recently moved from the States to my home country to work at the National Congress. Many people don’t understand why I moved to Venezuela who faces one of the worst socioeconomical crisis in the world at the moment, but that’s a debatable conversation. I grew up here, my family lives here, many friends live here (The ones who hasn’t left) and i want it to be like when Venezuela was a prosper country. I’m working on making that happen and I think that my efforts along with other people´s efforts are going to make that a reality.
We are one of the richest countries in the world but at the same time one the poorest due to governmental policies. There is food shortage, there is no medicine and there is unmeasurable violence. Economic recession and an estimated inflation of 700%. We need to get rid of this government and this system with the majority of people that count on us. This massive demonstration was not easy to achieve, but neither impossible. With hundreds of thousands of people working with the same goal we were able make pressure and make the government set dates for the next step: Gather 20% of the voters’ signatures (Nearly 4 Million signature) In which we have no doubt we will get to this and much more.
But here is the thing, the minimum wage un Venezuela is around 20 bucks per month. Resources are limited, that’s why I am asking for your contribution to this cause. We need to organize and mobilize people and the best way to do it is with megaphones and speakers, they are expensive if a couple a people assume the cost, but if we divide it by more people and friends it will be much easier to get them. That’s why it doesn’t matter how much you donate; every dollar you can donate is going to help us get those megaphones to organize the gathering of this 4 million people on the 26, 27 and 28 of October.
We need to recover democracy in Venezuela, people are starving to death and children are dying from malnutrition, and we won’t sit back and do nothing about it. We have to change this, and we will. I guarantee you that with the support of hundreds of people around the world and the people in Venezuela we will be able overcome this situation.
Thanks for your comprehension and support, I know you would do the same for your country.
