    CNN is just repackaging old news from last August. https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/05/ameri...uro/index.html

    Maduro has already arrested some and that was months ago. What is new here without my listening to another video on this old news?

    Why not the Trump's Tower? Trump continues to dismiss the conclusions of the CIA, State/ Defense Departments etc, that N.Korea will not abandon its nuclear program, continuing to insist that he and his great friend Kim, a true democrat, can negotiate a deal. Really unfair to Maduro.

    Come on, let's keep in mind that the Trump administration has stopped cooperating with UN on human rights violations...Trump, human rights activist?

    534 activists were murdered in Colombia in the period between 2011-2016. And this continues. This year already about 20 have already being murdered

    Now can you imagine Maduro putting hitmen to assasinate his enemies? What little Rubio would say?

    Of course political muscle need not be measures by the number of murders.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world...=.1765700e9540

    I found that by going to Papay's wola site which is a bit of a collector of internet news.

    The neighbors were fed up. For days, they’d had no electricity or running water because of a massive national blackout. So one morning this week, they piled logs and garbage into a makeshift barricade in their middle-class Caracas neighborhood and started yelling slogans against the government.
    Then came the motorcycles.
    There were at least 20 of them, their motors buzzing, driven by men with scarves over their faces, according to interviews with 10 witnesses. The demonstrators scattered. But as people in surrounding buildings started hurling bottles at the bikers, the men raised their weapons — pistols and rifles — and opened fire.
    No one was injured. But the neighbors were terrified.
    “Now we can’t even protest, because they’ll shoot at us,” said Delia Arellano, 72, one of the demonstrators.

    The attack on Sunday was a chilling sign of how President Nicolás Maduro is increasingly relying on paramilitary groups as he clings to power. This week, he publicly urged the motorcycle-riding “colectivos” to intensify their efforts, as the country teetered on the edge of economic collapse and a U.S.-backed opposition movement pressed for his ouster.
