We are trying to cause awareness for the plight of the people of Venezuela.
The government is fighting against the people who are speaking up about such things as the oppression and the mandated rationing of necessities.
We are attempting to get the attention of America's leaders and/or the UN to see what can be done to help the people of Venezuela.
The Venezuelan government has seized control of all media, even internet communication in order to command total control and hide their actions.
Today's demonstration is the beginning of a movement to, create nation-wide awareness in America of this growing civil-war and to, for instance, encourage the UN to go in and see what the Venezuelan government is doing.
