Twitter has erupted following the horrific violence taking place in Venezuela. Celebrities are tweeting messages with the hashtag #PrayForVenezuela in hopes to draw attention to the injustice happening in that country.

Pure chaos has broken out in Venezuela, which started as peaceful protests by students who were reacting to the conditions in their country over the past several months. The protests were passive until their turned violent on Feb. 12. Citizens of Venezuela are protesting against the shortages of basic food and medicine in their country, along with the increase in violence over the past several years. Celebrities like Demi Lovato, Wilmer Valderrama and Madonna are using social media to tell the world about what’s going on, especially since President Nicolas Maduro has shut down Twitter and TV news channels. 

Celebrities Speak Out About Violence In Venezuela

The situation in all of Venezuela’s major cities has become incredibly dangerous. Many people have been shot and killed, including 22-year-old beauty queen, Génesis Carmona. There’s thousands of people protesting in the streets, being met with opposition from the local police. There’s tear gas, fires, and blood everywhere you look. Plus, students and local civilians are being arrested and it’s not being reported.

Venezuela is repairing itself just fine after a very brief incident. Can’t say the same for Ukraine. Since the death of Twitter, most news readers never notice little things that don’t last long or make an impact.

it is not repairing, it really is bad over there. The police is getting into their apartments and hitting them and people don’t know that. The situation is really bad in both countries and we have to let the whole world know about it!

Venezuela is still suffering. Just last night, someone died nearby to where I live, next to a pharmacy. In Caracas, it’s utter chaos. The police’s only orders is to kill and make people suffer. But the people have done nothing to deserve this. Many people, especially internationals, are worried about being admitted back in the country after vacationing. School has been cancelled, trips and plans. Search and make sure before you post

It is the anti-democratic Fascists that are interested in this violence.
