My country, Venezuela, is in turmoil. We are on the edge of a revolution. Our socialist government has failed us. The prices are too high. There is not enough food. There are too many murders. Too much crime. Many of us live without water and electricity. We are hungry. We are starving. We are hungry for change.
My people are fighting day and night in the streets. You can hear the gunshots. You can smell the tear-gas. Risking their lives. Many have died. But this is just the beginning. It is time to bring the battle to the global stage. It is time to bring it online. We cannot give up.
But the Government is fighting us online too. The information war is just as vigorous. Our government blocked images on Twitter. They even cut-off access to the Internet for 600,000 of us in the university city, San Cristobal. They are blocking websites. But this is just the beginning. We must organise ourselves with technology. We have to keep posting online. Keep posting on social media.
If you are from Venezuela, I urge you to share your story. If you aren't from Venezuela, I urge you to share our stories. Thank you.
We can make a difference.
