People are dying while the politicos from both side are playing their games in the country and abroad.

Any “freedom” must be achieved without violence or it becomes impure.
International help (Food and medicines) is arriving to the border town of Cucuta in Colombia to be delivered in Venezuela. What has been the response of the Venezuelan Government? Block the border access.

Well, death is a form of freedom, right?
