|March For Education and Against Indoctrination Venezuela, April 26, 2014|
Following events in Cuba and Venezuela with access to primary sources then reading about it in the mainstream press is a sometimes sobering affair. For example, in Venezuela on April 25, 2014 the rubber stamp Supreme Tribunal of Justice outlawed spontaneous peaceful protests in Venezuela in violation of international human rights standards. The Venezuelan military has mobilized troops and maintained a visible presence in areas where the populace are anti-regime. Finally today thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets in mass demonstrations against the political indoctrination of their children. You wouldn't know this from the mainstream media.The question to mainstream journalists is not all of this news?
