Repression Backlash: Antonio Banderas says freedoms in Venezuela "are being steamrolled"

"Venezuelans, fight for your freedom and do not be enslaved" - Antonio Banderas, May 8, 2014

Supports protesters in Venezuela and restoring freedoms
Jared Leto and Kevin Spacey have both spoken out in support of Venezuelan democrats. Now another figure joins the ranks. Someone who had been perceived as a Chavez supporter. In November of 2013 the Spanish actor Antonio Banderas in an interview in CNN spoke of Chavez  breaking the corporate grip on power in Venezuela. Today in an interview with Berto Ortiz in Peru the Spanish actor spoke of the situation in Venezuela ( 10:00 - 12:09 ) distancing himself from the Chavez regime describing it as a populism: 
"more as a danger than as a solution because I continue believing in a real democracy..." I think the freedoms of Venezuelans are being steamrolled its what I really think. ..."the Government is curtailing freedom of expression." When asked what message he wanted to give to Venezuelans he said: "Venezuelans, fight for your freedom and do not be enslaved"
