Venezuelan government searches and punishes those who sign anti-government petitions

Starving Venezuelans are circulating petitions to recall their president and other officials who impose the horrors of socialism upon them.

The Venezuela Constitution provides for such recall petitions.

“Nearly two million Venezuelans have signed the recall petition.”

President “Maduro’s underlings are unjustly harassing and even arresting citizens circulating the recall petition — just as previous electoral opponents of the regime have been arrested on trumped-up charges and often sentenced to long prison terms.”

“Now, Pres. Maduro has ordered five high cabinet minsters to review the recall petitions for the names of government workers in their employ and to fire any workers found to have actually used their rights.”
