Venezuela on Fire

The Country of Venezuela is on fire. Students went out to March to protest changes made by the Government they didn't like and fire has broken out. Venezuela is divided by the Opposition and the Supporters of the current government. The clashes on the street have been ending lives of young souls searching for their voices to be heard. Young people like Genesis Carmona have been killed in the streets of Venezuela. She was just a opposition follower who took to the streets in a peaceful demonstration and it turned sour. Genesis was killed. In her twitter account she had made comments about life stating : " Amable , pero no tonta! " That means she with Nice but not not Stupid if we translate into English. She was just a 22 year old college student trying to express her views in Venezuela.

The clashes are increasing and the college students are still going out to express their views. This is the international political buzz occurring in South America. This controversy is on going and Florida Congressman Mario Diaz- Balart has even spoken on the issue in Washington. You can see the video at : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w2hWq5ZJ2LQ .

These clashes will be having an impact regionally and not just for the people of Venezuela. This country is one of five top suppliers of oil to the United States. So there is major unrest in Venezuela and this will impact the whole region. What will be the results? Only time will tell.
