do you hear the people sing?

It is the music of the people
Who will not be slaves again

For years, Venezuelans have been fighting to survive. For years, we’ve been ignoring them. We can’t ignore it any more

The largest protest in the Western Hemisphere is happening in our own backyard. This is not a world away; these are our neighbors. Their wellbeing directly affects us. We can’t keep pretending we live in a bubble and unpleasant things are not happening if we don’t acknowledge them. People are dying for liberty in Venezuela; the least we can do is look.
