During a recent rally at Washington, several Venezuelan victims of socialism have warned against the dangers of socialism.
“You do not ever want anything close to socialism, People are eating from trash cans in the streets, so how has socialism helped?” a protestor said. “Socialism is a big lie to people who are disadvantaged. It actually makes them worse off.
“It is not a game,” another protestor, who still has family in Venezuela, told the news website. “We always talk about the Nazis … but nobody ever talks about the socialists or communism. It has killed more people than the Nazis did.”
The socialist South American country made headlines after Maduro refused to step down over mounting international pressure.
In mid-January, Venezuela’s duly elected National Assembly declared Maduro’s presidency illegitimate.
But Maduro has refused to give up control.
An exiled Venezuelan Supreme Court chairman, Justice Miguel Angel Martin, told The Epoch Times in a previous interview that Maduro is a “former president” and that the Venezuelan military should “fulfill their duty” and detain the dictator.
In America, protestors in Washington voiced solidarity with those at home.
