Dozens of demonstrators trickled in through out the the brisk clear Rochester morning braving 45 mile per hour gusts to stand steady in their support of the people of Venezuela. Kelly Tovar Mullaney organized the event locally sending invitations out on Facebook and other social media outlets to rally the community and get the word out to the masses of what has been going on in her native country. Kelly’s call to action was made in tandem with the website Sinmordaza.org in an effort to raise awareness world wide, and Rochester was just one of hundreds of demonstrations across the globe this pas Saturday.
One of the ways we can all help is sign the current petition to the White house to levy sanctions against the current Venezuelan administration until the human rights violations stop. World wide protests show support, but are empty with out the leverage of our combined voices sending a command for real action to those who have the power to act.
