Rising up
(for Venezuela)

A protest in solidarity with the people of Venezuela who took the streets to demand the end of a 19-year-old dictatorial regime. Citizens protested pacifically almost daily from April until July 2017 and were met with violent military repression from the regime. 

 

We stood up in slow motion for 18 minutes, for the 18 years of the regime, in hope that Venezuela will also rise from its current situation.
