For those who have been paying scant attention to the news-worthy articles tucked between Trump headlines, the on-going humanitarian crisis in Venezuela may be but a blip on an already disorienting radar screen. However, with the pending collapse of President Nicolas Maduro’s government looking more inevitable as the days pass, along with limits to immigration being high on the agenda of many countries, this is a crisis to which we should all be paying attention.

Each day, Venezuelans are dying from malnutrition and treatable diseases due to hyperinflation that’s driving up prices and causing severe shortages of basics like food and medicine. The callous mindset that rules in Caracas was once again placed on international display this past week when President (and dictator) Maduro and his wife dined on the finest cuts of beef at an expensive soirée in Istanbul while his own people were starving back in Venezuela.

    Thanks Chris. This is important, and why it’s being ignored by mainstream media maybe even more important.

      Yes, I think you’re right, George.

      The reason it’s being ignored by mainstream media is because it’s a genuinely important story.

    It’s a human tragedy in enormous proportions… I for one follow it. It is very odd it doesn’t make mainstream news often. It’s also so hard to comprehend why??? Why the leadership of the country has no heart, no intellect to make a change… Is greed for power and wealth so powerful you can see your own people suffer. I just don’t understand it. I had a patient whose parents were telling me that it’s something about the constitution being able to be changed so often. My sympathies for the brave and suffering people in Venezuela.
