On May 20, 2018, Venezuelans will be called to a new electoral process. Four opponents will try to displace the current president, Nicolas Maduro, in an election that will be overseen by 2,000 observers from five continents, along with organizations such as the African Union, Caricom and the Electoral Experts Council of Latin America.
This democratic appointment, however, is already being boycotted by the political and media arms of powerful groups nationally and internationally denouncing the results before they have even been announced.
In this tense political context, we – citizens of the world, targeted by the great international media corporations – claim our right to be informed in a plural, balanced and honest way about the upcoming events in Venezuela.
