Yesterday afternoon, hundreds of artists from television, film and theater took to the streets of Venezuela to demand their government, Nicolas Maduro, a better crime control in this country.
This demonstration to protest violence, was motivated after the assassination of actress Monica Spear and her husband. The union expressed outrage at what happened and gathered at the gates of the National Assembly, where they delivered a document demanding the government that serves the public safety.
The opposition alliance Mesa de Unidad Democrática (MUD), said that Maduro’s government should review its security policies that “obviously have not been successful.” After these statements, the Venezuelan president summoned a hundred governors and mayors, including opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who, before the alarm due to Spear’s death, proposed a joint fight against crime.
Maduro proposed a peace plan for Venezuela in 2014, in order to deal with high crime rates. Prior to that, the president acknowledged that in late 2013 violence in Venezuela had “dangerous spike.”
