The Power of Freedom

I am currently working on a long form video project for one of my final broadcast journalism courses at  BU. And it’s becoming more than just a class assignment. I am so driven to do every little bit that I can to help bring this story into American perspective and emphasize the huge issue at hand. If violence and protests that result in deaths and unjust imprisonments are not enough to garner attention, understanding the Latin American country of Venezuela and its neighbors which lie so closely to the U.S. should help to see the flashing SOS signals in this country.

Below please read a passionate post by classmate Dany Vazquez and her cry for freedom:

The Meaning of Freedom.

Throughout the next month I’ll be posting links, photos and videos from journalists, experts and people being affected by the tragedy in Venezuela as well as my own work.

Hundreds protested against the violence in Venezuela on February 22 at Copley Square in Boston, MA. This is a still from one of my many video clips from that afternoon.
