As the death toll from Venezuelan opposition protests continues to rise, “The Empire Files” host Abby Martin lashed out at international media for their one-sided portrayal of the violence.
In her latest episode, Martin condemns the coverage of right-wing protesters as “romantic” and insists “there certainly is a right to protest” in Venezuela.
As part of the program, Martin spent three weeks in Caracas and attended both opposition and Chavista demonstrations.
In one opposition demonstration, protesters maneuvered three trucks to block a highway, burnt tires and hurled rocks at security forces. The protesters told her to “only film repression against them, not their actions,” she says.
