Venezuela World Censorship


South America had been through a rough history. But, Venezuela on the other hand has been the centre of controversy with the rich supply of the natural resources it provides and the controversy has started even before Hugo Chavez (the Socialist President) came to power in 1988. Some of the rough patches have been caused by the internal conflict while the others are derived from the foreign intrusiveness. Lately, the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro experiences some pressure without overseeing the opportunity and has made a way out to block the access of the TOR browser in his country to suppress his disagreement (Venezuela World Censorship).

Nicolas Maduro first came into power as the President of Venezuela after the death of the former President Hugo Chavez in March of 2013. During the Presidency of Maduro, Venezuela has fallen by the wayside in the terms of economic sustainability and growth. There have been massive human rights violations even before the sham election. In the April 2017, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner (OHCHR) had issued a statement censuring the actions of the Maduro regime in the terms of silencing the journalists and blocking access to the outside sources of information. It was believed that he was doing everything to keep his country isolated from the outside sources of information (Venezuela World Censorship).

The large highs in the Tor usage that has originated in Venezuela led up to and since Maduro’s election may have caused the dictator some concern. He had found out innovative ways to cripple Tor that has been revealed by him. Both the direct access and the bridges have been closed by various new methods. Venezuela should have free, open and fair elections which every country on the earth deserves but with Maduro it is not possible.
