Venezuelan National Guard Detains 243 Students: Prominent Human Rights Advocate Arrested

Garbage and burnt rubble. That was all that was left of the four improvised student tent camps in eastern Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, after National Guard Troops dismantled them on Thursday. At least 243 student protesters were detained, including Rodrigo Diamanti, the activist credited by some with launching the #SOSVenezuela campaign, which has helped raise media awareness on the current crisis in Venezuela.

Fusion spoke to one of Diamanti’s best friends Martha Polanco, comedian, actress and activist Alejandra Otero, Venezuelan journalist and former student activist Leonor Suárez, Venezuelan writer Raúl Stolk, journalist José Zamora and Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.
