Things Are So Bad In Venezuela That People Are Walking To Brazil For Medicine

The humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, marked by over a year of shortages, is so bad that people are walking over the border into Brazil to get the food and medicines they need. Juan Barreto / AFP / Getty Images A new Human Rights Watch report based on interviews conducted with 60 Venezuelans in February shows how the country's worsening humanitarian crisis has spilled over the Brazilian border. The interviewees said they left Venezuela because they lacked the means to buy food and medicine there, and because of the country's growing crime rate. Venezuelan Geraldine Dhil, 32, walked 125 miles to the Brazilian city of Boa Vista, hoping to find a job there so she can buy medicine for her 13-year-old daughter, who has cancer. Barbara Rosales, 21, was six months pregnant when she went to a Venezuelan hospital in Santa Elena de Uairén.

Venezuelans Are Trying To Crowdfund Money To Leave The Country

Dozens of accounts have been set up in recent months by Venezuelans on the crowdfunding platform Generosity. Thousands of people in Venezuela have taken to the streets in protest as opposition groups stage nationwide demonstrations demanding early elections. The protests are part of a larger movement that has been growing in Venezuela over the past few weeks. Years of rising oil prices, inflation, and political unrest have thrown Venezuela into turmoil. People face a daily struggle to obtain basic items like food and medicine, and these shortages have created a hugely expensive black market in the country. George Castellanos / AFP / Getty Images Things have gotten so bad now that Venezuelans are turning to crowdfunding platforms to raise enough money so they can leave the country. generosity.com Gutierrez told BuzzFeed News she's "always had the dream of traveling overseas for a better capacity of music and arts" but that the worsening situation in Venezuela has held h..

The State Department Wrote About Mar-A-Lago And People Are Not Happy

The condensed version of a blog post explaining the history of Trump’s private club, which the article called “the winter White House,” went viral on Monday. President Donald Trump has spent the vast majority of his weekends since taking office at Mar-a-Lago, his private estate in Palm Beach, Florida. The White House has argued that the estate counts as a "winter White House" or "Southern White House." Critics have said that this is a way to downplay Trump's historically high number of trips away from Washington in the early days of his administration. Nicholas Kamm / AFP / Getty Images The Trump administration has also argued that Mar-a-Lago serves as an alternative to Camp David, a US-owned property, for hosting foreign dignitaries. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the first world leader to be spirited away to the club, which charges a $200,000 members fee. Susan Walsh / AP A post earlier this month on ShareAmerica, a US government site, laid out the history ..

This Anti-Abortion Leader Is Charged With Laundering Money From Azerbaijan

Vano Shlamov / AFP / Getty Images A former Italian lawmaker with links to some of the largest social conservative organizations in the US and Europe is under investigation for allegedly accepting millions in exchange for helping muzzle Europe’s top human rights body. The lawmaker’s name is Luca Volonté, and until 2013 he led the largest bloc in what’s called the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. Since leaving elected office, Volonté has been a major player in circles of “pro-family” activists working to build an international movement. He served as the chairman of the Dignitatis Humanae Institute when it hosted a video address inside the Vatican in 2014 by Steve Bannon, then Breitbart’s executive chairman and now President Donald Trump’s top strategist.

How Russia Hacked Obama’s Legacy

No one from the Obama administration seems to remember when they figured out they were falling victim to one of the greatest intelligence operations in history. "This was the kind of realization that came incrementally," a former senior State Department official told BuzzFeed News. "There wasn’t a moment where you realized that Pearl Harbor had been hit by kamikaze or that the World Trade Center has been hit." Now, as two congressional committees and the FBI investigate Russia's role in the election, former Obama officials find themselves grappling with a new legacy, one that formed at the 11th hour of their time in power. As they looked toward a world where pariahs like Iran and Cuba were won over with diplomacy, they fell victim to a sneak attack by an old adversary. And they let it happen, offering up stern warnings and finger-wagging instead of adequately punishing Russia for achieving something that even the Soviet Union at the height of its power couldn’t manage: meddling in..

Chinese Social Media Calls For Boycott Of United Airlines

Via Twitter: @JoeWongComedy BEIJING — Millions of Chinese people have expressed their anger on social media over reports that an Asian-American man was dragged off a United Airlines plane — with many calling it racism, and some even demanding a boycott of the airline. Pictures and videos of the man, with blood pouring from his mouth, were shared on the microblog service Weibo, after an eyewitness report the man said he was targeted by United Airlines because he was Chinese. Americans were quick to slam the airline for mistreating a passenger — but in China, where patriotic consumers and state media are highly sensitive to any signal that foreign companies are unfairly taking advantage of Chinese consumers, the incident took on a different color. On Tuesday afternoon, the Chinese hashtag “United Airlines forces passenger off a plane” was the top trending tag on microblog service Weibo, with 169 million views and hundreds of thousands of posts. Many social media users in China saw the ..
