Venezuelan activists call for help in Vatican

At the end of Wednesday's General Audience, several protesters hoisted Venezuelan flags. With such actions, they try to raise international awareness to show the public their country's dire situation.  At the end of October last year, the Vatican participated in facilitating dialogue between the government and the opposition. However, the  negotiations failed. POPE FRANCIS "It did not succeed because the proposals were not accepted, or were diluted, or it was a 'yes, yes' but then a 'no, no.'â?  Social networks have become one of the greatest drivers in showing the tension taking root in the country. In recent weeks, more than 50 people have been killed during demonstrations against the government. JRB/JC MG / RR - F -BN Up: JC
