Weasel Zippers has posted a letter said to be circulated by the ruling party in Venezuela. In the letter, the government openly threatens journalists — and their families — for covering the anti-government protests.
You have been identified as one of those “journalists” who have been given the task to denounce on Twitter and other medias the work of our defense groups, and has been responsible for demonizing them, creating a matrix of opinion, exposing them to public criticism.
Also of promote destabilizing actions of fascists and stateless groups who seek to overthrow the legitimate government of President Nicolas Maduro, probably financed and paid by the “squalid,” bourgeois right, who has the country on flames.
Be hereby notified that you are fully identified, we know where you live, where you work, you and your family, so we demand you immediately stop the communicational attack you are having against us, or abide to the consequences.
Weasel Zippers has posted an image of the actual letter, which bears this logo.
The Tupamaros are radical leftwing gangsters who have provided shock troop terrorism on behalf of the Chavez/Maduro regime. The threat to journalists is extremely serious.
