A Sistema violinist is injured in Venezuela violence

Wuilly Arteaga, a Sistema violinist who plays his instrument in anti-government protests, has posted a video of his bullet-swollen face, pledging continued defiance.

He was hit by a volley from armed police.

‘Neither rubber bullets nor pellets will stop us,’ tweets Wuilly.

Reuters video report here.

Attacks on musicians are becoming routine in the escalating chaos fomented by the Maduro regime. Gustavo Dudamel spoke out last week, calling for an end to the bloodshed. This appears to be the regime’s instant response.
