Virgen Mary appears to the hunger-strikers at the UN

The night between Wednesday and Thursday this week, between 2 and 3 AM, the Venezuelans in hunger strike in front of the UN building in New York, saw and photographed an appearance of Virgin Mary as “Divina Pastora“. Their demands are for liberty and democracy in Venezuela, the release of all political prisoners; the end of torture, repression, and censorship; free and genuine elections, and all other rights that are guaranteed by the UN declaration of Human Rights. Here is the picture that the photographer sent me, published here for the first time:

On Thursday the original hunger-striker, mayor of San Cristobal, Daniel Ceballos, ended his hunger strike when the regime agreed to release 11 students held as political prisoners. The non-violent resistance movement is still waiting for the names of those released.
