Four protesters arrested inside the Venezuelan embassy in Washington, DC have been released pending hearing – but could face up to a year in jail for trying to prevent a takeover of the building by the US-backed opposition.

The protesters are “looking forward to the trial,” Kevin Zeese told journalist Anya Parampil after his release, adding that they planned to “make the case that there is a legitimate government, that the Vienna convention was violated, that this was an inappropriate and unlawful arrest.”

Margaret Ann Flowers, Adrienne Pine, and David Vernon Paul were also released. They are due back in court on June 12.

Reality is what the US says it is. The dutiful mainstream media obeys.

The dutiful mainstream is merely another tool in the puppet masters toolbox, like the national government and all of its branches and neo revolutionary cons, it is just another department. Departments led by the elites' henchmen who admit to our face that they lie and steal while pompously omitting that their regime also murder...a lot and support other murderous regimes. You know who they are. If you do not then we are lost.

Thanks Mohammad: As Dave Lefcort mentions in another article on OEN, RT is the only US-MSM organization (apparently) that covered this outrage. Nor did the MSM want to touch with a ten foot pole the racist, sexist and fascistic pro-Guaido mob.

To say nothing of the unlawful intrusion of the Embassy of a sovereign state. Until there are legal actions taken against all of the crimes being committed by this nation our decline to Fascism continues with the outcomes being far more disastrous than what Germany experienced.
