“Latin America: Deaf, Dumb, and Blind to Crisis in Venezuela” by Carlos Sabino

Editorial by Carlos Sabino on the lack of response by Latin American countries to the critical situation in Venezuela.   Panamá remains the only country to demand the OAS  (Organization of American States) intervene.   As a result, Venezuelan President Maduro severed economic and diplomatic ties with Panamá on Wednesday.   This was the statement released to the press by President Martinelli of Panamá, in response.  It is important to acknowledge, that Venezuela was one of the most vocal countries in calling for investigations of violent suppression of peaceful demonstrations in Panamá, in the mid to late 1980s.
