‘This was HIS model’ Terror of life inside Corbyn’s socialist paradise of Venezuela

HORRIFYING footage has revealed the brutal reality of life in socialist Venezuela, a country once championed by Jeremy Corbyn as a country Britain could “learn” from.

Sickening video shows armoured tanks running over protestors in the street, and people being brutally beaten and detained by security forces.

The opening clip shows a police officer in riot gear storming towards a woman filming a protest and ordering her to switch off her phone.

After she asks why, the camera suddenly drops to the floor as the woman is apparently attacked by an unseen person.

n another clip a man man is shot at close range by police using rubber bullets.

The two-minute video report by Human Rights Watch (HRW) was released following months of widespread protests in the South American country against President Nicolas Maduro’s increasingly authoritarian regime.

The government has responded with a brutal crackdown on its own people, resulting in the deaths of more than 90 people since April, according to the HRW.

José Miguel Vivanco, Americas director at Human Rights Watch, said: “When you see images of the repression, the government’s narrative about a violent coup-plotting opposition falls apart.

“Regional leaders should use this evidence to send a clear message to Venezuelan officials and security forces that these actions will not be tolerated and that those responsible will eventually be held accountable.”

The violence has been condemned by leaders from around the world – but one voice conspicuous by its absence has been that of Mr Corbyn.

The Labour leader has previously spoken about his admiration for Venezuelan socialism, and was a vocal supporter of former president Hugo Chavez.

So far, he has failed to comment on the atrocities being carried out by the country’s government.
