Dear Mr Obama, I am originally from Venezuela, but recently I have become a pro...

The reason I am writing to you, is to implore you, as the President of the freest country in the world , to make all efforts to help resolve the conflict occurring in Venezuela at this moment. My son, a graduate Engineer from the university where this all started, is currently a political prisoner, a scapegoat, in this peaceful quest by the university students for fundamental Freedom of Speech & Human Rights! It is not as a mother that I tell you he is innocent! Those who know what transpired know that he and the other 5 are innocent! It is generally believed that a corrupt faction of the government is fomenting this violence. All that the people really want is the basics of living, food, shelter, Peace and their Human Rights respected. On the whole ,Venezuelans are a peaceful people. It is my firm belief that this government is either inept or corrupt at the core. I am worried that Cuba is further corrupting the Venezuelan government to its' own ends, not the least of which is keeping up the daily flow of 100K barrels a day of oil. You can do something specific. You can halt the 800K barrels a day of oil into the U.S. from Venezuela. This may help to force a change of government that is more democratic, more caring for the people, conservative minded in its' economic growth, bold in its' defense of the liberties & freedom of its' people. Righteous action from you can be the catalyst for change. A change for the betterment of mankind.

Thank you for your attention,
