Gianni Scovino (33 years old) is a young man with asperger, collaborator of the Foundation La Tortuga, participant of the punk scene and diffuser of articles on the anarchism in his YouTube channel S3 7 where he usually posts videos in English and Spanish.

On July 13, 2017, he was savagely assaulted by officials of the Bolivarian National Police (PNB) and the Bolivarian National Guard (GNB) while recycling waste for the Tortuga Foundation in the vicinity of the parking lot of the Plaza Mayor de Lecherías Mall in the state of Anzoategui . The beating he received was recorded in the following video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5e5NDx7Ues

After being beaten by the GNP and GNB with shields, kicks and blows he was retained for 36 hours in the 521 Detachment of Zone Command Number 51 of the GNB before being transferred to a care center; Currently his health is improving and is in the Hospital of the Venezuelan Institute of Social Insurance "Doctor Domingo Guzman Lander" of Barcelona.

From Venezuela, we make an international call to fellow anarchists not to be indifferent to the aggressions that the Venezuelan population is suffering, silence is complicity with a dictatorship, which does not stop being such because it is self-described as being "of the left."
