All those Labor lefty Union types, hyperventilating about Toyota pulling out of Australia in 2017, read and weep. Glenn Reynolds,VENEZUELA: “Huge Demonstrations.”
CFMEU bikie pro Government heavies opened fire on anti government protesters: Gunfire erupted in downtown Caracas when armed members of a pro-government vigilante group arrived on motorcycles and began firing at more than 100 anti-Maduro student protesters clashing with security forces.
As the crowd fled in panic, one demonstrator fell to the ground with a bullet wound in his head. Onlookers screamed “assassins” as they rushed the 24-year-old student, later identified by family members as Bazil D’Acosta, to a police vehicle.
Also killed was the leader of a pro-government 23rd of January collective, as militant supporters of Venezuela’s socialist administration call themselves. National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello said the “revolutionary” known by his nickname Juancho was “vilely assassinated by the fascists” but he didn’t provide details.

Consider this timeline for Toyota Australia, which announced this week it would stop making cars here in 2017.
There are huge demonstrations going on right now, in Caracas,
And in other cities …
