Venezuelan Protesters Ask Oscar Winners to Speak Up


Hollywood’s brightest are descending on the Dolby Theatre this evening for the 86th annual Academy Awards, but some Venezuelans are hoping they haven’t finished writing their acceptance speeches quite yet

Rallying under the hashtag #OscarsForVenezuela, Venezuelan protesters and journalists are tweeting at leading Oscar nominees to ask they mention the country when accepting their awards

“Oscars in #Venezuela are televised repression isn’t. Celebrities can accomplish what our media can’t #SOSVenezuela,” tweeted the Venezuelan journalist Mariana Atencio.

@TheEllenShow Venezuela will see The Oscars help with your voice against violence #OscarsForVenezuela #Oscars2014
