Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Gianni Scovino is a young man of 33 with Asperger’s syndrome and a
member of the Turtle Foundation (Fundación La Tortuga
[http://www.fundacionlatortuga.org/]), a participant in the punk scene,
and an anarchist media activist using materials from El Libertario
[Venezuela’s primary anarchist periodical] on his Youtube channel
(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt5E7TuSaxrHPyoXF07LlZg/videos), where
he puts up videos in both Spanish and English.

On July 13, he was savagely assaulted by members of the Bolivarian
National Police (Policía Nacional Bolivariana [PNB]) and the Bolivarian
National Guard (Guardia Nacional Bolivariana [GNB]) in the parking lot
of the Grand Central Commercial Dairy Plaza (Centro Comercial Plaza
Mayor de Lecherías) in the state of Anzoátegui while he was on a
recycling run for the Turtle Foundation. A video of the attack is
available on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5e5NDx7Ues
