Venezuelan Protestors Prepare to Launch a Shit Bomb Protest

At least 37 people have died in protests against the Venezuelan government and President Nicolás Maduro, and the tense and often violent demonstrations are showing no signs of slowing down. Maduro has recently called for re-writing the Venezuela’s constitution and just a few days ago a video showed protesters destroying a statue of Venezuela’s former president, Hugo Chávez.

In addition to the 37 deaths, The Guardian also reports that “another 717 people have been injured and 152 are still in jail from the hundreds rounded up in widespread unrest across the country.” Most of the deaths have been because of gunshots, and this week a 20-year-old was shot in the head.

Now protesters have decided to organize what they are deeming the “shit march.”

A flyer circulating on social media reads, “They have gas; we have excrement,” And the shit bombs are being called “puputovs,” an homage to the molotov cocktail.

The Guardian, speaking with a dentist who is planning on throwing shit at the government forces, said, “The kids go out with just stones. That’s their weapon. Now they have another weapon: excrement. One of my patients is collecting excrement from her child.”

Rafael Guzmán, a lawmaker who was recently spotted at a protest hurling teargas canisters back at the police, also told The Guardian,  “They use their weapons against us, so people are using what they have.”

This isn’t the first time protesters in Venezuela have thrown feces at the police, but this is likely the first organized shit-throwing protest. The government officially declared that puputovs are a type of biological weapon.

Parts of the Venezuelan military have already begun to defect and join the protesters. We imagine the idea of jars of shit being hurled their way will inspire more to throw up the deuce.
