Venezuelan opposition lawmaker Julio Borges talks about his experience being attacked by members of the ruling political party in his country after protesting a ban on opposition members speaking in the National Assembly.

He believes the regime is unsustainable and hopes to “move the conscience of the Venezuelan people” and ignite change.
