Red Bull Air Force: End your Venezuela visit and raise your voice for human rights instead

This petition had 677 supporters

While hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans take to the streets to protest against President Maduro’s brutal regime in one of the deadliest episodes of social unrest in Venezuela’s history, Red Bull Air Force, sponsored by a chavista-owned company, are visiting the socialist country to give world-class skydiving lessons to the President’s family.

This is not only utterly insensitive but also immoral. We need to raise our voice now.

We urge Stefan Kozak, Red Bull’s CEO and the skydiving crew to walk away from all its commitments with President Maduro’s regime and instead use their profile to raise the voices of the Venezuelan people who are suffering as a result of severe food and medicine shortages, rampant criminality, skyrocketing inflation and a heavily-censored media.

By the time the Red Bull Air Force team arrived in Venezuela to entertain the presidential family, almost 40 people had been killed, 700 injured and more than 1500 jailed in the context of nationwide anti-regime protests.

We also urge the skydiving team to show what's really happening in Venezuela to their thousands of social media followers. They cannot remain oblivious to this reality.

Global companies such as Red Bull can no longer afford to remain ‘neutral’ when doing business with authoritarian rulers.

Red Bull, take this opportunity to set your record straight in Venezuela.
