Photo: Former Miss Universe (Venezuela 2009), Stefanía Fernández,
Former Miss Universe (Venezuela 2009), Stefanía Fernández, was photographed crying bloody tears, bruised up, covered in dirt, bound, and gagged with a grief-stricken look in her eyes while wearing her crown to illustrate the raw pain the people of her country of Venezuela are currently undergoing.
This image is part of a photo shoot by fashion photographer, Daniel Bracci for the Un Mundo sin Mordaza campaign (meaning a world without a gag indicating that *Your Voice is Your Power*). An organization promoting freedom of speech and paying tribute to Venezuela’s fallen killed by the government’s militia when they were fighting for peace.
There’s nothing beautiful about the atrocities being practiced by Venezuelan President, Nicolás Maduro enforcing the law by annihilating peaceful protesters and residents who do not support his political views and oppose his human rights violations. Since he took office Venezuela’s condition has only gone downward with inflation up by 57% and the country is in a chaotic situation. Maduro demands his soldiers to terrorize those who are not with him. And the people have had enough. Daniel Bracci (see image below) is pictured holding a sign with four hashtags that read #rediseñandounpais (redesigning a country), #fashion4peace, #prayforvenezuela and #iamyourvoicevenezuela.
