“The power of one”

Mahatma Gandhi

“It’s the action, not the fruit of the action, that’s important. You have to do the right thing. It may not be in your power, may not be in your time, that there’ll be any fruit. But that doesn’t mean you stop doing the right thing. You may never know what results come from your action. But if you do nothing, there will be no result.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

Leopoldo López Mendoza (born 29 April 1971 in Caracas) is a Venezuelan politician and economist. From 2000 until 2008, López was the mayor of the Chacao Municipality of Caracas. A 2006 Los Angeles Times article described López as leader of the opposition to Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, as well as a social activist working for “grass-roots judicial reform”.He is sanctioned in Venezuela and cannot run for public office until 2014;however the Inter-American Court of Human Rights sanctioned Chávez for violating the human rights of opposition candidates by disqualifying them from running for administrative reasons in 2010, the court reached a unanimous decision in favour of Lopez.On 18 February 2014, Lopez turned himself into police after addressing a crowd of supporters estimated to be in the thousands protesting the government in the 2014 Venezuelan protests.
