|Facing elections in Venezuela's new normal, opposition asks: Do we want in?|
|Since April, Venezuela's opposition coalition seemed to be gaining the kind of support and momentum it was long criticized for lacking. Its calls for peaceful protests and boycotts were met by a broad, consistent turnout, and an unofficial referendum it organized in July led more than 7 million Venezuelans at home and abroad to condemn the increasingly authoritarian moves of President Nicolás Maduro's government. The coalition was making powerful promises, like plans to set up a parallel government if President Maduro moved forward with a July 30th vote to create a Constituent Assembly. |

|Fallout from modern protests: naming and shaming online|
|When hundreds of white supremacists rallied in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend in their largest public appearance in decades, it put faces to ideologies that have become increasingly high-profile over the past year. In response to the rally - which descended into violence in clashes with counter-protesters that left 19 injured and one counter-protester, Heather Heyer, dead - various online crowdsourced campaigns have been trying to publicly shame and punish individual protesters. Some observers have long-criticized such online shaming campaigns as little more than mistake-prone mob vigilantism energized by social media. |
