    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the issue of physics laboratory head Claudio Mendoza's demotion after commenting on the Venezuelan government's nuclear policy issues. His sarcastic suggestions in an article to promote a science-related play raised concerns from societies promoting freedom of speech. The event has raised the concern that the government is now extending its campaign against freedom of speech in the research community.
