Deadly protests mar Venezuela ballot as voters snub Maduro assemblyBy Alexandra Ulmer and Anggy Polanco CARACAS/SAN CRISTOBAL, Venezuela, (Reuters) – Deadly protests rocked Venezuela on Sunday as voters broadly boycotted an election for a constitutional super-body that unpopular leftist President Nicolas Maduro vowed would begin a “new era of combat” in the crisis-stricken nation.

The measure, based on a similar ballot initiative that passed in Los Angeles three years ago, is backed by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a healthcare and advocacy group devoted to preventing the spread of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Activists seek to put porn actor condom requirement on California ballot

By Michael Fleeman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Healthcare activists critical of adult film industry practices are working to put a measure before California voters next year to require porn actors to use condoms during film production, expanding a Los Angeles County rule that survived a legal challenge. The proposed ballot measure, aimed at protecting actors from sexually transmitted diseases, would require film companies to be licensed by the state and would impose fines of $ 70,000 for offenders. Under a final draft of the measure filed with the state on Tuesday, film companies would have to post warning signs visible to performers stating that California law requires condom use for “all acts of vaginal or anal intercourse during the production of adult films.” “We’re trying to protect both performers as well as those who would interact with performers and keep everybody safer as a result of safe sex,” said Bradley Hertz, an attorney for the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which is sponsoring the measure.
