a number of strikes around the world this week by drivers who say that they're not making a good living anymore and that this business model is no good investors also saw what happened to lift which is biggest competitor lift went public in march and since going public its stock has fallen it has a lot of these same issues that we were is dealing with so investors were very very cautious in this has people raising questions about i.p.o.'s in general and whether or not investors are getting tired of these very fast growing but not so profitable tech companies going forward at the end of the day the i.p.o. valuation the initial public offering put hooper at $82000000000.00 it's still one of the top. ever in the united states but it's a lot lower than what people were expecting just months ago thank you very much kristen salumi in new york. we'd like to bring you more now on venezuela fears of
a crackdown on opposition politicians there this after number of them was stripped of their parliament she and unity after a failed uprising we can speak to. is a deputy in the opposition dominated national assembly now he represents the atari neighborhood in caracas and joins us on the phone from just outside the venezuelan capital thank you very much for taking time to speak to us so as we said a number of opposition politicians have been stripped of that parliamentary immunity we know that iran has been detained are you concerned that there will be more such arrests and detentions off to the attempted uprising. yes thank you martin who are helping me with the truth one won't know that it will be a sloth he said. they could only both see that it is their national anthem the uprooted from did not happen it doesn't help their own to believe that would be for
them dies. off frequency for diplomatic protection extended look at the nations are shouting for unity if they're our girls refuse to press for the work you've been to them or get the care and feeding the invaders so these are the very difficult situation right now persecution and it is canadian but it doesn't appear that it's a quick because you don't have to fear 2 month in these conflicts then you build mobile economical to more than one bed for you to go out across the moat even so a lot of people. i mean i suppose that the problem for the opposition is that one why don't did make a bold risky gamble by making his strongest call yet for military intervention to overthrow the doura you must have anticipated that the government would react to that and that there would be consequences. we are we are we have to have open
