As of last night (or last morning, Venezuela-time), we've been receiving
reports from locals in Venezuela that Tor is being blocked.

State-owned CANTV is reportedly blocking access to Tor and obfs4.

They've been running OONI Probe tests that seem to confirm this, though
it remains unclear if other ISPs in Venezuela are blocking access to Tor
(and Tor bridges) as well.

This follows weeks of increased censorship, particularly targeting media
websites (like lapatilla.com and elpitazo.com).

What strategies would be relevant here?

This may also be something worth thinking about for other countries
where Tor is blocked as well (such as Egypt).
