We all know Venezuela has problems, like high levels of urban violence, massive inflation and chronic shortages of basic goods. In 2014, a series of protests, political demonstrations, and civil insurrection began in Venezuela.
Nicolas Maduro’s government characterized the protests as an undemocratic coup d’etat attempt orchestrated by “fascist” opposition leaders and the United States, blaming capitalism and speculation for causing high inflation rates and goods scarcities as part of an “economic war” being waged on his government. Although Maduro, a former trade union leader, says he supports peaceful protesting, the Venezuelan government has been widely condemned for its handling of the protests. The majority of protests have been peaceful, consisting of demonstrations, sit-ins, and hunger strikes.
Today US moves towards a ‘Regime Change’ in Venezuela.
US President Donald Trump has said he recognises Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president. The announcement came minutes after the 35-year-old declared himself acting leader in Caracas on Wednesday. A number of South American countries, including Brazil, Colombia and Peru, have also recognised Mr Guaidó as Venezuela’s legitimate president.
Nicolas Maduro announced his government is breaking off diplomatic ties with the United States after Trump recognizes opposition leader. President Nicolas Maduro called American diplomats to leave the country within 72 hours after President Trump recognized opposition leader Juan Guaidó as interim president.
Also President Donald Trump has promised to use the “full weight” of U.S. economic and diplomatic power to push for the restoration of Venezuela’s democracy. After that Russia warns U.S. against military intervention in Venezuela.
