A year ago today, #Venezuela awoke to shocking developments.

Opposition leader Juan Guaido was outside La Carlota military base in Caracas with a group of soldiers. He was joined by Leopoldo Lopez, who'd been freed from house arrest overnight.

A coup was underway.
Lopez, who'd been in custody since 2014, tweeted pictures from the scene and said that "the definitive phase" in the struggle against the Maduro gov't was at hand.

The men waited outside the base throughout the morning, though it was not clear for what.

Before long, residents eager to show their support for the opposition joined Guaido, Lopez and the small group of soldiers. So did gov't supporters, and a firefight erupted.

1/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

I accept several followers may block me after this statement, but that doesn't make it any less important to confront partisans with the truth, or spark debate when a Canadian political party becomes a threat to democracy & human life
2/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Once upon a time the @NDP repped the conscience of bleeding hearts, democracy & diversity, but that party exists no more

In its wake is a hollow shell that is now directed by disinfo campaigns on Facebook, in lieu of facts & reality
@NDP 3/25 #CDNpoli #Thread RE Implosion of #NDP

Curiously @theJagmeetSingh has proven to be out of touch with political events & indifferent to the best interests of his constituency

One example of this ego-driven defiance is opposition to the new #NAFTA at the direct cost of unions

@JuntosEsMejorVE @USAID @the_IDB @jguaido @AtlanticCouncil @jmarczak @AmbassadorGreen @JohnBarsa @iariashofman The situation in #Venezuela is dire, and millions of people are suffering the adverse effects of the #Maduro regime. So much so that when @ACLatAm in a recent poll asked Venezuelans if they would leave their country if they could, about 1/3 said yes, notes @jmarczak #TogetherVE.

@AtlanticCouncil @AmericoDeGrazia @Miguel_Pizarro @DWStweets @RepRooney @NTN24 @EmilianaMolinaF @jmarczak @DiegoArea Venezuelans are undeterred In the aftermath of Nicolás Maduro's most recent abuse of power. They, and many of their representatives in the National Assembly, have united behind interim President #JuanGuaidó, reports @Miguel_Pizarro. #ACVenezuela.
@AtlanticCouncil @AmericoDeGrazia @Miguel_Pizarro @DWStweets @RepRooney @NTN24 @EmilianaMolinaF @jmarczak @DiegoArea The regime is doing what it can to confuse, to mislead, to frustrate the efforts of the international community to stay abreast of developments in #Venezuela. The only solution is to stand firm in the face of this adversity, urges @Miguel_Pizarro. #ACVenezuela.

1/ #Venezuela’s failed uprising has deepened the country's political deadlock and raised the likelihood of domestic or international escalation.

Our statement explains its immediate impact and proposes a way forward.…
2/ The revolt appears to have been poorly conceived and easily subdued, leaving National Assembly chair @jguaido and his regional allies, including the #US, looking outmanoeuvred.
3/ On the chavista side of the divide, President #Maduro and his international partners may well feel empowered and emboldened, with little incentive to engage in talks with a disorganised and ineffectual opposition.

Venezuela has emerged from the US attacks on its electrical system.
By @MaxBlumenthal
Terrible news for Little @marcorubio @AmbJohnBolton & Guadio’s gang, but great news for the people of Caracas:

The city’s free Metro system is coming back on line as Venezuela recovers from its curiously timed electricity outages.

I was on #SimonBolivar international bridge connecting #Venezuela and #Colombia. #Thread

1. The '#humanitarianaid volunteers' were violent and masked up, unlike any humanitarians I have ever seen.

They also appeared to be aided (no pun intended) by the Colombian authorities.
2. What appeared to be a hand gun was seen with the 'volunteers' on the Colombian side. Y would #Colombian authorites allow a boy masked up to past them with a gun, was it really all about #humanitarianaid?

Or were they sending some kids to do their dirty work. #JustAsking?
3. The local community on the #Venezuela side were supporting their army- cheering on every push back. Clearing the stones after they were thrown at the soldiers and bringing water etc to soldiers on the front line

They didn't seem too welcoming the '#humanitarianaid volunteers'

#Venezuela's #NicolasMaduro:
"We had a large shipment of medicines to last the country for a year,a large batch of raw materials for food. The bank account was frozen,the contracts were cancelled & the money is seized. They suffocate us,steal our money & put a show for the world"
Nov. 2017:The transnational Pharmaceutical companies Baster,Abbot & Pfizer refused to issue exportation certificates to #Cancer drugs,making it impossible for #Venezuela to buy them
July 2017: The Citibank bank (#USA) refuses to receive #Venezuelan funds from the Central Bank for the import of 300 thousand doses of insulin, destined to cover the demand of 450 thousand registered patients.

I recently met with a desperate #Venezuela family about to overstay tourist visa. Dad (professional), mom (professional) and kid. Staying w/ relatives & desperate to find a way not to return to political threats, hunger, utter lack of services, including medical care...
Why me? I have #HumanRights background, a university job & #LatinAmerica experience. Basically bupkus in the terrordome politics of desperate people in Trumpland. But I bought them coffee (and a snowman cookie for a young 'un) and listened...
What separates me from them? Increasingly little. They were upper middle class and now scrounge for off the books manual labor. Would they be killed if they returned? Not immediately -- but slowly: no work, no food, no medicine, no hope. They've become #Refugees ...
