Huge numbers out on the streets of #Caracas against Maduro in protest scheduled weeks beforehand, aided by CIA Regime Change Ops & Cash.

The opposition did not contest the Presidential election because they KNEW they would HEAVILY lose it.

The Opposition Protests were scheduled to coincide with the anniversary of the Coup on January 23 1958 which deposd the Military Dictatorship of Marcos Pérez Jiménez.…

Huge protest against Maduro in a different part of Caracas.

Things are heating up in #Venezuela, aided and abetted by CIA Regime Change Ops & US gov Cash.

We await to see if these opposition protests have any staying power & what the response will be from Maduro supporters.
Venezuela has the largest Oil Reserves of any country in the world.

However they are Heavy Tar Sands deposits, like those in Alberta Canada, & cost a lot to extract & transport.

They need a high oil price to be economic (circa $80 a barrel not the $50 to $60 current price).
It has to be emphasized that the US government NEVER does anything for altruistic purposes and couldn't give a F*** about "Freedom or Democracy".

In fact they much prefer Strong Arm Dictators in Latin America as long as they are "America's Sons-of-Bitches" and not someone else's
Venezuela is right in the middle of a Geopolitical Battleground between the US and China / Russia.

Maduro visited Beijing in September 2018 and secured $5bn of new loans and investment

Venezuela - U.S. Again Tries Regime Change Which Is Again Likely To Fail…

I have just been advised by @Lukewearechange that the 2nd video clip I posted is actually from January 2016.

The opposition are recycling old videos of previous protests as part of their propaganda.

Huge Pro Maduro rally in #Caracas underway now in rejection of attempted US Coup D'Etat & support the legitimate elected government of Venezuela #23Ene


So I'm now being accused of being "a Maduro apologist"
Which is TOTALLY untrue.

I believe Venezuelans should be allowed to sort out the probs in their own Sovereign country, which undoubtedly exist

I was also accused of being "a Saddam apologist" for opposing 2003 Iraq Invasion
Venezuela is in the middle of current Geopolitical Battleground as domination & power of the US Empire has declined since 2000.

Western #Psyops
The massive crowds seen in Caracas yesterday were not protesting against Maduro, they were commemorating the 1958 Coup that overthrew the Military Dictatorship.

There are no banners with pics of opposition leader @jguaido etc.

Pro Maduro protesters (the Red Shirts) yesterday:
Nobody voted for that guy - Juan Guaido. #WeAreMaduro
US intervention is not welcome here.
Analysis of yesterday's developments from a non Corporate media source

The US backed opposition leader @jguaido & his "National Assembly" have a disastrous 70% DISAPPROVAL rating according to this October poll.

Hardly grounds for "a popular uprising" that the Western media & US gov are trying to make you believe.

There IS opposition to Maduro in #Venezuela, however there was little sign of any yesterday.

Attempted Coup Leader @jguaido made a baseless claim to rule, after getting ZERO votes in recent Presidential election.

There was some minor violence last night
