Venezuelans pour into Caracas streets in anti-Maduro protest

Venezuelans pour into Caracas streets in anti-Maduro protest”

" ... Jairo Ortiz died in the hands of this regime".

Protesters clashed with security forces during protests in Venezuela on Saturday after a ban on a top opposition leader from office breathed life into a fractured movement and fueled the first sustained anti-government demonstrations since 2014.

Mr Capriles, who is a former presidential candidate and the governor of the state of Miranda wrote on social media: "URGENT: I inform the country and worldwide public opinion that I am being notified at this very moment of a BAN for 15 years".

Admiral Kurt W. Tidd, the U.S Southern Commander, presented a report this Thursday to the Senate Armed Services Committee, warning that Venezuela might be a destabilizing factor in Latin America. One photo published by newspaper El Nacional showed a barricade comprised of garbage and a torched auto.

On Wednesday night, the president of a leading Venezuelan opposition party took refuge at the residence of the Chilean ambassador in Caracas and asked for protection. "This is how these savages try to prohibit the people from protesting the coup".

United States to boost military defence against N Korea: Trump tells Abe
While submarines are also a stealthy way to do that, North Korea doesn't have enough of them. "The costs are too high". North Korea's aggressive provocations are much more frequent since Kim Jong-un took power.

While the widely condemned decision was quickly overturned, the opposition has stepped up street protests against Mr Maduro, even though such demonstrations have achieved little in the past.

Police who responded to the demonstration were met with improvised incendiary devices, including molotov cocktails. Protesters threw stones. Security officials used tear gas. This would mean he could not run in the next presidential elections, scheduled for 2018, which the opposition has been trying to move them up.

- MIGUEL HENRIQUE OTERO: The editor of El Nacional, the last remaining national newspaper critical of the government, was barred from leaving Venezuela after the powerful head of the socialist party, Diosdado Cabello, sued him for slander for republishing an article from the Spanish newspaper ABC accusing him of ties to drug cartels. Bodyguards escorted opposition leaders through the crowds. Bernal added that Capriles can't say later as a "sissy" that he's a political prisoner when he's persecuted by his remarks. That decision was walked back amid fierce domestic and global criticism, but opposition leaders say it revealed the government's authoritarian nature.

Three opposition legislators from the Amazonia state were previously accused of fraud and ordered to step down from their parliamentary posts, and their refusal to do so is what prompted the Supreme Court to find the National Assembly in contempt for over the past year.

Members of the Maduro government profess to be largely unperturbed by the worldwide outcry and the protests.

Opposition lawmakers launched an effort to impeach the judges on Wednesday. We need to be making ways for Venezuelan officials to feel that there can be a peaceful democratic change in government without it being the end of their lives.

"We have to escape from it by civil protests, exercising our constitutional functions and not giving in to a failed, outlaw government". There was no immediate comment from the government.

In the pro-government march, thousands of people denounced the Organization of American States for criticizing the Venezuelan government over the court move.

"You can shove your disqualification where the sun doesn't shine", said Capriles, flanked by opposition leaders. The historical power of Chavismo is also on Maduro's side, Ramsey told us.

He continued, "They said they were going to concentrate their protests along the Altamira highway, but they already had plans to reach the [Caracas city] centre to create violence".
