Thousands Of Venezuelans Marching In Direction Of Maduro’s Presidential Palace

Tim Pearce on April 30, 2019

Thousands of Venezuelan protesters are marching in the direction of the Presidential Palace in Caracas as National Assembly President Juan Guaido leads a military revolt against Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro.

Guaido initiated “Operation Liberty” Tuesday morning as a final push to oust Maduro from power. Guaido has persuaded part of the Venezuelan military to back his revolt and armed conflict has erupted between Guaido’s and Maduro’s military forces.

WATCH:

Protesters are marching westward along a main highway from La Carlota air base, where Guaido first initiated “Operation Liberty.” The Miraflores Palace, the presidential residence, stands approximately five miles from La Carlota air base. The destination of the protesters is unclear.

Protesters and security forces have clashed throughout Caracas. Security forces have used tear gas and gunfire to attempt to disperse protesters. In one instance, Maduro-backed military personnel rammed a crowd of protesters with a truck, appearing to injure several.

The Maduro-regime has reportedly shut down at least one media outlet in Caracas since the revolt began. Radio Caracas Radio, a local station located in Venezuela’s capital, tweeted Tuesday morning that federal regulators ordered the station to quit broadcasting.

The United States and several other countries have denounced Maduro and publicly supported Guaido’s revolt.

  • Lets give all the illegal immigrants guns and return them to Venezuela to fight for the freedoms they came here for.

  • Give Maduro safe passage out of Venezuela only if he takes the carcass of Hugo Chavez with him (but no money in overstuffed luggage).

  • Now do you see how back a$$wards the American liberals are? Instead of sending United States food Aid which the communist's burned ,they should have sent arms, for the people to fight for there freedom??enough said.
