Dundee, 14th April 2014 (Venezuelanalysis.com) – Thirty Venezuelan military officers of different ranks, including several generals, have been arrested for alleged conspiracy to overthrow President Nicolas Maduro, a leading national newspaper has reported.
London, 1st April 2014 (Venezuelanalysis.com) – Venezuelan police and military forces have managed to clear militant opposition street barricades from the main avenues of the city of San Cristóbal, official and independent sources confirm.
In the early hours of Monday morning, Venezuela’s armed forces carried out a swift and precise operation that saw the state’s security apparatus restore order to the municipality of Chacao in the capital of Caracas.
On the weekend civilians marched with National Bolivarian Guard (GNB) soldiers, and today the government declared part of Caracas “free” from violent protests. The march came as private media heightened its false statements about GNB actions.
A Venezuelan media worker describes the harassment the National Guard has put up with over the last few weeks, looks at the class composition behind the situation, and expresses concern over what the opposition tactic is aiming for.
