Juan Guaido

More massive protests are planned for Venezuela this week. Self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido tweeted over the weekend he wants supporters to hit the streets Wednesday and Saturday in a show of force against President Nicolas Maduro. Guaido also said his opposition party was in talks with military officials to kick out Maduro. Guaido declared himself acting president last week, claiming Maduro was illegitimately elected for a second term. Maduro blames all this upheaval on what he considers to be a US-led “coup” attempt.
