Leopoldo López

Toma de Caracas

Quizá nadie lea esto, pero aquí va. Como el mundo sabe, Venezuela actualmente está viviendo una etapa de crisis económica y humanitaria, para nadie es un secreto. Este primero de septiembre de 2016, la oposición venezolana convocó una manifestación masiva en Caracas, para solicitar el referéndum revocatorio al presidente Nicolás Maduro, con el cual quedaría destituido de su cargo. A las personas que irán a marchar por Venezuela les digo muchas gracias por estar allí, y les deseo toda la suerte del mundo. A los venezolanos que por alguna u otra razón no pudimos estar, les pido que compartan toda la información posible a través de sus redes sociales, y lo mismo le pido a la comunidad internacional. Que se sepa que esto está pasando, y es una realidad en Venezuela, porque es triste saber que el hogar del hombre que libertó cinco naciones está luchando prácticamente solo. Les pido que por favor compartan toda la información posible, y que esto se sepa. Que el mundo esté al tanto de lo que sucede en mi país.

Venezuela's hardliner reappears as Nicolás Maduro expels US officials

After four days out of the public eye, Venezuela’s opposition hardliner Leopoldo López has appeared in a video asking his compatriots to join him in a march on Tuesday to demand a halt to repression that followed Wednesday’s deadly protests.

After the circulation of López’s message, President Nicolás Maduro took to the airwaves to denounce US interference in Venezuelan sovereignty while vowing to apply the full weight of law to López and his upcoming protest. He also said he had ordered the expulsion of three US consular officials who, he said, had been conspiring against his government.

In a pre-recorded message, López said he would demand that the interior minister acknowledge the state’s responsibility for Wednesday’s deaths. The former mayor [of Chacao] also said he would present himself to authorities that have issued an order for his arrest.

“I will present myself. I have nothing to fear. I have committed no crime. I have been a Venezuelan with deep commitments towards my country and my people”, said López in a three-minute video that circulated widely trough social media networks.

The government issued a warrant for López’s arrest on Thursday following nationwide demonstrations that left three dead after opposition protesters clashed with security forces.

President Nicolás Maduro has blamed López for leading a coup against his government with the aid of the US . The charges against him range from acts of vandalism to terrorism.

In an indistinct room, with a blurred painting in the background, the US-educated politician pledged to continue street actions alongside the Venezuelan people, while acknowledging he faces the risk of being jailed.

Late on Saturday night, López’s home and that of his parents were raided by security forces in search of the head of Voluntad Popular, a small breakaway opposition party that gained significant ground in the December regional elections.

In his broadcast Maduro denounced the US and López, and said the unidentified consular officials had been part of a conspiracy against his administration.

“It’s a group of US functionaries who are in the universities,” Maduro said. “We’ve been watching them having meetings in the private universities for two months. They say they go there to offer visas.

“Let them go conspire in Washington,” he said.

Maduro said US government officials had warned him that Lopez’s arrest could have “very negative consequences” and exhorted all legal actions against López to be dropped.

“I accept no threats from anyone in this world”, Maduro said. “There will be no force that will detain us in our pursuit of justice and in our fight against fascism … We are willing to go to the last consequences in our defence of peace and sovereignty.”

Referring to López as a fascist, Maduro warned that he was behind Nazi-like plans that could embroil Venezuela in further civil strife.
