So the coup attempt is on.
Caracas, April 30, 2019 (venezuelanalysis.com) - A military coup attempt is underway in Venezuela on Tuesday, April 30, with imprisoned right wing leader Leopoldo Lopez, and self-proclaimed “Interim President” Juan Guaido and some members of the armed forces blocking a highway in Caracas and calling on the military to rise up
The important clue in this article is in the last paragraph:
Guaido had previously called for the “largest march in Venezuela’s history” scheduled for Wednesday May 1, while a Chavista march celebrating workers’ day was also expected to take place.
So is the point of this coup attempt to keep International Working People's Day from happening? Presumably the "rebel" troops are going to use live ammunition on anyone who shows up? I guess they had enough numbers to spring Leopoldo Lopez from his cell.
Anyone got any other news on this?
