Venezuela: People gather outside La Carlota after Guaido’s announcement

Venezuela, Bolivarian Republic of, Caracas
April 30, 2019 at 13:30 GMT -00:00 · Published

People took to the streets outside La Carlota airbase in Caracas on Tuesday, where earlier Juan Guaido had announced the "final phase" of the "Operation Freedom", meant to remove President Nicolas Maduro from office, reportedly backed by the military force.

Footage shows people walking and riding motorcycles outside of the airbase in what is believed to be a support act for Guaido. According to reports, teargas canisters were lobbed at the protesters.

Guaido has repeatedly called for an uprising and on Tuesday morning he released a video asking for support from the military airbase.

Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez said on Twitter that Venezuela is "confronting and deactivating a small group of military traitors who positioned themselves to promote a coup d'etat against the constitution and the peace of the Republic," and called on citizens to resist them.

Venezuela has been in a political crisis since January 23, when Guaido declared himself president in a move now recognized by over 50 countries including the United States as well as the European Union.
