Venezuela citizens tired of this dictator Maduro and want to change their corrupted government. Nothing special
I'm not from there but from what I gathered they had elections and the guy the US hates won the election but the US gov is pretending the other guy who lost the election is the rightful leader and the other guy is a dictator even though he was elected.
So basically the US is trying to put their own guy in so they can control another country.
The US is the modern day Rome only much more powerful with a lot more places under their control. Look at every country the US has military bases in and those are all of its colonies.
Sorry Europe, you guys were all colonized by the US after WW1 and WW2. Ask yourself why no nations have military bases in the US. And if any nation tried to openly have a base here -- there would be such outrage and resistance it would never happen. A free people do not allow other nations to have military bases in their country. Only nations under the control of another have foreign military stationed in their country.
Maduro won the election but the election itself was manipulated.
In order to become a president in Venezuela your presidential win has to be confirmed by the parliament. Because of the manipulation the Venezuelian parliament has not confirmed his presidency, therefore Maduro is not a rightful president.
Juan Guaido is the temporary president confirmed by the parliament, until Maduro is out of power, and until free elections can be estabilished.
That's how South America works
If you aren’t the USA bitch ur people will suffer the consequences
My country is a perfect example
do some research fam, venezuela has oil but its heavy low quality oil and since the oil price is so low now it's hard to turn profit after refining it
in south america they blame americans for everything bad
I'm Venezuelan, living in Chile for the past year.
Okay, its not a secret that these 20 years of "revolution" has been a literal hell, specially these past weeks (there was a blackout COUNTRYWIDE for 6 days straight, lootings everywhere, no police, no nothing)
So, what is going on?
Last year, Maduro called for presidential elections, in these elections he made it impossible for any party associated with the right or opposition to run a candidate, it was only Maduro and a few others that were associated with him.
It's important to say that the CNE (the organism in charge of the elections) is strongly and publicly in favor of maduro.
So, these elections were not recognized by international entities because there were no international witnesses, or right parties witnesses. There were NO people voting anywhere yet they say 70% of the population voted as #21 said.
Needless to say, maduro "won".
The National Assembly (only organism NOT controlled by Maduros ppl) said the elections were null and called a void in power (there was no president). Our constitution says that if that happens, the president of the National Assembly has to take charge and call for elections etc.
Enter Juan Guaido.
The USA has been suporting and counseling him since the beggining, and tho im sure they have a reason to, Oil, Power, money, i really dont care.
People is dying every single day and dictatorships dont go away peacefully. We need all the help we can get.
they are getting rid of their cancer dictator president
Venezuela went from the richest Latin American country to now the poorest due to Maduro mismanagement and made himself a dictator and with food and medicine shortages resulting in mass migration of venezuelans which over a million went to colombia. Maduro gets reelected which was declared rigged and illegitimate by the international community which probably was. Then near the end of January came Juan Guaido who declared himself as the Venezuela's legitimate president. Then support came soon after with USA, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Costa Rica, Panama, the Bahamas, DR, Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, and Canada being the first nations to recognize him. USA likely had nothing to do with this at all despite past involvement in LA nation politics in the past. Then Russia, China, and Turkey declared support for Maduro followed by multiple others like Syria, El Salvador, and Iran. Mexico also declared support for Maduro but retracted that decision and went into neutrality. 52-54 nations currently support Guaido while only 22 support Maduro.
That's what they get for being such a weak country. The oil will be under our control soon.! BAHHWHAWWWHWAH
stop botting in runescape ffs
the only thing Venezuela has to blame is socialism
Some facts from a Venezuelan living in Venezuela for the world to KNOW:
Guaido did NOT proclaim himself, the last elections(as long as the 585858585 other ones) were illegal and there was a void in power so he can take charge as interim president as he is the president of the National Assembly(Our constitution says so)
Maduro is killing our people by not providing the hospitals with supplies, power cuts, basically because he stole the worlds biggest chunk of money a country has EVER received
About 6.5million people have left the country because most people cant afford even food, minimum wage is about 5$ per month, the current price of 1 meal outside in a place
Maduro and Chavez created and currently finance+arm paramilitary groups to kill people at protests or anything he wants.
ALL the army bodies are publicly in support of Maduro which is illegal, and they have said they will NOT betray him, along with all the public institutions/powers
The Cuban intelligence is inside ALL the important roles of our country and it is publicly known
Basically we are trapped in this shit alone, then the US+59 other democratic countries show support + recognize Guaido and the whole world thinks US is evil(Yeah it is but its our last hope)
Guaido has brought hope to our country. Hopefully all this nightmare will be over.(Even if US is behind, people here know it and WANT help from US, around 95%)
STOP SAYING MADURO IS LEGITIMATE/GOOD
BUMP! IT took me like 10min to write all that and people have to know the TRUTH
Forgot to say that ALL the media in the whole country is controlled by Maduro and if someone live on TV/radio calls Guaido "President" they shut down the channel/put them in jail
Dude they have literally no power rn. So ofc not
They don't need aid because there is no crisis or empty shelves.
you should watch Hohn Oliver shows about it. Explain it very well. Their Dictator is crazy.
Most countries have corrupt governments, but nothing big is happening in them. The problem is that Venezuelan thieves do not want to share with other thieves, which is why these thieves are angry xD
South America learned the hard way that the United States know how poor countries politicians think and abused it over decades.
Leftists in the whole continent will hate the US and guess what- they are right doing so. Problem is: they are corrupt, have this concept politicians are some kind of evolved superior human being and think poverty and lack of education is something impossible to change.
Venezuela is in a mix of USA abuse and terribly traumatized leftist government, which trends to be dictatorial to be ideologically strong against the amount of shit external interests can do to a country.
As someone getting news of waves of thousands of immigrants and hearing about black out, lack of toilet paper, food, inflation over 1000% I think Maduro should be killed or impeached, but damn things are complicated on the other hand.,
I find this thread quite funny lmao never change hltv
Venezuela will sooner or later end up like the countries of the Middle East, from one civil war to another with interventions from the US. In addition, the countries with borders (Brazil and Colombia) and even others that are closer (Ecuador Peru) are receiving immigrants and do not like them very much.Although the United States is also doing its thing in poor Venezuela
