Venezuelan protesters keep up pressuring against Maduro

Venezuelan opposing party has doubled its pressure against President Nicolas Maduro by organising a general strike and massive blockage which paralysed several cities. It ended up with 2 deaths and at least 261 detentions.

Demonstrators blocked streets with litter, branches and other obstacles while facing off with security forces after the police’s attempt of clearing the streets in different places of Caracas and the rest of the country.

The strike is part of the “street fight upper phase” organised by the opposition after last Sunday 7,4-million citizens turned down Maduro’s Constituent National Assembly. The referendum was planned by the opposition to stand against Maduro’s intention of modifying the Constitution.

Opposing coalition “Mesa de la Unidad Democrática” (MUD in Spanish) has published several photos of completely empty streets and plenty of closed shops in many cities. They have estimated that the 85% of population participated in the general strike, so that it will be extended until Friday.

However, the Central Bolivariana Socialista de Trabajadores (workers union) has assured that there was no participation and many employees went to work “as they do every day”.

Meanwhile, President Maduro has requested the law enforcement to act immediately against opposing Mayor Carlos Ocariz. Maduro accuses him of ordering the attack on national television VTV; the President has also ordered to capture all terrorists involved in that attack.

Maduro has also explained that a group of protesters – describing them as “fascists” and “terrorists” – burned a unit of the post service provider “Ipostel”.

The Constituent Assembly is expected to be elected on June 30th. Nevertheless, the opposition and many social sectors see it as Maduro’s attempt of formally “consolidate a dictatorship in Venezuela”.
