"I want to introduce you. To something that occurred in July 18 2014 7 short years ago. And on that date, a large number of delegates from radical groups throughout the world gathered to issue a joint proclamation called The Margarita Declaration on Climate Change. Revealing that their proclamation leads with a quote from Venezuela's late Marxist. Dictator Hugo Chavez quote. Let us go to the future. Let us bring it and so it here. Of course, thanks to Chavez and his successor, Nicolas Maduro. The Venezuelan economy and society are devastated. People are dying of starvation. And seeking refuge in the United States and other countries. There's a complete breakdown in health care and basic public services, and the government is a violent police state that represses any and all dissident voices. Indeed, the proclamation reads like a modern version of Marxist Communist Manifesto. Laced with environmental declarations and platitudes. While it is insipid and absurd on so many levels, it is also dangerously appealing and increasingly acceptable. As a matter of national international

More videos are the scene made their way onto the internet citizens of the socialist country were battling government they hid behind freeway. Barricades and hurled stones at the armored vehicles. The morning after that initial I spoke with John Bolton national security advisor to President Trump. There are tens of thousands of Americans in Venezuela. Have any of them in put in harm's way? We have not heard reports there are estimate is between forty and forty five thousand American citizens there over a million European Union citizens, of course, they're very worried about the situation there as well. So it's a it's a very very delicate moment the been leader the men. Well, Ricardo Christopher Garo sided with guide. Oh, that's her secret police how many secret police are there. And what does that sign mean for Madero? Well, it's it's very significant and the intelligence services now split as. Much of the military. You know, the the the media I think have gotten a lot of the story wrong. What what we saw in the run-up? And this was really it was handled by the opposition of the United States was not directly involved in it. But senior officials in the Madero regime were flatly agreeing that Madero had to go. They had documents. They were prepared to sign with opposition leader one go, I do that would embody their agreement and the steps that would be taken the supreme court would declare Medeiros constituent assembly illegitimate. That would clarify for everybody. Anybody needed clarification the legitimacy of the national assembly led by go, I do and then that would have allowed the military to to cover themselves in a way, defense minister padrino and others to take action. Now for reasons that are still not clear that didn't go forward yesterday. Mike Pompeo said the which we knew during the day that Madero. Had been prepared to flee to Cuba. And it was the Russians that talked him out of it. So I think that the satisfaction with Madero and the regime, and frankly with the Cubans and the Russians is very deep seated that we we don't know how events will play out over the next days, but nobody should think that that there's any reflection here that, you know, the people in the military Venezuela, very happy with nNcholas Medeiros regime.

Well, listen to this is another reason why any facile conclusion that things are gonna return to quote, unquote, normal is completely wrong God within the top leadership ship regime. Clear indications that they don't trust each other. They don't talk to each other. How can how can Maduro look at the Drina the defense minister and not think that well, maybe this first attempt didn't didn't work. But but the next one's coming that. That's why it's impossible for these people to work together, the situations, not sustainable and usually want to situations not sustainable, it's not sustained Lima group at how a straw. Did they issued statements in support of WTO? Yeah. There were a number of statements. We're looking at other things we can do within the organization of American states. The Lima groups been very strong on this led by the president of Peru, Colombia Argentina Brazil Chile. I mean, it's a part from the usual outliers in this case, Mexico, and Cuba, really the hemisphere is increasingly United behind Guido. And that's another important point. You know, the crap again, and the international left would love people to believe that this is Yankee imperialism alive. Again. This is the people of Latin America saying we want the people of Venezuela to have the same freedom. We do and the fact is if we can't accomplish this peaceful transfer of power what what is already a refugee crisis unprecedented in western hemisphere history.

The president talk with him or did acting secretary of defense and talk with our about options. Well, the the there are a lot of options underway. I spoke with Pat Shanahan myself, Mike Pompeo, and I've been talking we've been talking to the intelligence community Admiral Fowler had a great line a couple of days ago, referring to the southern command, which is in charge of he said, we're on the balls of our feet ready to go. And that that's the kind of attitude we need this. This is this is something that to get the Cubans out of Venezuela. I think our view is the twenty to twenty five thousand Cubans security forces left today Madeira would fall by midnight that that's what's keeping him in power. There's no popular support for him. There is support from a cadre of top regime officials who have benefited from the corruption that drug trafficking, the looting Venezuelan assets these last twenty years, but it's the Cuban presence more than anything else that keeps the regime in power Leopoldo Lopez appeared with president guide. Oh, he is a faint figure. Gear in Venezuela part of the freedom movement. Do we know his situation? Yeah. I think he's safe. I think there's obvious concern that whether it's via the collective tvos, these motorcycle gangs of thugs that the Cubans have organized or whether from from from the Cubans themselves that that any opposition leaders endanger here, these are real acts of bravery, we're saying here on the part of just average civilians, you you could look at the crowds in Caracas. And we'll see more of that in cities all around the country. It just average people who want nothing more than a free government and to give them a chance for an economic future for their children, which they're not getting under the Maduro regime conditions. Get worse and worse. This is particularly true in the poorest neighborhoods around Caracas, which twenty years ago where were the major sources of support for Hugo Chavez there now entirely with the opposition where Maduro and his his strongman padrino hold up during on come on. On TV in combat fatigues. Yesterday Madero showed up last night trying to look in control where they hold up. Well, you raise an interesting point. And and during the day, of course, they were invisible one Guido, and as you said Leopoldo Lopez route on the streets of Caracas with their supporters trying to rally further support Maduro, and and his regime were down in a bunker somewhere. And basically where they are is a place called fourteen Yuna, which is the Cuban headquarters in Venezuela. Why were they there because I think they couldn't trust most of the Venezuelan forces to to actually protect them the Cubans. They could count on that tells you what the real political situation in Venezuela is for the regime with the internet social media shutdown allegedly with the help of the PR see how are people communicating with the Latin America with the Venezuelan masses and one hundred ninety thousand minutes in Florida with phones, but how is the word getting out? Well, there are a lot of things being tried. What we're looking at. A lot of possibilities there.

"I'm Gideon Rachman today. We're looking at the situation in Venezuela where the government of President Nicolas Maduro is under unprecedented, domestic and international pressure. Joining me in the studio to discuss on. This is our Latin America specialist Jonathan Wheatley and on the line for the regional Ambien correspondent Gideon long Jonathan this immediate crisis seems to be provoked by the US government's decision to say that they recognized somebody else one Grado as the legitimate leader. Venezuela is that correct? And what's built up to? Well. Yes. Absolutely. That's the immediate cause of what's happened in the past few days. But this is being a very very long crisis in the making people who've foreseen the end of the regime of President Nicolas Maduro for at least two years if not more now, I'm what's happened is that basically through mismanagement incompetence oil production has slumped. The government has nationalized everything it possibly can include New Orleans distribute, all other surviving sectors of domestic industry in Venezuela. The country's become dependent for pretty much everything on imports the availability of dollars to pay for those imports slumped along with all production. I mean, all production was about three and a half million barrels a day when this government started under Hugo Chavez at the end of the ninety s it's now just over one million barrels a day, but heading south of that. So they've lost more than a third of their oil output that dollars evaporated massive shortages of foods. Medicines, social, unrest and an ongoing socio economic disaster. Why has the US made its move now? And how much has it been able to rally the rest of the world behind his view? Or is there as I sense kind of division in the international community with now the Russians the Iranians and others coming in behind Madero. Well, I think the reasons that a complex. I mean, the immediate spur as you said the top is that going to has. Merged. He became the head of the national assembly only this month peers emerged as a coalescing figure in the often, very divided and fractious opposition. So the chances arisen for something to happen as all kinds of speculation could get into but why the US is doing it. Now saw one comment from respected here malice this morning saying that this is really President Trump's charts to engage in a speculative foreign venture things haven't gone very well in the Middle East. Things are not going very well at home with the shutdown and policy and his ratings falling in the Miller inquiry getting up steam, so maybe a successful venture in his own backyard in Venezuela would do his poll rating some good is it likely to be successful. If there's so much pushback from other countries. Well, they are you've got a group of countries lined up with him. I mean, the UK almost the Bank of England is frozen. One point two billion dollars worth of Venezuelan gold, and the UK and other European countries of said that they will support the opposition free. Elections not held soon. Brazil Colombia several other smaller Latin American countries have got on board the US, but at the same time, Mexico hasn't other big Latin American countries, also haven't Russia and China, certainly haven't. So you've got to stand up in. The question is how much support with the US have how willing is. It seems to be preparing the ground for Sunday to happen quickly. John Bolton was seen carrying his notes saying five thousand troops in Columbia yesterday. This has got people thinking something it'd be happening. Very soon. Some people think it's unlikely my own view is that the thing that stands most against that is that even for the opposition a government installed in Caracas by the US would have a very tough time establishing itself as legitimate. So they'll be a lot of pushback against that. But were the US to be able to get engaged? I think there's a certain amount of momentum behind them get in in the region. What's happening domestically because the Maduro government. You know, we've had the kale. That it's presiding over outlined for us. There is a powerful position is the domestic unrest in Venezuela.

"All right. Let's shift our focus over the Venezuela. There are more protests expected there today and more pressure on President Nicolas Maduro step down will be the first mass protests since the opposition leader one Guido declared himself president or was declared by the legislature's president. They said they were following the constitution. Guido does have the support of the United States and other countries President Nicolas Maduro has ordered authorities in Venezuela. The supreme court to put a travel ban on Widodo and all of his Bank accounts have been frozen, and he has Philip breathes joins us from Caracas where he's covering all of this political drama. Hey, phil. So the opposition led by one guy does calling for these protests. Is there an expectation? They could get violent today. Well, there is. Yeah. He's cooling for people to walk out for two hours out of the homes and offices and shops and so on and he's calling for it to be a non von protest. You know, he successfully summit hundreds of thousand. People onto the streets last week. So I expect this will be large some areas, we're expecting crowds. Others may just be people in this on the streets. Banging pots and pans. We don't know how do security forces are gonna react, according to the UN human rights office. Forty people have been killed since this crisis really erupted nine days ago, most by Venezuela's security services and Yep. The worry is that we move bloodshed. I mean Madero has told the supreme court to put this travel ban on the opposition leader one quite oh at the same time d'oro says he's open to negotiating. But that doesn't seem like a negotiating kind of posture to tell your opposition that, you know, your Bank accounts are frozen, and you can't go anywhere. What are the odds at these two men actually get in a room? Well, let's not forget that Maduro accuses Guido of staging an attempted coup with US collaboration. So a travel ban is kind of. Rather alight response. Most countries you would be in jail. If you were also at the same time summer, something huge crowds out in the streets to support you. So I think doodo is trying to feel his way here he talks about negotiating. But you know, I can't see how the opposition will do that. With a man they don't recognize as president unless it's a specific discussion about his departure. And also there's no sign that is interested in it's about his departure. I should add Madore is standing firm when it comes to the issue of his departure. Meanwhile, the US the Trump administration has cut off Medeiros revenues from oil and exerting a lot of of influence in Venezuela in in hopes of pushing Madero out of power house that being received. I mean, what Venezuelans on the street the protestors make of the US involvement. Well, I think the protest is appreciate it. But I think a lotta people are also very worried it's very hard to see how we can avoid a. Very violent situation evolving. Here. Let's say best case scenario that Makoto goes. But what happens then we'll the police in the national guard just show up for work the next day saying, the, you know, the then his Waylon socialist experiments over we went for someone else. Now, there's a very high risk. That'll be a vacuum for awhile while these security forces figure out who's in charge, and while the strongly pro Madore elements disappear and remember this country's gonna populations very hungry and very poor mightly abused an angry. I don't see how you would have you could avoid a situation where in those circumstances that would be mass looting. And that's in the opposition best case scenario, right? Thanks so much, Phil.
