Putsch comes to shove: Venezuela
"And welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. After yesterday's dramatic attempt to oust Venezuela's president. We take a look at coups around the world, what makes them happy. What makes them succeed, and what are the risks for coup-plotters fail? And a surprise raid on North Korea's embassy in Madrid reveals just how difficult and thankless it is to be a dissident against the North Korean regime. But I. In Venezuela yesterday, the opposition leader one Guido made his move to try to overthrow the embattled President Nicolas muddle, he claimed his operation. Liberty would be the final push to depose a man who has retained power only through a sham election. Mr. Guido is supported by millions of Venezuelans or suffering from regime inflicted hunger and hardship. But it's the support of the military. He needs in order to take power. And despite promising early signs not enough of them decided to abandon Mr. Muto. Lobue leniency called Pai tau. In a defiant television address, the president called the attempt of failure lambasting those who handed their souls over to the coup mongering, far, right? I was waking up shortly after six AM by the sound of saucepans being bashed, which is a traditional form of protest in Venezuela. Stephen Gibbs rights for the economist he was among the crowds in the capital Caracas yesterday as events unfolded. And it soon transpired what was going on. And that was the one I do was calling for a military uprising. We went over the us. Lootah bell imprinting gynecology perfume in no fuel inter inter one hundred zero as soon became apparent that. This was by no means a normal day all shops with barricaded opposite. As they usually are when there is a protest, but this was not a typical protest because a Hong wide other was out with soldiers. And they were all standing on this a motorway that overlooks the military basement airbase right in the center of Caracas and those soldiers will wearing blue on bans as a symbol of their defection and the crowds grew and grew. An inside that base. The sort of big question was whether the people inside the soldiers, the conscripts inside would he'd what those outside were saying, which is come and join us rebel against the Madora government. Pretty quick it became apparent that. They weren't going to do that it will far in ice towards the crowns toward us that were just on the other side of the barricade. And then things got even uglier the rebel soldiers. Apparently sort of rattled by something began to fire live rounds into the air. That go to whole lot of people running and it was a precarious situation. And then there was a sort of a standoff that lasted for several hours. One of the more striking things that was was. There was Leopold Lopez. He is Venezuela's most famous political prisoner. He's been in jail or under house arrest since twenty fourteen. So to see him walking the streets. Not balking particularly far was quite extraordinary in in. He managed to release himself by a defection of those people that were guarding him. So it was clear that this wasn't as I say a normal protest. Something unusual was going on that went on for several hours until after the tear gas through gone on bearable. Most of the protesters recapped to the square in out mirror here in eastern Caracas. And there was quite oh and Leopoldo Lopez and several members of the national guard who had defected, and they were being sort of hugged by supporters. They were some of them with. With the family, and this was the image. Of course, the opposition was hoping would be repeated massively across the country. This is what they're trying to do. They're trying to do a sort of fell revolution where the feared security forces. Give up put down their arms and say, you know, we're not going to support Madore or anymore where with this new president and everything's going to change. It didn't happen. It sounds like there was good public supports on the streets anyway for Mr. Guido or the people rallying behind him more widely. The short answer is. Yes, I mean, given that he was a relatively unknown figure last year. And now he is unquestionably the most famous opposition leader in Suada. It is probably were saying that a lot of the support for two is a sort of protest vote against Maduro Midori is not popular. But he given that he is saying that he's leading a popular revolu. Nation that in his last a contested election. The one that you know, Guido and the opposition and much of the international community says was rigged last year in a he's standing for reelection. Or he stood for reelection. In the midst of the deepest recession in the world inflation heading for ten million percent, everyone feeling poor more miserable public services here. Collapsing. So, you know, the idea that he could really come on Syria support seems implausible and what about the military whose allegiance has always been the Lynch pin here. What what support does Mr. Guido have from them? I mean, it might be fair to say not as much support as he hopes since he came on the scene in early January. He has repeatedly said look, I can only do this. If the military come with me, I think there's no question in the lower ranks of the army and the forces people know happy head because they're suffering. Exactly the same way the most. Venezuelan's suffering. The problem is that the high ranking generals and the of Venezuela that notoriously has a top heavy army with with thousands of generals a lot of them on a benefiting from the chaos here from the corruption which Unity's that may afford them a new also the whole forces. This is one of the things that were job is Maderas assisted. Did he politicized that institution? Effectively everyone sort of fouls their allegiance to the socialist, revolution and not just Venezuela. So it is a relatively world controlled institution. As as one guy to is is finding out and what will happen to Mr White. Oh, if this fails altogether. If this fails, which is perfectly probable identing it's necessarily the end of quavo. You know, he will probably continue an hope that the drip-by-drip discontent in the military against Maduro. We'll alternate. Really bear fruit. And I think the other person to watch is there Puerto Lopez. He's now out of house arrest. He's going to be living. It seems in the Spanish embassy. That means he's conceive people. He can meet people he can negotiate and that will be an instinct additional little twist to this long-running saga.

Licks to have failed self-proclaimed present one Guido issued an early morning cool, Fulton the military to join a popular uprising, but only a handful of soldiers heated his pay. Let's bring in merging markets. Edita? Justin cowards. So it looks like Mr. Guido is held up in a couple of embassies is this is dumb. Is this coup attempt done finished with a certainly very weakened. Isn't it? Leopoldo Lopez who was guidos mentor who appeared surprisingly yesterday. When all this kicked off is now back in what he's he's sought sanctuary in either the Chilean or the Spanish and the last we heard, but what do I think is still at large, and he's calling for people to come out again on the streets in protest, but it would appear that the subtext here. The a lot of the impetus has drained away from this after yesterday's excitement. It's Labor Day. We shall see. We saw protests yesterday. Fifty out of fifty two of the countries states reported protests, but it hasn't gone anywhere. So we're kind of sticking to the script a little bit as you were just a few weeks ago.

What what have you been seeing less twenty four to forty eight? Yeah. Well, the phone market really told the story in the bond market didn't move. So clearly, the investment community was waiting to see how this thing was going to turn out. I think the next stage is to see again where this will lead. If it doesn't lead anywhere, then don't expect much action in in the bone in the bone markets. There isn't much trading going on. It's just people hanging out really for some kind of renegotiation some kind of right down that really trading.

"And it sounds like it's going to be a long night because the situation is still very fluid. I'm just looking at the way that Leopoldo Lopez reappeared on the scene dramatically, I understand there was quite a senior Madero figure involved in that who has now turned against the president. Yes, that's correct. The director of the secret police say mean published a letter earlier today or announcing himself in support of way, though, I'm rejecting modo and probably the highest ranking government loyalists who has to date express support for why though generalist emiliana Duarte in Caracas. So could we see another day of mass protests across Venezuela today Wednesday with his assessment of the country's future is the BBC's James Reed who has reported many times from south. Erica, there's a real sense. Now, this long running crisis is approaching climax and and things really on a knife edge Guido he claims he's the president. He's shown he can mobilize huge crowds of supporters. He's won the support of dozens of countries not just the United States, but regional powers like Colombia, and Brazil, but real power in the end rests in the hands of the armed forces. And it's for the loyalty of the men and women in uniform, the nNcholas Maduro and Guido now competing Mr. Guido showed that he could win over dozens of members of the armed forces during his protest yesterday. But Mr. Madeira has put on a show of loyalty with his military chiefs. So really that is the question now which way will the armed forces term interesting to say the Americans saying that president Madeira had been prepared to leave. Excellent Kibo, but was persuaded not to by the Russians has no that's true or not. But suddenly outside forces are also in play. Well, that's right. Yeah. The United States is strongly. Backing Mr. glide they keep saying that military action is an option. The other Latin American countries are very much against this Colombia, Brazil. They don't want to see any kind of armed conflict. But the tension is there on the streets, and if different factions within in the armed forces are opposed to each other. Well in the end, that's always a danger. And of course, the background to this very political crisis is a deep economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. Millions of people have left the country. There were shortages of food shortages of medicine. The economy is in collapse. So people in Venezuela very much waiting and hoping for some kind of resolution, and Mr. Guido hoping that they will come onto the streets on mayday to show displeasure with the government. Yes, he's not backing down. And the stakes for him, particularly high president Madeira has said now that he's determined to bring criminal cases against the people who've in his view. Press for an illegitimate military coup. Kwanggaeto is at large in Venezuela. We don't know where is does nNcholas Maduro nowhere. Here's our the police and the armed forces after him.

"Hours alone. Four momentum. Log on pin funeral winners means Mr. Guido who's recognized as Venezuela's interim president by dozens of countries could be arrested and jailed our correspondent will grant is in the capital Caracas. And what were the grounds for the decision? The grounds were essentially that he defied travel ban last month, we saw when he came back in sort of victorious wave to his supporters that was as I say sort of fuel wanting a travel ban that have been put in place by the supreme court so that was the pre pretext if you like, but ultimately as far as I can see this is about the fact that he's declared himself interim president this is tied. His finances all these sorts of things, but ultimately this essentially about the fact that he is called himself. Interim president and has represented this challenge to president Maduro. So does this mean he's likely to be arrested? And if he is what would the impact? In Venezuela via if that is definitely definitely a step closer one. That will be huge escalation, I think if the tensions and oversleep things are very very tense in Venezuela at the moment, I wouldn't rule it out. And what I mean by that is that they have obviously already arrested his right hand man, keep literature adviser and charging him with terrorism. Offenses. They have now stripped Mr. Guido of his parliamentary immunity and does leave the path clear to to an arrest if they decided to act on that is another question though.

But of course, you know, the question, I guess the inner circle of the Madero government might be asking themselves as well. Will actually donated we do to anything. So there may be an element here where they're sort of cooling the bluff of the Americans. If you like I think the Trump administration and the State Department which say that is very very unwise game to be playing that they meant it when they said, there will be severe consequences, if Mr. wider was in any way, arrested or harmed that was real ground in Caracas.

From the way, she says she was treated really right from the start when she was detained searched and interrogated at Vancouver's airport last December. She says that she was held for three hours without explanation before a police officer even told her why she was arrested. The documents say that the arrest was premeditated.

Venezuela's Maduro Shuts Down Border with Brazil to Stop Aid
"Tomorrow is the deadline set by one Guido widely viewed as the interim president of Venezuela for humanitarian aid to be delivered to the impoverished country. Then his way has been facing rampant, hyper inflation and shortages of food and medicine after years of misrule by President Nicolas Maduro who still clings to power. Mr. muddle won the presidency again last year in elections that were widely viewed as fraudulent now Venezuela's opposition and more than fifty countries recognize Mr. Widodo as the president. He's been organizing stockpiles of food and medicine in Colombia, and Brazil and will be traveling to the Colombian border from Caracas to meet the deliveries. He's also called for volunteers to come to the border and help distribute it more. No single thin guarantee. Ah mister Modesto says he'll block any aid deliveries yesterday. He closed the border between Venezuela and Brazil and has threatened to close the border also with Colombia. Nicholas maduro. The president basically deny is that there's a humanitarian crisis going on in Venezuela part of the pace that the opposition is making is we're the guys who can relieve these shortages and begin to feed you properly and begin to provide medicines in the hospitals. So we'll any of Mr. guidos humanitarian aid make it into the country. Brooke Unger is our America's editor what is Mr. Guido planning this weekend. He said February twenty third is the day when all the say that's piling up in Columbia and other countries around. Venezuela will begin to move into Venezuela. To relieve the humanitarian crisis there and the big question is going to be can you make that happen? And what will the government do to stop it? Where's this aid coming from a lot of it's coming from the US? They're awesome European countries that are contributing aid to this effort. So it's coming from quite a number of places. But yeah, mainly from outside the region, and why this deadline what's special about the twenty third Guido and a rally. Week or so ago said, you know, kind of name the twenty third is being the day when this would begin to happen. So it's kind of self imposed deadline, but they needed to start at some point. And you know, obviously in addition to being a day when hopes that aid begins to flow into Venezuela. You know, there's there's a lot of politics and symbolism surrounding this day. So he not only wants food medicine to get the people, but he wants the world to sort of rally around the idea that, you know, his interim government is going to is going to provide support for for Hungary Venezuelans so about that crucial. Question of Ken, Mr. Guido, get this eight through do you think he can what is what's the plan? What he does have what he's trying to have is he's signed up hundreds of thousands of volunteers who were supposedly going to try and begin to bring this aid from the border with Colombia into something like twelve cities inside Venezuela. And how that actually is going to play out will be very interesting to see, you know, we don't know exactly what his tactics are going to be you know, one thing to to point out is that the the border between. Colombia and Venezuela was pretty porous you know, you could have all in tears crossing the border on guarded points. And attempting to bring aid in that way. There's also speculation that you know, they might be airdrops of aid from from US planes a could come in that way or by or by boat. So, you know, we don't know exactly what Ruthie eight is going to take. And what we really don't know is what the reaction of Venezuela's armed forces are going is going to be what might they do it. Why can they be seem to stop aid coming in the government portrays this essentially as sort of invasion of Venezuela? I mean, they they regard the delivery of American aid as being kind of a cover for an attempt to in American attempt to topple the government in American invasion of swords. And you know, they would see stopping the aid as being away of defending their sovereignty. President Trump has come out clearly in support of Guido. Except president widens generous offer of amnesty deliver your life in peace with your families, and your countrymen what's America's interest in this whole question. Don't Trump has taken a very firm and consistent line against the Madero regime, which is not entirely consistent with his line on other repressive dictators in the rest of the world their various explanations for that. I mean, one reason may be that they're quite a lot of Americans Venezuelan and Cuban origin in Florida, which is an important swing state. And so, you know, it it it Trump wants to appear to be on the side of those people who are who are certainly against the Venezuelan regime. You know, it's also true that, you know, some prominent Republicans in particular Marco Rubio, who's from Florida has kind of made it his his 'cause right? What about the effect that might have been in in the country? It could it be that the Venezuelan people like meddling American administration even less than they like the situation. They've got. There's a big risk here at the moment, the US and the opposition in Venezuela are kind of working hand in glove, and the opposition of gone along with very very tough American sanctions, which the hope is that the sanctions are going to dislodge the regime by denying the cash basically needs to survive, but you know, in doing that it's also going to worsen the the plight of the Venezuelan people. So you have this rather ironic situation where in order to push the regime out the opposition to starting with measures that that will hurt their own people. You know at the moment, there's an alliance there. But it certainly, you know, it's certainly true that if the US follows through with its threat to begin to use military force to push the regime out, then the the the equation could change. I I think it's very important that this process and Venezuela be seen as you know, Venezuelans getting rid of victory will regime rather than as Americans coming in. And imposing a government that suits them will this work for. I do you think that? He he will be able to sort of assume power in in full or will Mr. Madero hang on in the long run. I think that's very very difficult to say it's clear that the pillars of support for this regime are crumbling. They've lost public support. They've lost international support except for a few few isolated countries. Like Russia and Turkey, even China is is kind of wavering. They're running out of cash, but unless you you begin to see real signs of defection within the armed forces. You know, this regime can this regime can go on. And there's no further indication that support for him within this sort of the higher echelons of the military is is crumbling at the moment. There's no such indication. You had the the defense minister saying a couple of days ago that the coalition arranged against the government would have to topple it over his dead body. The the army high command seems to be pretty solidly with Madero. So there's no real indication except for a few isolated cases of defense. Action that the army is going to desert the gene,

The Venezuelan lawmaker one Guido who is leading efforts to bring down a man he has described as a dictator. He's spending his time garnering support inside and outside the country to persuade the army critical to his success to support him today. The number of countries who have recognized Mr. Guido as the interim president has reached twenty at a news conference. These Spanish Prime minister Pedro Sanchez said Mr. Guido was the legitimate leader. Venezuela. Louis, whatever. Today.

This day has come a no steps have been taken by the Maduro regime in this direction. The government of Spain announces it officially recognizes the president of the Venezuelan assembly, Mr. Guido Marquez as president of Venezuela. The democratic legitimacy of one Guido stems from his position as speaker of the Venezuelan national assembly legitimate organ that arose from the last free and democratic elections recognized as such by the international community. Several other European countries. Have also backed Mr. Guido today, but Russia one of Nicolas Madura is main backers rejected what it called foreign meddling. His Russia's foreign minister Sergei Lavrov. So you things. The US doesn't hide the fact that they would like to change the regime at any price yesterday. President Trump said that he's keeping the option of a military invasion.

Interim president one Guido in an effort to push the military to turn against leader Nicolas Maduro, Mr. guidos claims have been backed by more than twenty countries, including the United States. They've called on president Maduro to step down and call early elections. Request the president is flatly refused. Our correspondent all Garin is in Caracas the capital, and she told me more about these upcoming demonstrations build by one Guido as the biggest in the history of Venezuela. Well, he certainly made some very bishops predictions about what the turn is will be. We do expect it to be large. There is a real sense here that there is a head of steam building behind the opposition leader one Guido, the timing of the protest on Saturday is important a deadline was issued by major European countries. Four Saturday saying that if President Nicolas Maduro did not call fresh elections by then then this would trigger further recognition of fun does. So we are expecting Britain France Spain and Germany to recognize him on Saturday. If new elections are not called. There are pro government demonstrations planned as well. That sounds a little ominous in terms of the potential for violence. What Saturday is an important adversary Serie for supporters of the socialist government here. It's the twentieth. Anniversary of the coming to power of the late Hugo Chavez, so they were planning to Mark that day. It's possible. That the two groups will clash tomorrow, we had smaller demonstrations earlier this week a client of a lunchtime protests that was called by fond Guido, and we did see some supporters of the president. I was at that time as well on the streets. And certainly he does still have support. There are some very entrenched areas of support for him, for example, among the military leadership and many of whom are believed to have a vested interest in his survival and the protesters, what's your feeling are they all supportive of one guy Widodo are they simply anti president Madero. I think it's a bit of both. I think certainly people here among the activists community have been looking for a standard bearer, they see on quite was representing the possibility of change. I think there is a sense that will many that really what they want is the end of nNcholas Maduro they have had enough after all of the ruinous economic policies that have been introduced in the last few.

Why does also urging the old powerful Venezuelan military to get on the side of the people while my Doro is ratcheting up pressure on him treason old why does assets and barring him from leaving the country, but he's also leaving his door open for talks telling Russian media that he would negotiate with the opposition for the good of Venezuela for the world and its future.

So this is a really important moment of the president of the United States of voice support early on for Mr. Guido. And now he's actually picked up the phone or they've talked on the phone anyway. And he's got support Guido from President Trump. Can you tell me exactly what kind of support the president offered? I think the most important thing is to support our agenda, and that's what we have been talking with the United States and also with Latin American countries and the European Union's union on our agendas, so clear Christiane, first of all we want to end user of power of mother, then we want to move to a democratic system establishing a transitional government. And after that, we want to call for a free and trust election as soon as possible. This is our were again, this were we want to move forward. And that's why we are requesting the support of the international community on it is important to mention I mean, this is not only about the United States. Again. This is a fight between, you know, the free world against dictatorship. I get it. I know you're saying this is a fight between dictatorship and democracy, just explained. For people who are watching, and they think well, hang on a second president Madero claims that he won the elections and won Guido has not been elected president describe how you going to square that circle. And how you going to resolve what many might have is a question, Mark. Will we have to keep in mind that my Ludo conducted a fake election last year in order to to keep six more years in power. So that was declared by the oil. Yes. In the InterAmerican system as illegal as illegitimate election. And that's why he's not longer the president. His doesn't have how thority to conduct the Brazilians the of Venezuela. I'm the given that we don't have a prison. In the constitutional order and following our constitution under article two three three uterine half constitutional president the president of the national assembly has to assume the competences of the present. So that's why we are claiming they'll get him a sea of a long way though as interim president of Venezuela. And I understand that you won't even be in a position to be able to organize new elections for quite a while. So given that and given that Maduro says he's willing to negotiate with the opposition only not over your demands for free elections. He says he's going to stay till twenty twenty-five when theoretically the current term he's embarking on expires. What is your plan b what do you do if this continues and persists and my Douro holds onto power. So as I said Gerstein, we want to continue with our agenda. If we don't stop do they use her patient of firewood of my. I mean, the crisis will be even worse. So we need to stop that on. If we're willing to negotiate our agenda on on they know that. So we need to put more pressure on the streets with our people. We have the momentum. We have the leadership of one way up we have the institution of the national assembly events wheel. And we have this report of the international community. So I hope we can conduct as move transition in order to establish a democratic government and this stop the suffering off Venezuela. So obviously, we're seeing pictures, and we know that people have come out.
"mr. guido" Discussed on Monocle 24: Midori House
"Welcome to Midori house. My guest today are Brian class. Who's assistant professor in global politics at University College London. He's also Washington Post columnist and the Russia analyst and writer and broadcaster Stephen deal men of many talents. Welcome both of you to the studio. Now, the United States has warned Venezuela that any threats against US diplomats or the opposition leader one Guido will be met with a significant response. Mr. Guido was called on Venezuelans to take to the has called on Venezuelans to take to the streets in protest against President Nicolas Maduro whose governed the country since two thousand thirteen a week ago, Mr. Guido declared himself, the interim president in a move which earned him the backing of Washington and several European countries. How events will play out is anyone's guess. But there are reports that Mr. Guido had secretly worked with Donald Trump's government to plan the current crisis. So the big question all these allegations plausible, and should we trust the source, Brian? Well, I mean, I think it's very difficult in any of these situations to know, what's happening. But I I do think that there is plausibility to them simply because of the history that the United States has in in Latin America that being said, I mean, I think this is a very odd dynamic because this is Madero is the only authoritarian strongman or despot in the world that Donald Trump does not love. And so, you know, it's it's it's done for all the wrong reasons. Right. I mean, it's clear that Trump does not care one ounce about democracy about human rights. I mean, just anecdotally. He's tweeted I looked this up at one point and aggregated them, and he's tweeted two hundred and seventy six times about crowd size and twice about human rights. So, you know, this is not a man who's doing this for the right reasons. But could it produce a good outcome? That's the big question. I am not a Madero fan because he's been chipping away at democracy in Latin America, sorry in Venezuela, specifically for very long time and has been you know, one of the major thwarted trans. In Latin America. And so you you sort of have this odd dynamic recreate strange bedfellows. People who oppose Donald Trump, automated kely support Madurai the same happened, by the way, when the US bombed Syria, and all of a sudden people were saying Assad is great. And it's like, no, he's not. So so I think that there's a separate question here from what's going on behind the scenes versus making sure that we're clear that Madero is not a friend of democracy. Okay. Stephen a couple of things Brian that very interesting. I love the way you aggregate, the tweets and yes to on human rights was two hundred seventy six hundred seventy six hundred. Yeah. That. It it just shows. Also, this this idea that if well if you're not with me, you're against me not against me with meals something. I mean, this this this. I don't know what. Whether it's exactly an alliance, but it's building up, but you know, you have a strange number of countries speaking out against Madero. I mean, a European countries while European countries keeping out of it. I mean, I'm not saying, I don't care about human rights. But I'm saying, you know, it's it's it's something that surely they're not going to get involved with that. You know, we're we're talking about the word military has been mentioned in US context, and that's not beyond the bounds of possibility. But European countries European countries aren't gonna get involved military in the military sense in economic sense. I mean, how do you how do you don't put sanctions on the country? We've got a million percent inflation. I it just it. It's seems a strange mix. And there is I just I just feel there's so much going on behind the scenes that, you know, something is going to leap out at a school strange mix. Yes. But let's look at it in terms of L -tarian motives, because we know for example, that one of the countries which has to be supporting the United States on this is Mexico. And of course, they're all trading ago. She Asians at stake. So is there a hope that perhaps by pandering to Donald Trump on this that someone somewhere may rest favorable deals going forward? The term a favor is not forgotten..
