Venezuela’s opposition leader Juan Guaido has announced the beginning of the final phase of “Operation Freedom” to topple President Nicolas Maduro.
Reuters Venezuela tweeted that the president of Colombia, Iván Duque Márquez, had called for the people and military of Venezuela to join Juan Guaido to seek freedom and reconstruction through the removal of Nicolas Maduros.

Jair Bolsonaro, who just recently took the reins from the former socialist government in Brazil also tweeted his support of Guaido.
O Brasil se solidariza com o sofrido povo venezuelano escravizado por um ditador apoiado pelo PT, PSOL e alinhados ideológicos. Apoiamos a liberdade desta nação irmã para que finalmente vivam uma verdadeira democracia.

Venezuela banned private gun ownership in 2012 which is why Juan Guaidó needs to have the army on his side.
Amnesty International estimates that more than 8,200 people died in extrajudicial killings in Venezuela between 2015 and 2017.
Reports on Twitter are coming in that Maduros forces are leaving the streets refusing to engage with protestors. And at least one political prisoner as been released.
Int’l audiences should realize how monumental this is. Leopoldo Lopez is one of Venezuela’s leading anti-Maduro figure. Until today, he was a political prisoner in both a military prison and under house arrest for five years.
Today he was freed by Maduro’s security forces. https://t.co/wRvNvMmvYO
