two_cities.jpg_1718483346
While some people in West Caracas are working, on the East side the opposition supporters are disturbing and setting barricades.

A few weeks ago, Venezuelan opposition published a document with “more than 17 millions of signs” to stop the National Constituent Assembly that will take place this July, 30. Taking into account that the number of Venezuelan population is over 30 millions, the amount of signs reported by the opposition should be enough to solve the political crisis through international mediation.

But the truth is that the segments of Venezuelan population disagreeing with the government do not make the majority to make Nicolas Maduro resign.

Saddly, media only talk about the oppositors and forget the ones who are supporting the constitutional government. The news only refers to casualties of the opposition in the war they themselves exacerbated. Mostly of the deads have occured as a result of violent and criminal acts which will never be criticized.
