The situation in Venezuela is reaching a critical point. Imperialism and the right-wing opposition are using the despair and discomfort that exist in large sectors of the population because of pro-capitalist policies and the corruption of the bureaucracy to organize a coup d’état and take power.

During the last days the prices of the majority of products have tripled and even quadrupled. even products that the government sells or the prices of services such as telephone or electricity have soared, hitting the popular sectors and the middle classes.

In this context, the new leader of the right, Guaidó, has called to ignore Maduro with the support of the imperialists, several of whom starting with Trump have already recognized him. The pressure for the military or at least one sector to ignore Maduro and recognize Guaidó as president is enormous.

The opposition demonstrations are massive and getting desperate sectors of the poor population marching against the government from traditional Chavez neighborhoods, including sectors of workers and activists who were a while ago with the Chavismo. The Maduro government. Its policy of attacks on workers and the search for a pact with the right is what has allowed the reaction to gain the initiative.

We must reject the coup and build a wall of resistance against imperialism and the bourgeoisie and build a revolutionary front on the left.
