Tired of the demonstrations, it contains Pablo Martinez at eight in the evening down on a stone bench in the Plaza Altamira in the Venezuelan capital Caracas. Two days he is already on the leg, since the leader of the opposition and interimpresident Juan Guaidó, together with some twenty soldiers, and the prominent opposition leader Leopoldo Lopéz, the time of the revolution announced. Only is the war not been averted and seems to president Maduro for the moment the strings without prejudice in your hands.

“I’m disappointed,” says Pablo Martinez, who used to be the Bolivarian revolution supported and years in the police force worked. ‘But I also have respect for the opposition, because everyone knows that we are no longer able to continue. The corruption in our country, that all possibilities and resources, everything is a piece. A solution? That I do not see. We have hunger, you know, you think of your stomach, that plate of rice or spaghetti. But the leaders think only of themselves.’

Martinez says that the population does not know what opposition leader Guaidó wants. “He is not communicating with us. Many Venezuelans are not active on social media. We did not even know that there was an attempt for power was in progress. I was called by a cousin from Colombia who asked me what was going on. What is Guaidó’s strategy? He is brave, and he can at any time be arrested. But if you want a large protest movement, then aim really is to the masses, the common people and not only the elite who are already behind you.’

Electricity ration

There is chaos and violence in Caracas. Burning tires, demolitions, barricades, and stones on the road, scattered. Around major access roads from the airport towards the capital is more intensively controlled than is normally the case. Groups of soldiers stopping cars and questioning passengers. The Venezuelans, the water already up to the lips is because of its extensive food – and medicijnschaarste and the recent weeklong power outages and water shortages, eyes still became more desperate than before.

On the place where now three great vehicles of the national guard, saw Neomar Lima a day earlier, the Red Cross, medicines and food gave them. The international aid organization was awarded last month to consent to provide humanitarian support. Live Lima later in one of the high-rise apartment buildings behind the square.

Elsewhere on the square is Martin Lamar. His gas mask dangles at the belt of his pants. After the major power outages in march in some parts of the city the electricity is still on ‘ration’, so there is still no full street lighting.

Lima feels out of the field beaten. ‘Both gentlemen, Maduro and Guaidó fight each other for months now. They lose only time. What have we to protest that the situation does not change, while we have problems of acute need to be resolved?’

Military intervention?

According to Martin Lamar, dean of a school, is military intervention the only solution that Venezuela rest to get out of this impasse. “First you said Guaidó that intervention was an option. Then, he wanted nothing to know about it. They are afraid abroad, then you will also get the public eye, and you will lose control and authority, and there can be even more chaos break out.’

The square is dominated widely amazement about the fact that Maduro to Wednesday local time has not yet occurred at Guaidó. The interimpresident runs despite his couppoging still around and during the protests Wednesday, he gave at different locations speeches. “While he, according to the law punishable, and if I would do something that is forbidden, I will immediately become locked up,” says protester Paulo Martinez.

Or it is only a matter of time before Guaidó by Maduro’s regime is arrested will now be apparent. Lamar: ‘Maduro knows that the Americans do not accept as Guaidó is arrested. And China and Russia are the West already made it clear that they are right behind Maduro. They play a game, and we the Venezuelan population, are the dupe.’
