Venezuela’s opposition leader and self-proclamed interim president Juan Guaido announced at a rally in Caracas on Saturday that the opposition would soon start gathering international humanitarian aid in Colombia, Brazil and an undisclosed island in the Caribbean.

Guaido said the first gathering point will be in Cucuta, a Colombian city bordering Venezuela.

“There will be two more,” Guaido said regarding aid gathering points. “We will announce their whereabouts in the following days. But I anticipate that one will be in Brazil and the other will be on an island in the Caribbean.”

A rival rally held in support of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro also took place in Caracas on Sunday.

Guaido proclaimed himself interim president on January 23 after declaring the January 10 inauguration of Maduro illegitimate.

Maduro has condemned the decision of a number of countries to recognise Guaido as Venezuela’s acting president.

Gosh, he easily could get snipped. Considering the conditions, I would make such a speech in the open without triple thick of .50BMG-proof glass…
It’d be nonetheless EZ to snipe him, but also to find someone from some US or Brit PMC to be used as a patsy, shoot him, then accuse CIA or MI6 to have made a false flag to trigger a revolution
