Venezuelan police fire tear gas at protesters in Caracas

Opposition leader Juan Guaido faced a test of support after calling for the “largest march” in Venezuela’s history against Maduro, even as the military has so far resisted calls to help remove him.

Supporters banged drums and chanted, “What do I want? Freedom!” Guaido, – who heads the opposition-run National Assembly – is recognised as Venezuela’s legitimate president by the United States, Europe and others.

The Venezuelan opposition has often staged huge street protests against Maduro but has failed to dislodge him despite deep economic recession and hyperinflation. The United States and Russia are at odds over Venezuela, with Washington telling Moscow on Wednesday to keep out of “our hemisphere,” and the Kremlin warning the Trump administration against any “aggressive” moves against its ally Maduro.
