The whole country seems to be surprised to be

no Matter how the struggle for power in Venezuela may be, the country is at the beginning of February 2019 is no longer the country it was at the beginning of January. Still, four weeks ago, the car seemed to be sitting democratic President Nicolas Maduro so firmly in the saddle as ever. Now being discussed in all corners of Caracas, whether it is a question of weeks, until he abdicated – or, rather, a matter of days.

Maduro, I'll give him that, is a phenomenon of persistence. He has already survived so many crises, that the Venezuelans have now lost Faith in him ever again to get rid of. But these days, he is undoubtedly going through the most difficult days of his now six-year term in office. His people left him, also internationally, he is isolated to a large extent. And him out of money. The only thing that speaks to the hour for Maduro, are the weapons of the army, the national guard, the police and the militias. Only with your support its ailing military dictatorship holds on to Power. . Presumably Nicolás Maduro senses: As soon something could come to an end in Venezuela.

Why now? Good Question. The whole country seems surprised by the momentum of the past few days. One of the biggest Surprises is certainly that there is a discernible Opposition, a movement that represents the frustrations of the large majority of the population. For years, Maduro's political opponents were busy to tear each other apart. More recently, this Opposition speaks with one voice. This changes a lot, if not everything.

It does not interfere, once again, that this voice sounds pretty brittle. Juán Guaidó, 35, has been a lot of talk in the past one and a half weeks. Starting with his oath to God and the Constitution on the 23. January, when he proclaimed himself the legitimate President of Venezuela. Since then, he tries constantly to convince the Rest of the world, as well as the Venezuelan armed forces of his cause. The works in the first case, amazingly fast, and in the second case, a pretty tough process. Now Guaidó is hoarse.

But that is him actually quite good. He is not a Barker, but a politician reciting his words objectively and prudently, the dear a pause for too much than too little power, and is different from his counterpart, Maduro also by the absence of expletives. This Saturday Guaidó to breathe and coughs his audience in the centre of Caracas: "The exchange is close to in Venezuela."

"The answer of a people that has no fear"

tens of thousands have gathered in the district of Las Mercedes to celebrate your big of hope with national flags and stadium horns, hundreds of thousands are at the same time across the country on the legs – with the declared aim of the Maduro Regime, the Rest of the way. In contrast to the mass rallies of 2017, only the medium is not demonstrated here, but layer, and, more recently, the Poorest of the poor from their hills come down to the protests to join in. This is also why Maduro falters now, as never before, because these are the people that he held up for his unwavering Basis.

It is no coincidence that the state Repression is currently mainly against the Breakaway from traditional chavistischen strongholds of Caracas such as Catia or Petare. The human rights organisation Foro Penal has counted in the past two weeks to the thousands of arrests, and 35 Deaths by firearms. For most of the victims of the Faes is responsible for a notorious special unit of the police. Nevertheless, the people from the slums are also followed on this weekend back in droves to the protest call Guaidós. The thank you with the words: "This is the answer of a people that has no fear."

food-could bring the break

The feeling that it is crumbling in the state of Maduro, was on Saturday by a prominent side-exchange strengthened. The air force General Francisco Yánez announced via video message that he will henceforth follow the commands of the "legitimate President" Juan Guaidó. "90 percent of the armed forces" had been "against the dictator, and on the side of the people," he added. This may be exaggerated, but Yánez is the first high-ranking General who speaks out publicly against Nicolás Maduro. Now is expected, whether he is animated so that more dissidents. Without the loyalty of the army leadership, the government would have done, Maduro immediately at ease.

It was already clear that this 2. February 2019 would not be any day in Venezuelan history. Exactly 20 years earlier, the 2013 late Hugo Chávez took office as Venezuelan President, it is the day demonstrated that the Chavism is traditionally his Power. This time it was damage limitation. While Maduro was in the capital of a large lot to celebrate. Including a surprising number of seniors who had been carted off, with buses brought in.

With such political butter rides it will be hard for to delight in the crisis-stricken Venezuelans again for a future with Maduro. And also the announcement that later this year, early parliamentary elections, is in no way a peace offering to the Democrats in the country, but a further Affront. In Parliament, the Opposition has since the last free elections in Venezuela, a Two-thirds majority. Which is precisely why Maduro has disempowered it.

Guaidó, the President of this Parliament, wowed his audience on Saturday, especially with the announcement of humanitarian aid transports. They are to be brought in soon Colombia, Brazil and "a Caribbean island" into the country, he said. The procedural request is, on the one hand, it is urgent and on the other hand, is probably an ultimate showdown. Maduro has resisted, until now, always against humanitarian aid, because from his point of view, there is no humanitarian crisis, no Hunger and no health emergency.

it is established that no auxiliary transport can happen without the cooperation of the Venezuelan armed forces to the border. Guaidó calculated apparently as follows: If the long-awaited food and medicine are close enough to touch, then the army of the Venezuelan population will no longer be able to refuse to distribute them. But then you would have recognized the de facto leadership role Guaidós.
