From the other side, here are words of wisdom, peace, love and freedom from el Presidente Maduro:
Maduro said he won’t pull security forces off the streets until the opposition abandons violence and accepts his invitation for dialogue.
“This elected president, the son of Chávez, is going to keep protecting the people,” he said while holding up what he said was an improvised explosive device used by protesters to attack government buildings and security forces. “Nobody is going to blackmail me.” [Emphasis added.]
. . . .
Maduro for the first time Friday said that he’s investigating whether security forces opened fire at the Feb. 12 protests and said that as former member of Venezuela’s leftist underground, whose members were hunted down and tortured by state agents during the 1970s, his government has shown zero tolerance for human-rights abuses. [Emphasis added.]
Humpty Dumpty deserves the last words:
`When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’
`The question is,’ said Alice, `whether you can make words mean so many different things.’
`The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master — that’s all.’
Remember what happened to the late lamented el Presidente Dumpty?
After a very peaceful day, when Chavismo held its somewhat small march and the opposition, despite the limited media availability, held huge marches everywhere, including a massive one in Caracas as you can see by the overall view from that drone above, the evening has not been as quiet.
And it is hard to understand what is the Government’s strategy. What does it gain from sending the National Guard and “colectivos” at this time, on a Saturday night? After the march, students returned to Altamira and blocked their usual stretch, which is no more than around three sides of the square. They did this Thursday, nothing happened. Again last night, nothing happened. But tonight after a very peaceful day, the Guard went after them with the aggressive and armed colectivos, much like Wednesday. Really, what’s the point?
It would seem at this time, that it is to the Government’s advantage…
