Who is Juan Guaido?, proclaimed by the opposition as Venezuelan acting president

Juan Guaido has declared himself president of Venezuela — a move quickly endorsed by several Latin American countries, as well as Canada and the United States. Just two months ago, many people around the world, and even inside Venezuela, may not have known Guaido’s name.

The 35-year-old engineer was a member of Venezuela’s Congress, elected to the National Assembly in 2015. He had long been an activist, organizing demonstrations against former president Hugo Chavez as part of a student-led movement. He took part in the 2017 protests across Venezuela after several opposition leaders were arrested.

Guaido became leader of the opposition in the legislature last year, and was sworn in as president of the National Assembly, just last month, one week before Nicolas Maduro was sworn in again as president.

Almost immediately, Guaido began urging the Venezuelan military and people to recognize him rather than Maduro as president. He was detained on his way to a political rally Jan. 13 but released after about an hour.

He spoke to supporters a short time later, declaring, “The game has changed.” “Here we are!” he said. “We are not afraid!”

Guaido’s party, Voluntad Popular (Will of the People) is a centrist social-democratic party. It holds just 14 of the national assembly’s 167 seats, but is a member of the Democratic Unity Roundtable coalition, which holds a super majority in the assembly.

According to the party’s website, its origins date back to 2004. It was formed to “promote social action and social leadership,” and it was officially recognized as a party in 2011.

Its manifesto states that it seeks to “bring together Venezuelans to work toward peace, freedom and democracy” and to “build a more secure, united and prosperous country where everyone will be entitled to all rights.”

The party was co-founded and is currently led by Leopoldo Lopez, a well-known political prisoner in Venezuela and Guaido’s mentor.

Lopez as recently released from detention, after three years in military lockup. He is still under house arrest but has vowed he will go back to prison before he gives up his fight to remove Maduro from office.

  1. This mofo is the usual masonic shill (Benjamin Franklin Lodge from NY), which is the same lodge of Soros. The Freemasonry is still hellbent on the demolition of Spain, here represented by the bananized goypublics in Latinoamérica. In this region that they call “Venezuela”, the script is blatant:
    a. To literally steal the petroleum, disguised as a “contract”, where the ziocompany gets 99% of the profit and the host state only gets 1% (Chavez had forced the international standard of 74% for the zios and 26% for “Venezuela”. Enough reason to become a target by the kosher mafia)
    b. To cause as much misery as possible, so the archontic entities that they serve can feed on all the suffering and pain that a generalized poverty causes (78% of people under the poverty line while literally floating on an ocean of petroleum!)
    c. All the relevant actors in “Venezuela” belong to the same categories: marrano (Capriles Radonsky, Maduro), crypto (Corina), Freemason (Chávez, Guaidó). See? Always the same show run by the Khazarians.
