True conspiracies

A good Reuters’ piece by Andrew Cawthrone and Girish Gupta, exposing the most extreme opposition wing and their protest movement.

Most of the people interviewed seem to be organized guarimberos and followers of the radical retired Venezuelan General Angel Vivas.

The authors tell of an increasingly organized, but still amateurish “resistance movement” –including “code names,” disguises, and the use of foreign languages to avoid detection.-

Far from Maduro’s narrative of a global “Madrid-Miami-Bogotá Axis” of conspiracy but still, as the article points put, useful for the government’s portrayal of all opposition leaders as coup mongers and plotters.
