Chavistas March in Defense of Venezuela

Hundreds of Chavistas band together as they march in open rejection of U.S. interventionism Saturday in Caracas, Venezuela sending waves of support for “peace and sovereignty” in the nation.

"We say to the gringos: out of Venezuela, we do not want war in our country, we want peace," said Abraham Rios, a member of the First Black Revolutionary Front.

Miles away, along the Colombian-Venezuelan border, tensions rise as military stand poised, waiting for the U.S. to deliver the “humanitarian” aid promised to the self-declared interim president, Juan Guaido, an opposition lawmaker who made a claim for the presidency after an attempted coup on Jan. 23.
