The protest was held outside the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

More than a hundred people demonstrated Tuesday, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, against the "imperialist interference" in Venezuela and the recognition of Juan Guaido as "president in charge." The protest, which was held outside the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, was convened by the Left and Workers Front (FIT).

During the meeting, Christian Castillo, leader of the Socialist Workers Party (PTS), criticized those politicians who present themselves as Democrats but support dictatorial solutions to the Venezuelan internal conflict.

"In these weeks we have seen multiple samples of cynicism. Those who defend and are friends with the most dictatorial governments on the planet, like Trump, pose as Democrats. Those who are tributaries of the Latin American coup-led right pose as Democrats. Macri, heir of a clan that was enriched by the dictatorship, all of them say that, in Venezuela, they want to defend democracy and human rights," Castillo said and emphasized that "they want to force a coup d'etat or another U.S.-favorable exit."

Myriam Bregman, who is a FIT legislator in the city of Buenos Aires, stressed that U.S. President Donald Trump and his allies cannot bring out anything good for the people of Venezuela.

"It is clear that the United States does not care about human rights. The only thing that it is interested in is in doing business, in this case [with] the Venezuelan oil. We repudiate the imperialist interference and repudiate that Argentina's President Mauricio Macri has aligned on that side," Bregman said, according to La Izquierda Diario.

Some banners at the Buenos Aires demonstration displayed messages that read "Trump, Bolsonaro and Macri get out of Venezuela," "Down with the imperialist coup in Venezuela" and "Yankees out of Latin America."
