We want to tell Venezuela that it is not alone. They are attacking Venezuela for their struggle because the government is working for the good of the people,” said Thelma Cabrera, one of the members of the committee.

Hundreds of Indigenous Guatemalan campesinos marched to the Venezuelan embassy in the capital city of Guatemala, holding Venezuelan flags to show their support for and solidarity with the Bolivarian government of Nicolás Maduro in the face of violent opposition protests that have left more than 70 dead in the nation.

“We want to tell Venezuela that it is not alone. They are attacking Venezuela for their struggle because the government is working for the good of the people,” said Thelma Cabrera, who participated in the act of solidarity.

The solidarity rally was organized by the members of the Committee of Peasant Development, CODECA, and the Solidarity Coordinator with Venezuela. Demonstrators carried a banner with the message:

“We stand in solidarity with the government and people of Venezuela.”

“We want to tell Venezuela that it is not alone. They are attacking Venezuela for their struggle because the government is working for the good of the people,” said Thelma Cabrera, one of the members of the committee.

Cabrera said that she has demanded that his country’s government not promote actions against the Venezuelan government.

Since early April, the Venezuelan opposition has taken part in street protests that have been characterized as violent. The opposition groups use various types of weapons and homemade bombs to confront the security forces.

So far, opposition violence, concentrated in eastern Caracas, has left more than 70 dead, including people who did not participate in the protests, but were hit by bullets, as well as four people have been killed because of hate crimes against people identified as Chavistas.
