As published by @VzlaAutonoma, they fired on the truck where the president loaded Guaidó was transported by orders of the regime governor Carmen Meléndez.
Human Rights defender Tamara Suju reported that the responsibility for the attack lies directly on the Maduro regime. The perpetrators were paramilitaries that are part of the PSUV Socialist Party, together with SEBIN agent.
On other hand, the President Guaidó said seeing the dictatorship point at me and our people neither scares me nor scares us. Guaido added, “When I entered this I knew what I was exposed to.”
Venezuelans maintain a permanent struggle against Maduro’s socialist regime.
Therefore, violent attacks and intimidation are part of the obstacles the opposition faces to get the tyrant out.
Socialism as an idea today travels the streets of the world trying to influence the citizens of other countries with the intention of destroying peace and people’s freedoms.
Also, the President Donald Trump at CPAC on the policies of the US left: “They want to turn the US into a large-scale Venezuela. We will never let it happen.”

Said Guaido, “If something happens to me, someone would take my place and Freedom will find its way.”
