While the world’s attention was focused on the Venezuelan opposition, as it tried to transport US aid into Venezuela against the government’s will, a major protest took place in Caracas that was opposed to US intervention in Venezuela.

In what some would estimate were at least 100,000 protesters, supporters of the Bolivarian Revolution took to the streets, mostly wearing the red shirts of the movement.

President Maduro addressed the crowd, criticizing the opposition’s effort to illegally bring aid into Venezuela and pointing out that the government has already accepted aid from the European Union and other countries. He also argued that the US aid was designed to provide a pretext for US military intervention in Venezuela, which is why his government would not allow it to enter.

Very few international media outlets covered this demonstration of support for the Bolivarian Revolution and in opposition to US intervention.
