Last Saturday, May 6, 2019, Venezuelan working people held 358 rallies across the nation against both Maduro-led Bolivarian regime and the lack of safe water and energy.

The main demonstration ended in front of Corpoelec, the state-owned electricity corporation in Caracas.
At the same day, president Nicolas Maduro held a rally in front of Miraflores Palace. Previously he took preliminary steps to outlaw the US-backed and self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido and called paramilitary groups called “Colectivos” to strike the opposition rallies. These “colectivos” were renamed “Peace Squads” and allowed to carry weapons.
The main victims are the working people who have been living in poverty. Inflation rates reached 1,370,000% in one year (2018) and the GDP is expected to decrease 25% in 2019. Since 2013 the GDP has decreased 60%, twice the 1929-1934 depression in America.
CSP-Conlutas opposes both US-backed Juan Guaido and Maduro’s regime. CSP-Conlutas stands for a third alternative to be built by the working people as the only possible positive outcome.
