Retired army General Angel Vivas sported a flak jacket, assault rifle and handgun as he defiantly addressed dozens of neighbours from the balcony of his home in eastern Caracas.
I’m not going to surrender, the 57-year-old Gen Vivas yelled to a crowd of cheering followers.
Supporters rushed to Gen Vivas’ defence after he announced to his 100,000-plus followers on Twitter that a group of Cuban and Venezuelan henchmen had come looking for him. The officers withdrew after the crowd built barricades outside Gen Vivas’ house. Gen Vivas’ lawyer said they didn’t have an arrest order.
Mr Maduro on Saturday ordered Gen Vivas’ arrest for allegedly encouraging students to stretch wire across streets where they’ve set up barricades in recent weeks. The president blames the apparent booby trap for the death of a government supporter who raced into a barricade on a motorcycle.
Gen Vivas, one of the government’s fiercest critics in the frequently vicious world of Venezuelan social media, rose to prominence in 2007 when he resigned as head of the Defence Ministry’s engineering department rather than order his subalterns to swear to the Cuban-inspired oath Fatherland, socialism or death.
Maduro is gone. That picture should make us think differently about the AR-15. Anyone who seeks to take them away from us is trying to make us slaves. They need to be, uh, removed from office. By the votes, or not.
This guy is pretty brave or nuts. They could have used a sniper but they didn’t
Add one more name to the very very long list of opposition leaders better qualified to run Venezuela than the bus driver Maduro
Warning to the commie thugs in charge of Venezuela.
