The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, said today that the Venezuelan people are suffering a “dirty war and without quarter” for their fight against the “dictatorship” of President Nicolás Maduro.
“They invent a dirty and bare war against the people because the people of Venezuela defy the dictatorship by claiming democracy and elections already,” Almagro said in his Twitter profile.
The secretary general of the OAS quoted in his message another tweet from the opponent, Henrique Capriles, who has denounced that the Venezuelan government has ordered the use of alleged paramilitary groups to act against those attending the demonstrations that have taken place in the country since April 1.
Venezuela is experiencing a wave of protests that has already reached 53 days in favor and against Chavismo, with disparate figures on the dead, as the Prosecutor’s Office reports at least 60 deaths and hundreds of wounded and arrested.
Both opponents and government officials have accused each other of the responsibility for these deaths, although so far the authorship of most of them is still unknown.
