Chavismo Concentrates In Miraflores In Defense Against Coup Attempt

In the early hours of the morning on April 30, right-wing leader Leopoldo López and the self-proclaimed “Interim President” lead a small group of military members in an attempt to block the highway outside the Carlota military base located on the east side of Caracas, calling for a military insurrection. Supporters of Chavismo quickly responded, concentrating outside the Miraflores Presidential Palace, prepared to defend the constitutional President Nicolás Maduro, democracy and the Bolivarian Revolution.
