On August 4 an attempt was made to assassinate the president of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro, whilst he was delivering a speech at central Bolivar Avenue in Caracas to commemorate the 81st anniversary of the Bolivarian National Guard. Fortunately, the president was unharmed during the attempt, however seven security personnel were injured. Two drones installed with explosives were utilised by the attackers and were destroyed by the military before they reached the president.
The president took to twitter and gave thanks to all those who oppose these attacks.
“I thank the peoples and governments of the world who have spoken out against the attack that aimed to end my life,”
We at Red youth and CPGB-ML reaffirm our solidarity with the Venezuelan people and the Bolivarian revolution.
