Venezuelans back to support the opposition again  and Juan Gerardo Guaidó who is recognized as acting President of Venezuela

After weeks of bad economic conditions and cut off electricity in all the country pushed the Venezuelans to go back to street and demonstrate for supporting the opposition again the the former president Madore who considers himself the legal president of the country till now and run the authorities by passing the other acting president Gerardo .

In Caracas, thousands of opposition supporters assembled at a main rally point in the eastern El Marques district. Protesters said their homes had been without water for days and many had taken to drawing it from unsanitary pipes or streams running off the Avila mountain overlooking Caracas.

 According to the news said the Venezuelans, are suffering from hyperinflation and widespread shortages of food and medicine, which deepens the crisis and has worsened over the past month. That is when crippling nationwide power outages began to leave vast swaths of territory in the dark for days at a time, cutting off water supplies and cell phone service.

Guaido, head of the opposition-controlled National Assembly and recognized as Venezuela’s legitimate head of state by most Western nations, had called for rallies on Saturday to mark the start of what he has billed as a new wave of “definitive” protests to oust Maduro.

While no immediate protest-related violence was reported in Caracas, witnesses reported clashes between protesters and police in the steamy oil hub of Maracaibo. Demonstrators in the city, in the western state of Zulia, told Reuters police had fired rubber bullet rounds and tear gas to disperse them.

 Juan Guido invoked the constitution to assume an interim presidency in January, denouncing Maduro as a “usurper” for beginning a second term after a 2018 election widely considered fraudulent. Maduro, who retains the support of the military and allies including Russia and China, has derided Guaido as a U.S. puppet and said he will face justice.
