The opposition to the government of President Nicolas Maduro has lost followers despite its insistence on its destabilizing plans, expressed now with allegations of an alleged rupture of constitutional order in the country.
At midday on Friday, near Casa Amarilla (Yellow House), a building that identifies the Foreign Ministry, close to the defying equestrian statue of Liberator Simon Bolivar, two or three pedestrians were speaking about a decision by the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ).
'Maduro will leave now, let's go to the Court,' they said. Those few opponents were what local people identify as 'squalids', members of the opposition to the government.
Their expressions and others that are heard anywhere, without restrictions or repression, show that there are rights that are respected in this country, but at the same time, they are an indication that the opposition, although it tries to do otherwise, makes little noise and gets little.
On Saturday, opposition groups called marches, street rallies and other events to incite violence, something that, according to the lawmaker Julio Borges, must take place to attract more people, because, he noted, 'history is looking at us, the world is watching us.'
The current argument is simple, they claim that there is a 'rupture of constitutional order' in Venezuela to justify the activation of interfering plans, promoted by international interests.
According to Agencia Venezolana de Noticias (AVN), on Friday, the so-called Mesa de la Unidad Democratica (MUD) summoned its followers to a rally aimed at generating hotspots of violence on the streets of Caracas, a mission that failed, as part of a destabilizing plan boosted by the opposition, in conjunction with the international right wing.
The objective is the same as always, to destabilize the country and create a scenario conducive to a foreign intervention, which is supported by OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro, who ratifies that the so-called 'Ministry of Colonies' has eyes only for the left-wing governments and that the world can fall apart in other places blessed by the United States.
Although the main MUD leaders are abroad, who knows what are they doing, besides promoting the interfering agenda, the organization called a rally to reject sentences 155 and 156 issued by the Supreme Court of Justice to preserve the country's institutionalism.
This argument disappeared when the Nation's Defense Council, called by President Maduro, urged the TSJ to review those decisions in the items regarding parliamentary functions, an indication that the TSJ abided by.
Although a situation was rectified, the opposition insisted on its arguments and had an expected allied in Mercosur, the bloc that decided to activate the 'democratic clause' on Venezuela for an alleged 'rupture of democratic order' and that pointed that it will take that stance to other international organizations.
Evidence shows that the plans will continue to damage Venezuela internationally and to facilitate, with false news, a foreign intervention in the country.
On Saturday, the Mexican newspaper La Jornada called for an end to the media campaign of manipulated information against the Venezuelan government, orchestrated by the international right wing to create diplomatic tension in support for its plans.
They are trying to convince the international public opinion that there was a rupture of democratic order and constitutionality in Venezuela, the newspaper published.
In tune with its foreign allies, the MUD leaders who took to the streets of Caracas on Saturday were calling on their supporters to generate violence with an agitating discourse and aggressive actions against security forces.
However, the tense calm that has prevailed over the past few weeks remained, while the right-wing opposition is making less noise. Why? It has to be seen, either they have failed as an alternative or they are preparing something big and terrifying in Venezuela.
