Live Updates: Clashes Flare After Venezuela Opposition Leader Calls for Military Uprising – The New York Times

The government and supporters of Mr. Guaidó had encircled Mr. Maduro’s presidential palace by midmorning.

Videos posted on social media showed a crowd of protesters approaching the air base, waving Venezuelan flags.

“I believe this is very important, but I see apathy and fear in people,” said one of the protesters, Mary Galaviz, 69. “We should not be afraid. In war there is death, but goals are achieved.”

Miriam Segovia, 52, another protester near the base, said she hoped that the armed forces would “put themselves on the side of the Constitution, so we can escape this misery, this hunger and lack of medication.”
