Venezuela opposition vows fresh massive protests despite deaths

Hundreds of workers desperate for information about their jobs gathered at the plant on Thursday to meet with government and military officials, as well as representatives of the dealership that brought the lawsuit.

In response to Wednesday's massive protests, which had always been in the works, Al-Jazeera reports Maduro ordered the Venezuelan military to march in Caracas in "defense of morality" and "in repudiation of the traitors of the country".

Tens of thousands of opponents of President Nicolas Maduro flooded the streets of Caracas amid confusion and tear gas Wednesday for what they've dubbed the "mother of all marches" against the embattled socialist leader.

He says Venezuela's government is not allowing the opposition "to organize in ways that expresses the views of the Venezuelan people".

After nearly three weeks of anti-government protests on the streets of Venezuela and coupled with Wednesdays figure, the current death toll has increased to eight people, including one police officer, and nearly one thousand people have been arrested. Demonstrators are calling for the resignation of President Nicolas Maduro amid the country's ongoing economic crisis.

Throughout the day, those rallies often devolved into clashes between demonstrators and security forces - chaotic, violent scenes rent by tear gas, tossed rocks and even two reported deaths.

A statement issued Thursday by spokesman Stephane Dujarric calls on the Venezuelan government and opposition to "engage sincerely to reactivate dialogue efforts, " especially on issues such as the balance of power among branches of government, the electoral calendar, human rights, truth and justice and the country's socio-economic situation". The ballot for state governors has been delayed since a year ago and elections authorities have not announced when it will be held.

Waving the country's red yellow and blue flags and shouting "No more dictatorship" and "Maduro out", tens of thousands of protesters converged from 26 different points spread across Caracas to attempt to march downtown to the Ombudsman's office. Rights group Penal Forum said more than 500 people had been arrested.

"On April 19, there's big march in Caracas, but we want people to keep coming in and sending stuff after the first shipment then well keep sending it", said Rueda.

Ricardo Rios, a mathematics professor at Central University in Caracas, said that Wednesday's march, organized by a coalition of opposition parties, was larger than the last major demonstration in September.

The opposition counters that Maduro, deeply unpopular as Venezuelans grapple with triple-digit inflation and shortages of food and basic consumer goods, is seeking to stay in power indefinitely by barring opposition leaders from office and quashing independent state institutions.

"The hour of combat has arrived", Maduro said.

GM can seek compensation and damages for its lost plant in several different worldwide venues, said Nigel Blackaby, a lawyer at the Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer law firm, which has battled Venezuela in several high-profile cases in global courts. "We are saddened by the deaths of a man and a woman and concerned at the reports of numerous persons injured".

"The US government, the state department, have given the green light, the approval for a coup process to intervene in Venezuela", Maduro said in a televised address Tuesday, according to The Guardian.

But the defense minister, General Vladimir Padrino Lopez, has pledged the army's "unconditional loyalty", while Maduro blasted Borges for inciting a "coup".

Foreign governments are also warning about the increasingly bellicose rhetoric coming from the government.
