9:22 am
and welcome to the program i'm wrong on venezuela's president is hailing victory after what he calls an attempted coup nicolas maduro is promising to prosecute those behind a dramatic attempt to remove him from office on tuesday opposition leader one cold on the army to oust majority but by the end of the day i was in hiding and dozens of people were injured in scuffles with security forces. that supports us to hold more protests has the backing of more than fifty countries including the united states which is calling for a peaceful transition of power but secretary of state warned military action is possible if that's what's required we'll get to our discussion in a moment but first this report from our latin america editor the see anyone. it was perhaps his boldest move yes opposition leader one wide all appearing before dawn in front of
9:23 am
a caracas air force base surrounded by some twenty five soldiers appealing to the military to join him by his side was leopoldo lopez perhaps than israel's most famous political prisoner he announced he'd been released from house arrest by security forces who turned against president. kabila to defend freedom at with tyranny everyone out onto the street. opposition supporters answered the call but were pushed back by security forces dozens were injured in clashes between pro and anti-government groups. after he and lopez took part in a march why dog disappeared from sight and the nagging rumors that he would be arrested but come nightfall he issued a new call from an undisclosed location venezuelans to rise up again. we will continue calling on the armed forces to take part in the final phase of operation liberty to rescue our dignity that is why on may one we will go back onto
9:24 am
the streets nationwide gathering in the areas we have already designated. president maduro responded on nationwide television surrounded by army officers whose continued support he depends on. this was truly a fake a minor a simulation and that's why eighty percent of the military and police who joined them in the beginning had left them by newt. but amid reports that his support may be cracking u.s. secretary of state might compel said had been about to step down and go to cuba but was dissuaded by russia another key ally maduro says that's rubbish and adding more fuel to the geopolitical crisis president donald trump is again pointing the finger at his warning unless it immediately withdraw what he calls military help to the macdougall regime he will slap on what he is now describing as a full and complete embargo as well as height will be economic and financial
9:25 am
sanctions. in venezuela weibo and mother who are both planning to mark international workers day with a major show of strength on the streets one to try to force the president from power the other to try to maintain it you see in human. have. let's bring in our panel joining me on skype from miami roman former mayor of chuck our district which is an opposition stronghold in caracas from merida venezuela also on skype paul dobson journalist at venezuela analysis dot com and from work in the u.k. tom long professor of south american politics at work university welcome all to the program i want to bring in ramon which. first i saw on t.v. as we all did a very bold statement a very grand statement that the attempted coup was underway now he's in hiding is
9:26 am
this it for him as he finished. well no i mean what happened yesterday manish was. try trace it and wait till. it to move forward and. the regime in a situation where the military around. will just need to recognize plato or as a precedent i mean this is not i mean it's intuition administrates it really hard and really difficult to understand many things moving at the same time but way too it's trying to push the military to change sites this is not easy we don't know if that's going to happen anytime soon but wait dog closely or for the last bit and it was easy it's frightening hard to reach that will let's bring in pulled over and
9:27 am
. in venezuela poll majority must be thinking that he's got the upper hand right now. without a doubt i think the events of yesterday were can only be considered a failure for white zero five but only fifteen soldiers he did his call to rebel against their chain of command is definitely a victory for milo and the fact that mulroney didn't feel the need to come out and speak to the nation until the evening as well which shows that there are certain level column within his office and it was definitely no panic from the government and i think they were definitely fear that it was a victory for their side yesterday so long in warrick madeira has the support of not only fifty countries but the u.s. sorry greta has the support of the u.s. as well so fifty countries the u.s. yet still this coup seems to be faltering it's full of false starts in your opinion as a south american specialist is this just par for the course or would you think he's actually faltering and this is getting towards the end of the situation in
9:28 am
venezuela well i think there's been there's been a bit of a tendency to try to interpret what's happening in venezuela through a lens of great power politics that this is really about the u.s. russia and china squaring off in venice well or but i think the events of yesterday and really the events of the last few months show that the determinant factor is for what happens in minutes well are located within venezuela. and so i don't think that this situation is over yet though yesterday was not a good day for ford why though but a lot of the underlying problems are still there and unchanged so a very interesting point ramon i want to bring you in here it's not quite the end but yesterday was a bad day for gordo seems to be what we're hearing right now but has he got the support within the country if this isn't about international power play between
9:29 am
russia china and the u.s. he needs the support internally do you think he has the support why has not shown itself. in greater number yet there's no doubt one way though has a very strong a large soup or popular support is for the most venezuelans want one change as you know we haven't been to meet all of our great humanitarian crisis what we saw yesterday was not act cool a tent but an attempt by the way bill to be recognized as a legitimate president and start the transition in venezuela transition to back to the mother city and to have fair elections that the main thing wedo has it's a strong leader support he's not having military for yet and that's the only thing he really needs the only additional pain he needs to move forward and and to see him back to the ma prosy and open venezuela to receive international help
9:30 am
and some financing that it's much needed to reveal their country but again right now the point military support way does not have the military support he needs yet we don't know how long will this take but there's no way to resolve the venezuelan crisis we don't gating without getting out of power i mean there's no way out of the humanitarian crisis and the political crisis with my little bit of florida with motivate others will keep seeing the same he movie sic terror movie should i should say we are we're watching in venezuela but ramon if as you say he does have popular support the why hasn't that translated to support within the army soli the army know which way the wind is blowing. yeah well reason is that it's an it's a great question we don't have an army. in the state to share
9:31 am
mean we haven't won a ministry that but there is not an army as an organized institution that it's under the constitution when we haven't you know there's a bunch of people with arms but they are at the end not to the constitution but to my doodle and to challenge me and to the revolution so that's that's a key point chavis systematically destroying the armed forces in venezuela and there's no way i mean he's having a very difficult for them to react they have been trying i mean there's a lot of these going to incite the armed forces and we know that that these guys yesterday or oh it or a month ago we got everybody aswell rebellion the south and we have mean you know a baby here and there needed sorry it's there before and there are like more than five hundred military in colombia he crossed the border to do a trip to support away goals so i mean there's
9:32 am
a lot of these contained but for but there is no way for them there's no way to transform that and these contain inside the military can any city in all. of sirte to these from you know situational move forward to get rid of a muddle and support waiting hold of sun and let me bring you in here rome on literature as saying it's just a matter of time the army will change its mind and this is about tactics and just in some ways a waiting game to believe that. i think no i think any change in the political line of an estimate has to come to elections has to come through the ballot box when it's way to one of the many democratic countries in the world with around twenty elections in the last eighteen or nineteen yes. all of these elections have been observed by and independent international observers have declared to be free and fair and so i think if the venezuelans want to change the political course of a country they have accounted do it and there's a through an election. is
9:33 am
a way to have free elections in venezuela and like the last elections we had all these problems started when my little tried to sworn in as president after i mean lections it was not recognized by the democratic we're i mean there's no way to have square elections in ministry. just in a way and we now you know recognize their position to see how they are from or to see in the last elections you have to do it all up with for example or do they get up to this main opposition leaders we're now i'm able to even run ask candidates for sent them sell me there's that's what's going on i'm going to spread out so we need to get rid of my good always that dictator and then start transition that would get us to free and fair elections we international community monitoring that and let me bring in let me bring it home long ahead we've heard both of our guests that pro and mentor a point of view will probably get a point of view but we've heard the words peaceful transition of power there needs
9:34 am
to be elections in your opinion why didn't that happen before and is it possible with the political landscape as it currently is. well i would say that political scientists are largely in agreement that elections in venice will have gotten less free and fair for all sorts of reasons. as a sort of gradual process of the consolidation of power by the government. one point regarding the military as well i think it's important to remember that the military is not a monolithic institution either in terms of how it is organized or in terms of the politics of people within the military so part of the events of yesterday were not just to see whether the military as a whole would swing one way or the other but to see whether the military might
9:35 am
might fragments or indeed whether divisions within the my little government would would come to the light. coming back to your question about a negotiated transition yes i think that it is possible still. after the events of yesterday the immediate context for it is not particularly favorable. and that is some sort of a negotiation in which my ludo would allow greater representation of the opposition . first of all it's not clear for years that modo has been interested in doing anything along those lines but the events of yesterday give him very little motivation to do so unless he's given a strong push in that direction by other figures within the government or the military that's a very interesting point pull and i want to bring you in hey if he's so confident and mature is so confident that he has the populace most of the people want to just
9:36 am
call the election and be done with it. well i think that some extent it's a question of pride venezuela has its constitution venis way law is elections why should he call new elections just because donald trump and john bolton are calling and ramos out for calling fans that do say venezuela has three elections last year and and to some extent the venezuelans had their opportunity to l.a. they had two left wing candidate two right wing candidate the fact that some party decided not to participate doesn't mean it doesn't necessarily mean that the elections were unfair there was an opportunity for everyone to participate within the realms of venezuelan law so mother of a simply says why do we need to you know we're we're not we're not anybody black ice we're no a colony of the united states we had our elections and our laws said that these are the monday now last until two thousand and twenty five unless there is a recall referendum for a long research what's your response to that. well you just let me point out that
9:37 am
they are going to say tional american stages keep getting out my mother was representative and welcome that i would use a new way of representative. for representing now the benefit of the government because let the governments of the region just read the magazine for likely that they were not elections not favorite elections in many swear so you know that's a very hard fact it's very unusual to see something like these apennine ever being in in that place like they're going to say shut up american states but very very are going to there is no democracy but to say that there were no weather lections there's no way to happen let's do it looks and we need to get metal out of power to be able to move to have transmission back to the moxy it's a real i mean it's a very heart fact told long and. taking this broadening is how to read to the regional governments they must be looking at venezuela right now and wondering what
9:38 am
on earth is going on but wondering what influence they have who are the big players and what were they looking for as an outcome for venezuela. well i think one of the immediate outcomes that countries in south america are concerned about is the refugee crisis if you look at a country like colombia it's had more than a million venezuelans come across the border and this is a huge issue for colombia colombia of course is going through its own peace process and instability in the border regions many of which were at the center of the colombian conflict and continued to be at the center of all sorts of dynamics of organized crime contribute to instability and make it really difficult to consolidate any sort of a meaningful peace so that's a massive issue for colombia for brazil but really really for the entire region so stability is paramount also you certainly have countries with ideological interests
9:39 am
at stake that's become very clear in brazil with the positioning of. nato as well as the p.t. where venezuela has essentially become an extension of domestic political battles within within brazil so this is a this is a huge issue for different for different reasons but perhaps one where those countries are exercising less influence then than they they had they had hoped. part of that is because as long as the government is able to continue to have access to some sort of resources through the sale of oil even if that's the minish and it's able to maintain a relatively high degree of control over the armed forces it's able to consolidate and hold on to its position of defacto power with within venezuela quite
9:40 am
effectively let me bring in ramon. ramon one of the outcomes that certainly the u.s. is discussing in a wider signs rather than a. congressional or political sense is this idea that troops should u.s. troops may well intervene within the venezuelan conflict the venezuelan situation right now you don't want this to turn into an armed conflict in venezuela just for the sake of getting greta into power he. is adamant if i got your question. if it's about the possibility of the us using force or simply troops to banish the way that i think that. it's a very deep i mean it will be very difficult to get to that point i think sending troops to venezuela right now it's it will be part of a larger debate in the middle of a political competing in the u.s.
9:41 am
i don't think i don't see the u.s. government sending troops to venezuela anytime soon and i've been mulling scouting on that and i think the russians and the cubans are counting on that too so that's probably why those seems loose so relaxed. about what's going on i think he's really really sure that will never happen and colombia. you other guest was saying except that they are there is suffering for the migrant crisis but they are more than willing to keep a deal with that crisis instead of sending troops to venice way that all member of seal are farther much farther than the us from the city this so i'm not i don't see i don't foresee any action force a b. c. and any international troops going to any sway that any time soon however i
9:42 am
do think that's a possibility that should remain on the table and that we i mean i don't see any other way to get rid of muddle by the way i mean this is so hard so complex i don't see any other way to get out of muddle right now pulled over there's no other way of getting rid of madhura unless there is real military options on the table by the us is majority worried about this. well i mean this is a position from a crew member and he saw a democrat would say a lecture on this but you know we've already talked about it so i think you know i think by the order is definitely worried about the threats of u.s. action both overt and covert we can't really talk about u.s. intervention in its way without to craft covert action as well which has been going on for some time. for example we only saw today the u.s. have found low flying across in venezuela neath base which is a traditionally historically them is a precursor to airstrikes so this is
9:43 am
a very worrying piece of news coming out of the white house but the main point here and it's a following are the u.s. generally preparing for some sort of armed intervention in venezuela or all these sorts of actions are taken taking mere pressure tactics to try to change the dynamics of power internally in venezuela intervene let's say without actually pulling the trigger this is a question what you're trying to figure out here in venezuela and most venezuelans the vast majority don't pose to any sort of foreign intervention be it american colombian brazilian or from any other country so this will be definitely meet great resistance if the u.s. did decide to send troops on the ground to venezuela so long in workshop is the russian u.s. and chinese role helpful at all in the situation. no i don't think it's particularly helpful in finding a resolution certainly u.s. saber rattling i think is intended to create sort of a shadow of
9:44 am
