USA trying to remove protesters from Venezuelan Embassy in DC

Supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido take part in a rally in support of the Venezuelan National Assembly in Caracas

Supporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido take part in a rally in support of the Venezuelan National Assembly in Caracas

Just prior to the opposition's call for United States military assistance, Faller stated that he "looks forward" to discussing how the U.S. can "support the future role" of dissidents to "restore constitutional order".

Zeese said there are a total of four protesters inside, but only two other people came to the window.

As they were on the verge of being raided, activists released a video statement, vowing to continue the fight.

The threats against the legitimate Venezuelan President, Nicolas Maduro, from American officials and the Gauido, who all the time assumes the right to call for a foreign invasion, have nothing to do with democracy, he stated. This month Manuel Cristopher Figuera, a former head of the Venezuelan intelligence service, declared his support for Juan Guaidó, 35, who is recognised by most western nations as the country's interim president.

NASA says the moon is shrinking and experiencing "moonquakes"
Boulder tracks near faults in Schrödinger basin have been attributed to recent boulder falls induced by seismic shaking. Important as this discovery is, scientists think the moon isn't the solar system's only object shrinking with age.

In a statement on Monday, a State Department official reiterated the USA position against the Maduro government and said Carlos Vecchio, who Guaido has declared the Venezuelan ambassador to the U.S., requested US assistance.

The State Department said Tuesday that "until the trespassers are gone, no individuals will be permitted to enter the embassy".

Guaido has declared himself the legitimate leader of Venezuela with the support of the United States and other nations, while the embattled Maduro has stood firm as tensions mount.

The protest started with at least 30 activists staying at the embassy, but their numbers have dwindled considerably. They have been without power since last week.
