Despite "Absolute Calm" Claim, Venezuela Appears Just A Little Out Of Control

President Maduro and his ministers have stated (fully supported by Argentina):

  • *PEOPLE BEHIND YESTERDAY'S VIOLENCE WILL BE PUNISHED: ORTEGA
  • *VENEZUELA ISSUED ARREST ORDER FOR LEOPOLDO LOPEZ: VOLUNTAD
  • *VENEZUELA IN ABSOLUTE CALM, ORTEGA SAYS
  • *ARGENTINA SAYS IT FIRMLY SUPPORTS VENEZUELA'S GOVERNMENT

However, between armed groups reportedly firing shots (see clip below) into the Students Assembly and the disappearance of the protest leader, the protests appear to be anything but "calm."
