Venezuelan forces block aid from US and Canada

Venezuelan forces block aid from US and Canada

The Tienditas International Bridge has been blockaded with an oil tanker and makeshift fencing by Maduro’s forces. He is preventing aid from entering, declaring that Venezuela is not a nation of ’beggars’. The US and Canada have pledged over $70 million in aid, which workers are optimistic will still enter, despite Maduro’s blockading efforts.

they are being crippled under US sanctions, but they block aid from coming in, and let me take a guess who sent the aid. The United States... Because all of a sudden they actually care about the Venezuelan people. Looks like fake news too me. Would be happy to be proven otherwise, but mainstream media have lied about Venezuela so much, I find anything they report on the subject highly dubious. Abby Martin from Empire Files has spent a lot of time on the ground in Venezuela, and she along with many other independent media outlets tell a vastly different story, and American history seems to back her version. Instead of the mainstream reporting anything that furthers the US agenda of global obedience. Remember who it was that helped push the Iraq war, a country that never attacked the US and didn't have the WMDs that even Robert Mueller publicly lied to congress about. The world has seen the US play this game so many times, you might force some allies to support this crime, but the majority of the world can see this ploy for what it is.

No despot allows humanitarian help without taking his cut. That's the norm in Africa, Middle East. The population is literally being held hostage.

Not siding with Maduro but you can't really blame him. Strategically, he probably senses the " humanitarian aid" will also come with spies.

It actually kind of amazes me how they actually do this. On an American road if you tried to pull a stunt like this they’d have the blockade out within a few hours. In Texas people would just drive off of the freeway and onto a feeder road.

The police ended up removing the blockade and the aide went through.
