The Washington-Guaido Mafia Supports the Dispossession and Looting of Venezuelan Resources

April 19, 2020

Pretending to be the acting president of the Venezuelan legislature, this Wednesday, April 15, Juan Guaidó has once again led a looting maneuver against Venezuelan money just when the country is most in need of resources due to the Covid-19 pandemic and to the multifaceted financial pressures that Washington exerts against Caracas.

The annulment of Parliament

Through a videoconference, Guaidó led a kind of informal meeting of deputies from opposition political parties to “decide” (outside their competences) on a set of issues related to Venezuelan finances that are beyond their powers. In principle, Guaidó does not institutionally dominate the Parliament, but once he proclaim himself president of the country in a public square, with the support of Washington, the border between fiction and reality disappears.

The actions taken since 2019 by the National Assembly have been aimed at endowing the supposed “interim government” of Guaidó with a strange legal body, with a view to investing institutional legitimacy in the capture, theft and looting of oil assets and liquid resources of the country.

This has represented a blow to the Venezuelan state model, along with the balance of powers that the Constitution expresses. By US mandate, Guaidó is “president” of two public powers (the executive and the legislative) and the period of his virtual “government” has a time limit until “the usurpation ends.” A legal delusion.

Although this invention has no handles in the legal and political reality of the country, the ideological production and organizational model of the “interim government” resembles that of a protectorate with a parliamentary fiction.
