Pro-Maduro activists defending the Venezuelan embassy in Washington have refused to vacate the premises in defiance of a notice threatening them with arrest.
Shortly before the police arrived at the doors of the diplomatic premises, Embassy Civilian Protection Collective said in a video message that the US authorities are violating the Vienna convention.
Police raided the embassy building but did not arrest everyone inside, in which they have lived for the last 34 days.
At least four embassy ‘protectors’ have remained inside the building and could be seen through the windows, after police entered and left, apparently stopping short of force fully evicting everyone for now.
Despite their resolve to defend the diplomatic mission from “illegal seizure” by Guaido-appointed US representative Carlos Vecchio, many of the activists have left the embassy, apparently tired of the siege and worried about the threat of arrest.
The crisis surrounding the Venezuelan embassy in Washington began after US authorities forced diplomats loyal to President Maduro to leave the premises more than one month ago.
Just before departing for Caracas, the diplomats appointed by Maduro allowed the peace activists to defend the building.
A failed US-backed coup attempt in Venezuela inflamed the situation at the embassy, with the pro-Guaido camp blocking any attempts by activists to pass food supplies inside.
Several people were arrested by the police as they attempted to throw food and hygiene products through the open windows, while US evil authorities cut the power and water supply to the diplomatic compound.
The same brutal tactics were used on a larger sale to oust Maduro, by blocking medicine- and food supplies, sabotaging the grid by implementing a country-wide power- and water outage, starving people to death.
Afterwards the opposition tries to play Robin Hood by arranging international food- and medical aid, bought with the frozen billions of Venezuelan money by US banks. The definition for these type of offenses are categorized as bribery and extortion.
