I’m at Simon de Bolívar square in Caracas where Venezuelans are lining up for blocks to sign a declaration denouncing US intervention and imperialism. One man waiting just told me: “Please put in your picture that we’re not invisible and not being paid.”

People have been waiting for hours at Simon de Bolívar plaza to sign a declaration opposing US intervention and aggression against Venezuela. Lines stretch for blocks. Maybe some other western media is here but I haven’t seen them.

The Venezuelan opposition and western corporate media want to frame a portrait of Maduro and the army against “the people.” That’s absolutely not what I saw today, where thousands were lining up for blocks all day to sign an open letter to Americans opposing US intervention.

While the US humanitarian “aid” propaganda show ramps up on the Colombian border, I visited a market in El Valle, Caracas where food provided by the government was sold well below market value. This is all taking place amidst an escalating US economic war & threats of invasion.

A similar open air market was held today in Parochia Macarao, a working class barrio on the edge of Caracas. Volunteers from the community sold food provided by the government at cut rate. I got to try the salt fish and meet Caracas Mayor !

Can you explain why this food is being sold like this and not in the supermarket. Seems a bit odd right? Have a think about how badly you're being misled. This portrayal is hugely misleading. Normal democracies don't have government issued food in the streets.

Normal democracies don't have sanctions and lame upper class that can stay in business only selling-off the country to the US. Corporations are hogging goods and not selling them in supermarkets. The US is sponsoring illegal currency exchange at rates that devalue the Bolivar. /1

This is the best way to counteract the artificial inflation and at the same time to provide for the people needs. ...plus, do you see hungry mobs assaulting the market? No need for intervention, only need to leave them alone. /2

And why exactly is there hyperinflation? Sanctions and middle class are not to blame for that. I think it's more of a ploy to control the impoverished.

Are you saying that the people over there is ALL the venezuelan people? Are you trying to say that my venezuelan family is a lier? Are trying to deny the million of people marching for a change? Where are you living, Venezuela or the US? Something about you doesnt fit!!!

I'm in the UK. NONE of our media has reported anything pro-government in weeks that I have heard. You would think everyone in Venezuela was praying for US intervention.

I'm Venezuelan. That area of the city is pro-dictartorship. Why didn't you go to other areas?. Most of venezuelans are against the dictator Maduro. You don't have any idea of what you are talking about.

You can have a look of this protest against the dictatorship - it would have been nice if the journalist went there as well to ask those people the same questions

Great job actually getting into Caracas ahead of Elliot Abrams’ death squads. Have you seen Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes yet? 🙄

Thanks for being one of very few journalists pushing back on this, Max. It’s the same folks time and time again that we rely on, and the same ones that push for wars they must know are highly immoral.

He's no journalist. At least, not a good one. He's lying. is in the middle of a crisis caused by Maduro's crappy socialist policies. No food, no medicines, no drinkable water, no electrical power. What a liar this guy is.

I’ve seen food in Venezuela with my own eyes. I’ve seen medicine in Venezuela with my own eyes. I’ve seen water in Venezuela with my own eyes. I’ve seen power in Venezuela with my own eyes. If there’s no food, water, electric power, how are you able to tweet me?

Another 1st world socialist. What fun you lot are. May I know how have you seen this and when? And what city? Because my mum and dad actually SURVIVE in Venezuela (I can’t say they live there) and they don’t see any of this, at least not with their pensions.

Just you know, asking for my parents. As it seems like you’ve got some sort of secret source of food, medicines and money in Venezuela...
