Rumours of coup attempt next week in Venezuela

Although I have not kept up on the details of the political crisis in
Venezuela, rumours here in Bogota indicate that a coup attempt is
likely to happen early next week, in conjunction with the planned
'paro' organized by the business associations.

Mullitnational companies have cancelled travel plans for executives,
sales people, and technical people into Venezuela.

Bourgeois neighborhood associations have armed themselves.

Anti-Chaves forces within the military apparently have assisted them.

All the best, Anthony
