#AlertaVenezuela: February 18, 2020

A group of Twitter accounts linked to Venezuelan right-wing movements, such as Rumbo Libertad and Derecha Ciudadana, pushed hashtags not only against Nicolás Maduro but also against Juan Guaidó on Twitter. In some tweets, the group asked for military intervention and misleadingly claimed that Guaidó supported the Maduro regime.

Spain’s position on Venezuela jeopardizes unified fight for democracy

Support shown to the Maduro regime on ideological grounds serves to fuel further polarization, not only in Venezuela, but around the world.

#AlertaVenezuela: February 4, 2020

A Twitter network previously reported by the DFRLab used random text, including snippets of poems, song lyrics, articles, and Wikipedia entries, to amplify anti-Guaidó hashtags on Twitter. The random text appeared to be unrelated to Guaidó and to the hashtags. The network’s actions suggest they engaged in inauthentic behavior to make the hashtags seem more popular than they were in an attempt to influence or manipulate the trending topics on Twitter.

On January 11, Juan Guaidó, president of the National Assembly who is recognized by more than 50 countries as interim president of Venezuela, announced his intention to appoint a presidential commission to oversee the restructuring of the Maduro regime-backed broadcaster Telesur.

PeaceGame Venezuela: Pathways to Peace

A year after Juan Guaidó took the presidential oath, nearly sixty countries now recognize the interim government as the legitimate representative of the Venezuelan people.
