Why Venezuela’s ‘Two Presidents’ Are Ready to Talk

Nicolas Maduro and Juan Guaido have sparred for control of Venezuela for more than two years, each claiming to be country’s rightful president. Now, massive protests and police crackdowns have been replaced by sessions at the negotiating table. They’ve tried before, to little effect. What might be different this time? For one thing, Guaido and other members of the opposition have all but conceded that their attempts to oust Maduro have failed. On his side, Maduro has proved unable to stop Venezuela’s continuing economic collapse, in part because of tight economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. and other nations that continue to back Guaido.

In the right-wing and much of the mainstream media, Venezuela is often depicted as a once vibrant, thriving democracy that has been ruined by socialism.

HBO Max's A La Calle Documentary Sheds Light on the Humanitarian Crisis in Venezuela

We don't see enough news coverage surrounding the dictatorship and political repression that has led to the crumbling of Venezuela. But a new documentary out on HBO Max, A La Calle (or To the Streets) by Nelson G. Navarrete and Maxx Caicedo, is shedding a light on the country's humanitarian crisis. The film opens with an eerie score playing under scenes of unrest in Venezuela. It ends on a somewhat hopeful note as the opposition works to turn the military against authoritarian President Nicolás Maduro Moros. But Maduro is still in power today, and his administration keeps violating Venezuelans' human rights. In fact, Human Rights Watch has referred to the situation in Venezuela as a severe humanitarian emergency, with millions unable to access basic healthcare and adequate nutrition. According to the UN Refugee Agency, there are around four million Venezuelan refugees worldwide — making the South American country the second-largest source of refugees in the world, just behind Syria and above Afghanistan.
