Those who live overseas should take into account the social composition of those who are protesting, and of those who are trying to maintain control.

The majority of Bolivarian National Guards come from the barrios, from the popular sectors, from small towns and humble zones and other parts of the country.

Those who protest are, in their majority, from the middle and middle-upper classes of the four most populated cities….They are mostly university graduates who work for a wage, or professionals who work on their own, or university students, or small business owners.

Sometimes, they earn the same salary as someone who lives in a barrio. But someone made them believe that they are a ‘higher class’, just because they live in the buildings in the east of Caracas and they have European lineage, while the others live in a little humble house.
