Juan Guaidó gets all the media attention but his party is one of the smaller ones of the opposition

Talk I gave at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Geneseo (south of Rochester) on Thursday, Nov. 8. I was invited to Rochester by the Rochester Committee on Latin America (ROCLA), where I spoke at the United Presbyterian Church on Wednesday, the same day I was interviewed on WXII by Evan Dawson. One of the main points I made in these talks is that the mainstream media focuses on President Maduro but says very little about the opposition and leaves the impression that a radical fringe which the Trump administration has bolstered represents the entire opposition. But the fact is that Juan Guaidó’s Voluntad Popular party did not win any state in the gubernatorial elections of October 2017, the last one in which that party participated, while Democratic Action won in 4 states, and Primero Justicia won in the key state of Zulia.
