The February 12-13 coup plot and its preparation throughout January-February 2015
The US government is behind the destabilization plans and attempted coup in Venezuela. They are working internationally to create the necessary conditions, using active spokespeople operating on behalf of the government and from Congress. They are working together with the corporate media and other players that are active against our country.
We only need to look at the declarations and provocations by these sectors to understand that this is the case.
The corporate media has been operating as an integrated whole: some of them send out the media message; others spread it throughout the world and in each country.
However, this plan of aggression has not only involved declarations and media lies, such as those spread against the President of the National Assembly, Deputy Diosdado Cabello, and initiated by the newspaper ABC through its Washington correspondent, Emili J. Blasco. This attack was no coincidence; it is part of a plan of aggression aimed at sowing confusion among the Venezuelan people and our military.
This confusion is part of a plan to sway public opinion and win over politicians from all parts of the world. Its aim is to prepare the path for further concrete actions.
Venezuelan authorities have been denouncing in a permanent and emphatic manner this continuous coup plot and all of its phases of activation. On February 12, the deactivation of a new coup plot was made public, one which the President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro Moros, declared to be a “coup attempt” as it involved various elements, from street violence to terrorist actions such as the bombing of specific targets in the city of Caracas, to a planned pre-recorded announcement by sectors from within the military.
Venezuelan authorities have proof of the plans existence, of which Venezuelan military and political figures were involved in it, and the relationship that some of them have with the US embassy in Venezuela.
