Red Lines host Anya Parampil breaks down recent events in Venezuela, after US-backed coup leader Juan Guaidó was replaced as President of the country’s National Assembly by fellow members of the opposition. Anya cuts through the mainstream narrative, which claims the Venezuelan government blocked Guaidó from entering the National Assembly and demonstrates he appears to have staged the event in order to gain international support. Anya also speaks with Diego Sequera, an investigative journalist from the Venezuelan website Misión Verdad, to get the view from the ground in Caracas.
