Activist Arrests Reported at Venezuelan Embassy in Washington
Four activists who had been living at the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington for weeks were arrested by police on May 16, the Washington Post reported. Anti-war activists from Code Pink and Popular Resistance entered the embassy on April 10 at the invitation of the Maduro government in Venezuela, in an attempt to prevent diplomats for the country’s opposition government from moving into the building, DCist reported. At 9.30 am, Popular Resistance activist Kevin Zeese, who was reportedly in the embassy, said, “The police have broken in and say they will arrest us.” This footage was captured by an embassy employee and shows a heavy police presence outside the building. Protesters can also be seen in the footage. The protesters were supporters of opposition leader Juan Guado, according to the Washington Post. Credit: Brian Fincheltub via Storyful
