Furious Venezuelans Chase Away President Maduro With Pots And Pans

from ZeroHedge:

Just days after a massive protest swept through Caracas, which according to estimates saw some 2 million participants demanding an end to Maduro’s reign, the Venezuelan president was chased at a regular political event by a crowd of angry protesters banging on pots yelling that they were hungry.

Videos published by activists from the Margarita locality of Villa Rosa on Friday night, showed scores of people banging pots and pans and jeering the socialist president during a visit to inspect state housing projects.

Scenes from the confrontation late Friday, which appeared in social media videos, captured the attention of Venezuelans, many of whom blame the unpopular president for the country’s food shortages. Maduro had traveled to Margarita Island off Venezuela’s northern coast to inaugurate a number of new public housing units and give a televised address to the near-insolvent nation. During the speech, he denounced his opponents’ calls for his removal from office, calling them “vampires” and saying they were preparing for violence.

However events quickly turned sour when the locals turned on their unpopular president. In one video, Mr. Maduro tries to calm the pot-bangers by walking among them, only to be surrounded as the furious crowd yells obscenities. “What is this?” an astounded voice behind the camera asks in one of the video clips according to the NYT.

It is extremely unusual to see Maduro openly booed. His public appearances are normally carefully choreographed to show only cheering red-shirted supporters, Reuters adds. “The people loathe him and last night they made that very clear with the pots-and-pans protest,” exulted opposition leader Henrique Capriles, who published three videos of the incident on his Twitter feed.
