Leopoldo Lopez has released a video filmed from his hiding place where even a painting in the wall was blurred.
What Lopez is saying is that next Tuesday (the 18) he will be leading a march to the interior ministry to submit a claim. Then, a few dozen yards before the door he will stop the march and walk alone, letting the regime assume its responsibility in arresting him, in front of gazillions cameras posted in front. To make the moment more dramatic he has asked to all that are willing to accompany him to dress in white, and takes as peaceful an attitude as they can come up with.
Of course the symbolism is rich, and richer than what you may think. For example white is also the color of choice to dress for many "santeros" and other assorted voodoo like sects, which have strangely flourished with the influence of Cuba over chavismo. That he goes to the interior ministry is also something because not only this is the ministry in charge of public order, but also the one whose head has been pretending to hold a dialogue to ensure the safety of Venezuelans. Amen that the current head, Rodriguez Torres, was also a coupmonger of 1992 in charge of killing the presidential family if needed.
By Tuesday all major networks in the world will be filming this human sacrifice. And Lopez will write his ticket to immortality, one way or another. Unless the regime finds a cope out. But even ransacking half of Caracas to find Lopez hiding place will not compensate.
Note: none of this is on Venezuelan TV or radio. The regime forbids it. And to make sure that the order is fulfilled the regime is holding as I type a cadena where Maduro is trying to put destruction perpetrated by his followers on the back of the opposition. In particular an alleged attack to dozens of metro bus units when the mayor of Baruta stated that he knows of none. In short, Twitter and international press have inflicted such damage on the regime that this one has gone into propaganda overdrive.
