Caracas, Apr 4 (Prensa Latina) Thousands of militants from the United Socialist Party of Venezuela are leading a march today to reject OAS interference in the internal affairs of the South American nation and to support President Nicolás Maduro's administration.

From 10:00 in the morning, we will gather on the Ombudsman's Office and walk to the corner of San Francisco, near the National Assembly, explained the vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Adán Chávez.

According to Chavez, the objective is to proclaim before the international public opinion the popular decision to face the coup attempt against the Bolivarian Revolution, perpetrated in the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) this Monday.

During a press conference, he said that the call also would repudiate the Parliament's (mainly opposition) purpose of dismissing the Supreme Court Justices (TSJ).

That procedure is typical of a coup attempt, because the National Assembly is in contempt and has no competence to make decisions of this type, he said.

With support from abroad, he said, the Venezuelan ultra-right aims to organize new guarimbas (violent demonstrations) with the aim of creating a suitable scenario for a coup, but the people and the Bolivarian Government will not allow it.

The PSUV march on Tuesday coincides with what was called last Sunday by the Bureau of Democratic Unity (MUD) and other opposition organizations to support Parliament in its claim to remove the TSJ magistrates from their posts for alleged attempt Of coup d'état.

The supporters of the MUD will also be concentrated at 10:00 am, but to the west, in Plaza Venezuela, to head for the seat of the Parliament, in the center of this capital.
