María Corina Machado, Coordinator of Vente Venezuela, said on Wednesday that the country had never seen a widespread pattern of violence, such as the Venezuelan people during the demonstrations.
"We have never seen a common pattern we see today when children under the age of 12 are detained and even taken from their homes," said Machado.
Vente Venezuela's leader stressed that this year's demonstrations differ from the 2017 demonstrations, as the international community does not require Maduro to change its policy, but to give up power.
"They do not require Nicolás Maduro to change their policy, they do not even require a date for the elections. The International Democratic Community realized that it was necessary to demolish it before the criminal state," he concluded.
