Despite the rising insecurity and the lack of basic goods in Venezuela, part of its society still backs Nicolas Maduro, including the poor neighbourhood “23 de enero”, a bastion of support for Hugo Chavez who lies in the hills of northwest Caracas. Pressure keeps raising in Venezuela, as the self-proclaimed president Juan Guaido successfully returned in Venezuela and called on new protests against Nicolas Maduro’s regime. FRANCE 24’s reporters went to “23 de enero”, a poor neighbourhood where inhabitants still mourn Hugo Chavez six years after his death and consider Nicolas Maduro as his legitimate heir.
