Attempts to mobilize the humanitarian relief have already turned violent on the Brazilian border, while security officials have hindered the movements of opposition lawmakers and National Assembly leader Juan Guaido, who is trying to rally the world as he attempts to break Maduro’s authoritarian rule.
