Juan Guaido continued his tour of Venezuela today in dramatic fashion, arriving to Margarita Island with a fleet of small boats while waving a Venezualan flag in the air.
Once in the island, Guaido spoke to supporters about the efforts that the opposition is undertaking to secure international backing–including in the form of financing–to help the country move forward.
The video below shows the moment that Guaido and his entourage came ashore:

Gov’t Denounces US Funds for Opposition
Caracas reacted today to reports that Washington is diverting money from programs in Central America to help fund Guaido’s office.
The reaction came via Minister of Foreign Affairs Jorge Arreaza, who said on Twitter:
As part of its obsessive and continued aggression, the US government is diverting funds destined to social development programs in Central America to finance the coup de etat in Venezuela. This money will surely be stolen by their coupist friends [the opposition].
Two days ago, the Los Angeles Times reported that the White House is diverting funds from Central America to the Venezuela opposition to the tune of $40 million.
