Caracas Caracas, Venezuela (AFP) The capital is a city of more than 30 million people.
But what does the city’s name mean?
It means “the capital of the revolution”.
That revolution is being led by the socialist government led by Nicolás Maduro, who is also president of Venezuela.
Caracas has a vibrant nightlife, and there’s been a surge in popularity of the city of over 300,000 since he took office.
On Twitter, it’s been the Caracas to London to Paris.
But in Spanish, it has been to the Netherlands to the US.
It’s also the place where Venezuelans go to find out what’s going on in their country.
The city is known for its red, white and blue colours, and its red-winged tortoise and white-wing-tailed eagle are popular with tourists.
But the capital’s nickname is a play on the word ‘car’, which means “city” in Spanish.
It is also a city where many of the wealthiest people live.
“I love it, I love it,” said Angel Rodriguez, who runs a bar in Caracas called ‘El Techo’ that has been on Twitter since January.
“We’ve had so many people come and ask me to do a show for them, and they ask me for money.
I’m here for them.”
‘I feel a sense of solidarity’ ‘We are not like this in our country, but I feel a feeling of solidarity here,’ said the 35-year-old Colombian who says he’s been on social media since the election of the socialist leader.
“I feel like my identity is being taken away from me, so I feel like I’m losing something.”
The Venezuelan people have been so strong in this revolution, so we are not just people who are in one country, we are a people.
“And the revolution is not just against the government.
We are a country with many people who have never experienced a president.
And that’s why it is so important that the people, especially the younger people, who are on social platforms like Twitter, have a voice.”‘
The revolution is about dignity and freedom” ‘This is the beginning of the end, I feel that we are coming to a point that the revolution can not continue,’ said 23-year old María Luisa, who says she used to live in Venezuela for about a year but now lives in the US state of New York.
She’s a student and a supporter of the Bolivarian revolution, which Maduro has led since 2014.’
The revolutionary movement will continue to grow, it will continue, and the revolution will be stronger than ever.
But I feel the revolution has already reached its limits.
‘We are no longer in Venezuela.
We have lost the power to govern ourselves and this is the end.”
The Maduro government is using all the means in its power to make us look like criminals’ ‘It’s not enough to just say, ‘We have the power, we will do this’.’
It’s the right of every Venezuelan citizen to participate in the political process.
And I am here because I have seen that this government has taken all the steps necessary to keep us under control.
I have seen all the measures that have been taken to keep the Venezuelan people under control, to stop the revolution.
They have taken away the right to free expression, the right for people to decide their own futures, to vote and the right on how they choose to live their lives.’
‘The state of the country is in a state of chaos” ‘Our revolution has not just started in Venezuela, it is spreading to other parts of the world,’ said 19-year veteran actor Diego Alvarado.
‘We don’t want to be in the same country that was destroyed by a war, we don’t need to be at the same point where we are.
We do not want to stay in a country where there is violence, where there are crimes and crimes against humanity.
He is part of a group of activists who have been protesting outside the headquarters of Venezuela’s National Assembly in Caracol since November.
‘What we are trying to do is to demonstrate that there is a revolution going on here, that there are people here that are standing up against the dictatorship,’ he said.
Venezuela’s opposition says it is ‘ready to sacrifice’ to oust Maduro
