Wuilly Arteaga posts defiant video message from hospital bed as opposition announces fresh national strikes
Venezuela’s opposition announced a two-day national strike against President Nicolas Maduro after a day of violent clashes in Caracas on Saturday where the injured included a violinist who has become the face of the protests.
“Neither rubber bullets nor pellets will stop our fight for Venezuela’s independence,” said musician Wuilly Arteaga. The 23-year-old has become famous in Venezuela for playing the national anthem and other tunes on his violin in front of security lines as battles rage around him. “Tomorrow I will be back in the streets.”
