Cuban Embassy in Venezuela Reinforces Outer Walls Amid Armed Uprisings

The reason for the increased security is unconfirmed, but social media has been abuzz with speculation that the wall intends to protect against a wave of violent backlash to Maduro’s policies. (Twitter)

Workers are currently reinforcing the Cuban Embassy with cinderblocks and steel bars as the country’s crisis continues to worsen under the regime of President Nicolás Maduro.

The reason for the increased security is unconfirmed, but social media has been abuzz with speculation that the wall intends to protect against a wave of violent backlash to Maduro’s policies. This weekend, a military uprising saw a group of rogue army officers steel weapons from a military base. Some believe the Cuban embassy’s extra protection comes in response to an even larger attempted coup.

The Cuban embassy represent the regime’s primary political and economic ally. The building was attacked in 2002 during a demonstration against Havana’s interference in Venezuelan affairs.

Cuba has been an ally of Venezuela since late-President Hugo Chavez came to power. Since then, the two countries have steadily improved their bilateral relations through joint ventures, financial transactions and energy resource exchange, as well as cooperation in intelligence and military endeavors.

Cuba came to Venezuela’s defense after near-unanimous international outcry denounced the country’s transparently fraudulent elections for a Constituent Assembly planning to rewrite the constitution.
