Juan Guaidó, Venezuela’s would-be interim president, has been encouraging the country’s military to ditch President Nicolás Maduro as violent clashes escalated this weekend over aid shipments at the country’s border with Colombia. But Maduro can still count on the unswerving loyalty of the colectivos, thousands of heavily armed militiamen who’ve been cracking down on dissenters and keeping foreign aid from entering the country.
Trained during Hugo Chavez’s presidency, the militants have been acting as enforcers of government policy for years, intimidating or killing people who don’t fall in line. We met up with some of them to hear about the battle at the border.
