Aid organizers fear Venezuela blockade


A call goes out and thousands of Venezuelan­s rush into Colombia, ignoring threats from their own military. Soon, they’re swarming back across the border carrying bags full of life saving food and medicine.

That’s one of the scenarios being floated as Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro continues to reject internatio­nal aid — going so far as to blockade a road that might have been used for its delivery.

On Friday, Lester Toledo, a representa­tive of Venezuela’s Interim President Juan Guaido, and who’s in charge of the internatio­nal aid effort, hinted that a “river of people” might be summoned to move goods that are being collected near the Colombian border town of Cucuta.
