María Corina Machado, Venezuelan Venezuelan Coordinator, said on Wednesday that the country had never shown an extended spread of violence, as did Venezuelans in demonstrations.
"We have never seen a model such as today, where under-12s are arrested, as well as those who leave home," said Machado.
Venezuelan leader has stressed that this year's protests are not those of 2017, because the international community has not demanded that Maduro change its policy, but to abandon power.
"Nicolás Maduro does not demand a change in his policies or demand a date for elections. Democratic international communities understand that a demilitarized state must be dismantled," he concluded.
