Venezuela's Guaido calls for new rally as lawmakers declare 'alarm'Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido on Monday called for a new mass demonstration as the country’s devastating blackout that has left millions without power entered its fifth day. “Tomorrow at three o’clock in the afternoon, all of Venezuela will be on the streets” to protest against President Nicolas Maduro, Guaido said in a speech to the National Assembly legislature, which he heads. Parliament accepted the 35-year-old’s request to declare a “state of alarm” to pave the way for the delivery of international aid, 250 tons of which has been stuck for a month at Venezuela’s borders with Colombia and Brazil.
