Demonstrators are gearing up for major demonstrations in front of the White House in Washington March 16 to protest President Donald Trump's violent attempts to overthrow the democratically elected Nicolas Maduro government in Venezuela.

“U.S. hands off Venezuela! NO to the coup — NO to sanctions — NO to a new U.S. war,” reads a statement by National Coalition (NC) and some 150 other organizations and individuals behind the Saturday protest.

The government of Cuba has rejected and described as a terrorist act the attack on Venezuela's electricity system which occurred last Thursday.

In a statement, the government of the Cuban Revolution argues that the attack has been "aimed at damaging the defenseless population to use as a hostage in the unconventional war unleashed by the United States against the Venezuelan government."

The Venezuelan Vice President of Communications, Jorge Rodríguez, stated that the national government has decided to extend the suspension of work activities and school classes for all levels of education for an additional 24 hours, in the context of the attack on the electricity system.

After a three-day power outage in Venezuela, the country’s electrical systemas are starting to return, particularly in the capital of Caracas.

A cyber attack perpetrated Thursday on the El Guri hydroelectric plant control system had left the Venezuelan population without electricity since that time.

Venezuelan Communication and Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez says it is “false” that there were 79 deaths in hospitals across Venezuela as a result of the country's electrical attack as many mainstream media are reporting.

“Seventy nine deaths. This is false,” declared Rodriguez in a Friday press conference.

During a speech in Caracas, Sunday, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro encouraged citizens to stay true to Chavismo and the soverienty of Venezuela as the 24-hour, nationwide U.S.-backed blackout continues.

"We will liberate the electrical company of infiltrators and saboteurs...We have overcome so many challenges, we'll overcome this one. We'll do it with love, resistance and revolutionary courage," Maduro said.

Thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets Saturday to march against interventionism in the country, as part of the celebrations of the national Bolivarian Anti-imperialist Day.
