"Here in Argentina there are many people who have been escaping from the Nicolás Maduro regime, who are escaping from the crimes against humanity that today are being investigated by the International Criminal Court," said one of the Venezuelans who participated in the march.

“The decision that the Argentine government has taken to invite a group of people who have been linked to undermining democracy in the region is somewhat painful.

And for Venezuelans it is extremely painful to receive the people who have been responsible for so much suffering in Venezuela”, declared another of those present in Retiro.

The president of the PRO, Patricia Bullrich, was present at the place accompanied by other leaders of her party.

Bullrich submitted a request to the Argentine DEA office to detain Maduro when he arrives in the country.

the Buenos Aires official Waldo Wolff and other opposition legislators, such as the radicals Karina Banfi and Ricardo López Murphy, also promised their participation in the act, which is planned to be repeated on Tuesday in the same place.

"Venezuelan brother, join us to protest the presence of Nicolás Maduro and dictators in Buenos Aires Argentina. Attend," Blanco called from his personal Twitter account.

The confirmation of the visit of Presidents Maduro, Daniel Ortega (Nicaragua) and Miguel Díaz-Canel (Cuba) to Buenos Aires on the occasion of the Celac summit prompted many complaints and proposals from the opposition.
