The day after Guaidó confirmed he’s leaving Barbados, the regime announced a parallel negotiation with the opposition. The thing is, that’s neither a negotiation nor an opposition. What is it, then?
It was the kind of incredible days we’re used to: at dawn, spectacular and hopeful news; at sunset, confusion and defeat. While night falls, Guaidó appears at the brink of jail and Maduro looks weaker and stronger at once. Let’s try to make sense of this, now.

Both the regime and Guaidó’s camp will move the struggle back to the main subject of our health crisis.
