Venezuelan opposition leaders call for 24-hour nationwide strike
Opposition leaders are calling for a nationwide strike after 7,186,170
Venezuelans participated in a symbolic referendum rejecting President
Nicolas Maduro's plans to rewrite the constitution.

CARACAS, VENEZUELA-Venezuela's opposition called Monday for a 24-hour
nationwide strike to pressure President Nicolas Maduro to drop plans to
rewrite the constitution while the United States threatened "strong and
swift economic actions" against his socialist administration if it ignores
the will of voters in a referendum.

U.S. President Donald Trumpjoined other world leaders in urging Maduro to
heed Sunday's symbolic plebiscite in which millions of voters rejected the
plan to remake Venezuela's political system, which the opposition calls a
power grab by the ruling party as it struggles with shortages, inflation and
more than 100 days of anti-government protests.

The vote came two weeks before Venezuela's government will hold an election
to select a constituent assembly charged with rewriting the constitution.
Canada, Mexico, Brazil and the European Union have also come out against the
effort.

"The United States will not stand by as Venezuela crumbles," Trump said in a
strongly worded statement, adding that in that country "courageous actions
continue to be ignored by a bad leader who dreams of becoming a dictator."


Despite the global and domestic calls for him to cancel the constituent
assembly, Maduro vowed to press ahead with it.


"I won't be intimidated," Venezuela's president said in a speech at the
presidential palace. Maduro's allies have called on the assembly to impose
executive branch authority over the few remaining institutions outside the
control of the ruling party.
