    Caracas, Jan 23 (Prensa Latina) Venezuelan president Nicolas Maduro, denounced today that local rightwing groups, supported by elements abroad, prepare a coup against the constitutional government of this nation, which they allege do not know. Financed by Colombian drugtraffickers and reactionary sectors of the United States rightwing, responsable for the coup attempt of 2014 and the one staged in 2002, organize a "forum" for next Monday and openly call to insubordination, said the President.

    Three former Latin American presidents are summoned to participate: Felipe Calderon of Mexico, Sebastian Piñera of Chile and Andres Pastrana of Colombia, he informed.

    They come to support a coup dÂ�état, he warned, but in case this comes to happen, they will be blood-stained forever.

    There is money from drugtrafficking involved in that alleged forum organized by a group that disavows this government and its institutions to sabotage public opinion, stressed Maduro.

    There is freedom of expression and everyone can emit their opinions freely, but with respect to the Constitution, said the President.

    He also recalled that the Piñera government privatized education in Chile, repressed students and the mapuches, while Calderon was linked to drugtrafficking in Mexico.
