A 2010 memo from Center for Applied Non-Violent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) seems to be playing out as planned in 2019.




A September 2010 memo by a US-funded soft power organization that helped train Venezuelan coup leader Juan Guaido and his allies identifies the potential collapse of the country’s electrical sector as "a watershed event" that "would likely have the impact of galvanizing public unrest in a way that no opposition group could ever hope to generate."

The memo has special relevance today as Guaido moves to exploit nationwide blackouts caused by a major failure at the Simon Bolivar Hydroelectric Plant at Guri dam – a crisis that Venezuela’s government blames on US sabotage....

Speculating on a "grave possibility that some 70 percent of the country’s electricity grid could go dark as soon as April 2010," the CANVAS leader stated that "an opposition group would be best served to take advantage of the situation and spin it against Chavez and towards their needs."
