Residents in the El Valle area of Caracas set alight to an effigy of US President Donald Trump as part of an Easter Sunday tradition which usually sees Judas go up in flames. Around 92 percent of Venezuelans are at least nominally Catholic. Every year they hang dolls stuffed with hay and old clothes on Good Friday, and then burn them on Easter Sunday — representing the burning of anything bad... Еще and the triumph of good over evil. Gabriel Brito, one of the protesters and a member of the Socialist Party, said that event was organised to show 'permanent resistance' through 'peace.' The Catholic tradition of burning Judas is common worldwide, including in Mexico, Brazil and Spain.
