Venezuela Opposition’s Lopez Says He’s Willing to Face Arrest

Leopoldo Lopez, the leader of the Venezuelan opposition party Voluntad Popular, said he’ll lead a march on Feb. 18 and possibly face arrest if Venezuela’s government follows through on threats to jail him.

“I’ve not committed any crime,” Lopez said in a YouTube video posted on his Twitter account today. “If there is a decision to illegally jail me, I’ll be there.”
