Another opposition march repressed, nothing new in Venezuela

By Miguel Octavio | The Devil's Excrement

28.08.05 | Another opposition march repressed. A small march, mostly women, had permission from the police and the municipalities to go all the way to the National Assembly to hand in a document about political prisoners. The police blocked the path of the march, pro-Chavez groups attacked and there are six injured two critical.

Once again, the opposition has no possibility of exercizing its rights.

The police and National Guard act against the march.

The President of the Assembly who had guaranteed that they would not be attacked, blames the opposition.

The loyal Chavistas who attacked the march are unharmed and nobody from the Government criticizes them.

Another day in the pretty revolution!

(Meanwhile pro-Chavez groups are free to roam in Bolivar Square protesting against Pat Robertson, obviously they did not need a permit)
