The Vice President of Mobilization of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) Darío Vivas, informed on Thursday that the Venezuelan people will mobilize this Saturday in Caracas to commemorate the 17th anniversary of the popular victory before the coup d’état perpetrated against the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez, in 2002.
The concentration will start at 10 a.m. on the Nueva Granada avenue and when the mobilization begins, it will pass through the Inter-comunal avenue of El Valle, up to the Los Próceres promenade.
Vivas detailed that will also commemorate the 10 years of creation of the Bolivarian National Militia.
On April 11, 2002, the right wing, with support from the United States, gave a coup d’état to the legitimate Government of Commander Hugo Chávez.
In that coup were involved Fedecámaras (businessmen chamber), the Confederation of Workers of Venezuela, the private media, the hierarchy of the Catholic Church and leaders of the right wing parties.
They took President Chavez out of Miraflores for 47 hours, with proven participation by the CIA and other US State agencies. The coup was defeated by the mobilization of the people together with the Bolivarian National Armed Forces (Fanb) on April 13 with the return of Chávez to the government palace.
