Tear Gas hits everybody, march reaches Assembly, highway blocked again

November 20, 2002

The march was mostly normal. At the end, the National Guard dropped tear gas on some people that stayed near downtown a little too long. Perhaps there was too much enthusiasm on the part of the Guards, but that is to be expected given how much they seem to be compromised with the government. There was tear gas for everyone.

On other news, the opposition blocked the Francisco Fajardo freeway again today. They threatened to bottled up Caracas until the workers union calls for a strike. The rebel military at Plaza Altamira seemed to distance themselves from this action.
