Opposition takes to the streets again

July 20, 2003

 



Despite heavy rain throughout the initial hour of the march, the people of Caracas retook the streets of Caracas today in a march/rally named the “The reencounter” called by the opposition in order to begin “heating up” the streets ahead of the magical date of August 19th. when the opposition will be able to submit a petition for the referendum. The rally was huge and while I would have saved energies for August 19th. it showed that the opposition can easily get people back into the streets. In fact, I think that once Aug. 19th. comes around, the amount of people willing to take to the streets in protest will increase significantly, people are simply fed up. In fact, recent polls by well reputed firms, show that the strategy of focusing on the problems rather than Chavez himself is paying off, Chavez’ popularity is down to 25% of which only 10% is considered to be hardcore.
