As Students Protest in Caracas, Repression Is Ready For Them » VENEZUELA-MEDIA-PROTESTS

Opponents to the Venezuelan government run to protect themselves from tear gas during clashes with riot police 28 May, 2007, in east Caracas, in the aftermath of the closure of private network RCTV (Radio Caracas Television). Venezuela’s oldest television network went off the air at midnight Sunday in a move slammed by the opposition as a new push by President Hugo Chavez to tighten his grip on the nation’s media. The closure of RCTV sparked many protests under a sizable police presence. AFP PHOTO/PEDRO REY
