Caracas, Jan 23 (Prensa Latina) The Venezuelan people will fill the streets of Caracas today in a march called by the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), to celebrate the January 23, 1958 coup d’etat and in support of democracy and President Hugo Chavez.
Social organizations, labor groups, parties and allied groups who are part of the Great Patriotic Pole, along with the people in general will participate in this great march known as “La toma de Caracas,” said Dario Vivas, national coordinator of the PSUV Mobilization.
A civil-military uprising that overthrew the dictatorial regime of Marcos Perez Jimenez took place on January 23, 1958.
Vivas stated that this “is a date that belongs to the Venezuelan people for their search of tranquility, peace, democracy, more participation, against exclusion and demanding a better distribution of wealth”, rights that were claimed in
1998, when the Bolivarian Revolution triumphed.
Participants in the rally will leave for three points of this capital: La Bandera terminal, Libertador Avenue and Propatria Metro station, to tour the streets and rally on January 23.
We will mobilize with the slogan that the city will never be betrayed, as well as in defense of democracy and institutions, Vivas said.
