The Military Institutional Front (FIM) Friday marched through
the Cuban Embassy in Caracas to protest what its leaders call
the "silent invasion" from the Caribbean island. No incident
Despite Baruta Municipality (southeastern Caracas) did not
grant permits for the demonstration, several dozen people
marched from Plaza Las Américas mall, in El Cafetal neighborhood,
through the Embassy, in Chuao.
"We are here to protest against this transition to communism
by Chávez; our President controls all the State powers,
and following (President Fidel) Castro example, (he would)
be restraining freedoms and violating human rights," said
Antonio Luján, 51, an unemployed engineer who took part
in the protest, AP reported.
