FIM marched through the Cuban Embassy

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 was reported.

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.
