Hundred protesters intensively demonstrated all through Caracas to ask authorities for justice following the murder of Faddoul brothers Jason (12), Kevin (13) and Bryan (17) and their driver Miguel Rivas (30.)
In Vista Alegre, west Caracas, where the boys lived; Altamira, east Caracas, the Francisco Fajardo highway, and Urdaneta Avenue, downtown Caracas, demonstrators gathered to show repudiation against this case, while they asked authorities to protect the lives of people living in Venezuela.
Protesters expressing outrage and pain for the murder of the Faddoul brothers and Miguel Rivas comprised classmates, university students from several national universities, neighbor associations, and citizens in general.
Demonstrators shouted and demanded Hugo Chávez Government to make justice.
Road and freeway blockades, vigils, prayers and masses for the Faddoul brothers and Miguel Rivas took place throughout Caracas.
"Stop kidnappings" and "Mourning" read some of the banners the demonstrators carried, in an attempt to repudiate this crime.
Protesters sat down in the street outside the Ministry of the Interior and Justice, in Urdaneta Avenue, west Caracas, while others staged peaceful demonstrations in Altamira, east Caracas, the Francisco Fajardo Highway, and Vista Alegre, west Caracas.
