US worried about removal of TV channels in Venezuela

The US Government voiced on Monday concern about the suspension last weekend of some cable TV channels in Venezuela, including RCTV Internacional.

"Every time a government closes an independent network, it is a matter of concern. And we will express such concerns to any government, including the Venezuelan government," Philip Crowley, a spokesman of the US Department of State, said during a press conference, AFP quoted.

Crowley reported that the US Embassy in Caracas transmitted Washington view to local authorities last weekend.

Last Saturday, domestic cable operators removed the signal of RCTV Internacional and some other cable TV channels under a recent law that forces them to disseminate some messages from President Hugo Chávez.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
