Information Minister: No date yet for Chávez's comeback
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez sends his "regards of fraternity, love and gratitude to the people, the National Bolivarian Armed Forces and the society as a whole for their solidarity"
"No return date has been scheduled yet," the minister affirmed, adding that "in every last nook and cranny both in Venezuela and around the world" have joined the president with prayers, support and solidarity.
The Venezuelan leader, Villegas quoted, sends his "regards of fraternity, love and gratitude to the people, the National Bolivarian Armed Forces and the society as a whole for their solidarity."
At the end of a Council of Ministers on Tuesday, the Information authority said that Néstor Reverol, the Minister of the Interior and Justice, briefed on Mission "At Full Life." He also disclosed the plans to call the media to a meeting aimed at discussing how they could help tackle the issue of violence.
He remembered that on Wednesday, January 23, government supporters would take the streets to Caracas to commemorate the day when the dictatorship of General Marcos Pérez Jiménez was toppled in 1958. Demonstrations had plans to start on three sites in the capital city, with 23 de Enero, western Caracas, as the ultimate meeting point.
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.
