Venezuela's VP leads rally in commemoration of February 4, 1992
Senior officials have attended the event at the Historic Military Museum in Caracas
The event, which took place at the Historic Military Museum, west Caracas, was broadcast nationwide and been attended by several senior officials, including the Vice-President Nicolás Maduro and Congress Speaker Diosdado Cabello. High-rank members of the Bolivarian Armed Forces were also present.
The ceremony began with a one-minute silence in honor of the soldiers who died during the coup d'etat of February 4, 1992, led by Chávez.
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.
