Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro held opposition state Governor Henrique Capriles and Mayor Gerardo Blyde accountable for what may happen to the Cuban Embassy in Venezuela.

Maduro's statements were issued in response to a student demonstration staged on Thursday nearby the Cuban Embassy. The vice-minister claimed that the students involved are militants of the right-wing and attempted to break in, "just like on April 11, 2002."

Maduro remarked that the authorities performed their duties. He also warned that both the General Attorney and the courts have been requested to be alert to any event.

The vice-president called for the rejection of any attack against "revolutionary and decent Cuba" and regarded the demonstration as "despicable."

For most of us it is a section on the map with black and white stripes on it, a depiction of something distant, alien, a nothingness not worth paying much attention to in geography classes back in elementary school.
