"Bolívar Avenue is too small for the crowd," said people taking part in the mass rally named "Heroic Venezuela," which was held in Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, on Sunday to support opposition presidential candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski ahead of the presidential election to be held next April 14.
Capriles remarked that Bolívar Avenue, downtown Caracas, "was to small" to hold the mass rally, thus proving that "Venezuela has stood up to say, yes we can."
The opposition leader stated, "People are calling for solutions to their problems and we have a government that lost its way; it is plagued with corruption has been seized by evil and hatred against Venezuelans (...) I have come here today to ask you to fight next to me, not to make me president, but to make Venezuela stand up."
At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis. Whether it was hopping on the subway, finding directions, playing waiting games at public agencies, eating whatever he could and sleeping wherever he could, Guerrero senior had been wandering the streets for 60 days, and thanks to "the boys" he found some sort of relief by way of helping hands.
