THOUSANDS OF VENEZUELANS CARRY BANNER IN CARACAS DURING STRIKE.
Carrying a large banner that reads "Damn the soldier who turn his
weapon on his people," tens of thousands of Venezuelans opposed to
President Hugo Chavez march during the continuation of nationwide
strike, in Caracas December 14, 2002. Chavez's opponents, who blame him
for pushing Venezuela into recession and political chaos, launched the
strike seeking to pressure him to resign or call early elections.
