Coup in Venezuela?

Submitted by on 13 November, 2002 - 1:03

Right wing opposition leaders have again attempted to oust President Hugo Chavez in Venezuela over the last month. The opposition organised a demonstration on 10 October, involving around a million people. A general strike-lockout by employers and some unions took place on 21 October, and the following day dissident generals set up a "liberated zone" in Caracas. Chavez claims to have thwarted several attempts to assassinate him or overthrow his government.
