Update: Venezuela's Political Disaster - May 19, 2007

Dear Journalists,

Today's march protesting the announced closure of Radio Caracas Television (RCTV) was large, and so far there were no incidents reported.

Please click on the links below for reports and pictures:

Link to Marcel Granier, CEO of RCTV interview:

"Beyond my personal opinion, no country has addressed this issue (expirations of TV licenses) at the OAS Council, and as far as no country has raised this affair at the OAS or the Iberoamerican General Secretariat (SEGIB) or anywhere else, the international bodies are unlikely to do anything."
José Miguel Insulza, OAS Secretary-General of the Organization of American States

How can international organizations help? Isn't against the law to pressure judges?
