Dear Journalists,

Please know that the Venezuelan opposition is organizing a number of street actions to counter the government decision not to renew a broadcast license for Radio Caracas Television (RCTV) as reported by

I will be following the events through out the long weekend, and adding updates to my blog as needed. I may only send one e-mail a day to the distribution lists.
