Anti-Chávez protests in the US to mark anniversary of April 2002 events

Venezuelan opposition organizations are staging demonstrations in Miami and other cities in the United States and the rest of the world to reject President Hugo Chávez's government, on the occasion of the 6th anniversary of the violent events in Caracas in April, 2002 that left 19 dead people and provoked a brief coup d'état against the Venezuelan ruler.

The protests will be part of a world demonstration named "No More Chávez." The demonstration was organized by organizations of Venezuelan emigrants and opposition groups comprising the network of Resistencia Civil de Venezolanos en el Exterior (Recivex), reported organizers, as quoted by AFP.

Similar protests are scheduled to take place in different towns in Venezuela, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Chile, Canada, Mexico and several European countries, such as Spain, Switzerland, Germany and Great Britain, they added.
