Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma is on hunger strike

Dear Journalists,


Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma has declared a hunger strike inside the offices of the Organization of American States in Caracas. The 54 year old mayor is demanding:

1. That Hugo Chavez provide the funding to pay the salaries of his Mayor's Office employees. It seems that Chavez is illegally holding funds to the Mayor's office.

2. Chavez to stop the destruction of the Mayor's office.

3. That the OAS sends a mission to Caracas to see what is taking place in the Caracas Mayor's office, and that of the governors of states of Tachira, Zulia, Miranda, Carabobo y Nueva Esparta.
