Abajo Cadenas - Video of Demonstrations in Caracas, Venezuela on 2/4/2010

Abajo cadenas means down with chains and is part of Venezuela's national anthem. Below are translations of text that appears at the beginning of the video:

Venezuela"s Constitution

Article 68

Citizens have the right to demonstrate, peacefully and unarmed, with no restrictions except those established by law.


The students march peacefully towards the National Assembly to deliver a document proposing solutions to ALL Venezuelan's problems. The Metropolitan Police and the National Guard denied them this right. For this reason they instead went to Plaza Venezuela. There they were violently repressed by the government's security forces. This repression happened while Hugo Chavez took over national radio and television to celebrate his failed coup attempt of February 4, 1992.
