Katy says: Our apologies for the silence the last few days: I have been travelling and Quico is tied up with personal issues.
This is as good a time as any to re-visit Quico’s thorough post on the events of April, 2002. It’s hard to believe five years have passed and we still don’t know who planted snipers on top of the buildings surrounding Miraflores to shoot at innocent bystanders. But I correct myself, in Chavez’s Venezuela impunity is not that hard to believe.
My hope is that all those whose lives were taken or changed for good that day can find peace and justice, be it in this world or in another.

We’ve been able to hang on for 21 years in one of the craziest media landscapes in the world. We’ve seen different media outlets in Venezuela (and abroad) closing shop, something we’re looking to avoid at all costs. Your collaboration goes a long way in helping us weather the storm.Donate
