Venezuela: Rosales Rally Attacked

Miguel Octavio describes a campaign rally by opposition candidate Manuel Rosales, who according to Octavio, “attacked with rocks, bottles and bullets by a bunch of intolerant people wearing red t-shirts and distributing pamphlets with a picture of Rosales at the Miraflores Palace on April 11th. 2002, asking that the law (??) be enforced in that case.” Oil Wars says I told you so and opposition blogger Francisco adds another item to his self-declared “Rosales-bashing spree.”
