<nettime> Sorry Franz, no CIA

I was there Franz, I walked that February 27th at 1pm. in the
Avenida Libertador, cruce con Maripérez in Caracas, just 400
meters away from the G-15 meeting. When Chavez was giving Robert
Mugabe from Zimbawe a replica of Simon Bolivar´s sword (see Amnesty
International 2003 Report for his country in: http://web.amnesty.org/report2003/Zwe-summary-eng),
we were facing the National Guard, tear gas and bullets. I saw
them shooting, but couldn´t get away. I seldom participate in
any march, but I felt so much indignation at what the National
Electoral Board was doing, that I walked to the very front. Sorry
to missapoint you, but I was there, no CIA.
