"Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them. Those who believe that things cannot change will start to wake up as long as each of us, the force that drives the change, does what we have to do about the future," Capriles said in a letter published in his personal blog.
As late as Tuesday, February 25, there was some visible response from Gabriela Ramírez's office. Representatives of the Office of the Ombudswoman would visit independent human rights watch groups to find what happened in connection with repression of protests. That day, they visited NGO Provea. The next day, they met with the attorneys of NGO Venezuelan Criminal Forum. They pursued specific data because -they argued- no claims of human rights violations of demonstrators had been filed with the Office of the Ombudswoman.
