Venezuela's VP: No right-wing will be able to delete Chávez's legacy
Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said that the planes flying over the rally staged downtown Caracas on Thursday clearly expressed the support of the military-civilian union to President Hugo Chávez's project
Maduro, who is also the foreign affairs minister of Venezuela, added that Chávez is struggling for his life and sent him a message: "Do not worry, commander. This is our message from Venezuela: Keep on fighting. In the meantime, the people, your people, the Government, and the Armed Forces are standing up firmly."
During his speech, the vice-president showed his gratitude for the demonstrations of love, strength, and solidarity expressed by international leaders attending the event, and stressed that the rally showed that independence is one of the key aspects of the Bolivarian revolution.
According to Maduro, President Chávez has focused on working for independence and true unity among peoples. "Under President Hugo Chávez's leadership, Bolívar's dream (The Liberator), which was the creation of a Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, became true. No right-wing with no feelings whatsoever for the homeland will be able to delete Commander Hugo Chávez's legacy."
As aircrafts from the Venezuelan Air Force flew over Caracas during the rally, Maduro warned that the message was very clear: The military-civilian union supports the project of President Chávez.

At least 30 years had passed since his last visit to Caracas. He had little time to become an expert on moving about in such a complicated metropolis.
