Chávez's followers commemorate 55th anniversary of democracy


People supporting President Hugo Chávez gathered at different spots in Caracas to commemorate "January 23, 1958," the date that marked the end of the military dictatorship led by General Marcos Pérez Jiménez in Venezuela. Even though Chávez himself has expressed his sympathy for the former dictator, and he even invited Pérez Jiménez to his inauguration in 1999, today Chávez's supporters and the Government itself changed the concept of the celebration. On Wednesday, they shouted a slogan: "The people will not be betrayed again," and argued that the Venezuelan people was betrayed after Pérez Jiménez was overthrown and the Punto Fijo Treaty was signed by the then political parties. At the rally held in Caracas this January 23, Chávez's supporters wished him a quick recovery. Indeed, this was a commemoration with different meanings, depending on each political sector
