Emyly Vera, a spokesperson of the group of university students who demonstrated near the Cuban Embassy to Caracas for five days, announced the end of the protest after the Venezuelan Government reported on the return of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez to his country.

"We asked for his return. We said that if he was able to rule, he had to do it in his own country and not abroad," she added. Vera pointed out that although the demonstration is over, "the battle is not."

She reassured Venezuelans that the student movement would continue rallying, "we are deeply committed to the Venezuelan people (...) they (government officials) will not keep our mouths shut," she stated.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
