This week I had the opportunity to walk by Viasa Tower in Downtown Caracas. To my surprise I saw it "taken" by pro-chavez supporters which have been living in Viasa's offices for more than a year now.

Since the building lacks running water or electricity, people throw their feces and urine from the windows. A woman from a nearby residential building told me that crime has risen in the area and that streets are filled with disgusting odors and feces.

Here's a pic I took with my phone:

Slogan says:
"Fatherland, Socialism or Death! Supporting our comandante Chavez, we demand decent housing"

Very sad ending for this building which used to be full of flight attendants and pilots.

Saludos desde Caracas,
Luis
