Status Of Former Viasa HQ's In Caracas

Fri Jun 15, 2007 11:42 pm

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,
