A 1980s Style "Repudiation Rally" Replayed in 2009 Against My Husband [VIDEOS]

Posted: Updated:

The images of what happened yesterday, in G Street, with my husband, Reinaldo Escobar, and other friends are, to me, too reminiscent of repudiation rallies of 1980. Look for yourself and tell me if it doesn't seem the same.

Note: The first video is of the 'spontaneous demonstration' against the bloggers

Note: This second video shows Reinaldo Escobar attacked by the crowd, before he is taken away by State Security agents. Reinaldo is in a grey shirt, with dark curly hair. Some of the people clinging tightly to him are his friends, trying to protect him from the crowd.
