"We had just achieved consensus with that opposition, but everything changed in the second semester of that year 2001 and they turned into an extremist speech until they reached the strike in December of that year 2001, where they already asked for the resignation of Commander Chávez," he explained. .
In this sense, he drew attention to the fate of the protagonists of this coup. "Where are the protagonists of April 11? Where are they? What do they do? They were forgotten, abandoned and ruined, "he said.
