The video’s in Spanish, but they’re burning an effigy of Marcel Granier, the RCTV director. RCTV is the oldest TV network in Venezuela, which is the only TV station not controlled by the government. The station is scheduled to close next month.

This video is quite self explanatory, there is only one little section worth translating. At 12 seconds the TV broadcaster says the following: … they burned the image of Marcel Granier, director of RCTV, for his participation in the coup of April 2002….. Now, this is very grave because to begin with we are on the eve of April 2002 commemorations and also because there is no trial, no official and legal investigation on Granier for his 2002 role. This small legality does not stop the state TV in declaring him fully guilty, fully deserving of him being burning yesterday, and more soon. In a normal country Granier could sue easily a network doing such a lynching.
