The film unearths the real story behind the attempted overthrow of Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez in 2002 and how the people of the barrios of Caracas rose up to force his return to power.
The whole world knew that on the 11 of April, 2002, in Venezuela, there occurred a massacre. The whole world condemned the deaths of so many humans. Several people that were filmed shooting from a bridge in Caracas were shown as the culprits of the massacre that caused 19 fatal deaths. This information went around the world. But together with the deaths and injuries from that day, there was another victim: The truth. This documentary shows images, testimony, and key historical facts hidden by many mainstream media about the massacre at Llaguno Bridge.

  • However, a ruling from London's high court on Thursday (July 2) said that Juan Guaidó is the “constitutional interim President of Venezuela”, thereby blocking the request of the Maduro controlled BVC (Venezuela's central bank).
Despite its support for Guaidó, the United Kingdom continues to have diplomatic ties with Maduro’s government. Maduro’s ambassador, Rocío Maneiro, is recognized by the British government and has control of the Venezuelan Embassy in London, while British Ambassador Andrew Soper remains in Caracas. At the same time, the British have not granted diplomatic credentials to the envoy Guaidó has named ambassador to the United Kingdom.
Monday’s decision by Lord Justices Lewison, Males and Phillips called on the UK government to clarify its “recognition” of Guaido.
It will be necessary to determine whether:
(1) HMG [Her Majesty’s government] recognises Mr Guaido as President of Venezuela for all purposes and therefore does not recognise Mr Maduro as President for any purpose; or
(2) HMG recognises Mr Guaido as entitled to be the President of Venezuela and thus entitled to exercise all the powers of the President but also recognises Mr Maduro as the person who does in fact exercise some or all of the powers of the President of Venezuela.
In a press release, the Supreme Court said British courts were bound to accept that the British government does not recognise Maduro as Venezuela's president "for any purpose". However, the court said it remained necessary to consider whether to recognise judgments by Venezuela's Supreme Court ruling that Guaido's transition statute was null and void, and it asked the English commercial Court to do so.
