An unsung Venezuelan hero gets his due, in documentary form

Video in Spanish.

“A Coup and a Letter” tells the story of Juan Rodríguez, a soldier of the Venezuelan army, who carried a hand-written message from his president to the people. When Juan realized that Chavecito hadn’t resigned, that he was being held prisoner against his will and that of the people, he knew he had to act. Until now, he has remained a largely unsung hero in the rescue of democracy that took place on this day in 2002. No longer.
