Sounds of Washington; Latinos on the street

Detail of pro-Venezuela demonstrators, 20 May 2006

There seems to be some pro-Venezuela street demonstration down Fourteenth Street NW, even as I type. A woman with a bullhorn is crying out slogans about sovereignty and socialismo. I’ve seen one or two similar marches in the last couple of years.

US out of Cuba!
US out of Bolivia!
US out of Haiti!

Oh dear, it has devolved to a “hey, hey, ho, ho” situation.
