Venezuela Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

Apr 09, 2002

This Public Announcement is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to possible demonstrations and disruption of public services due to a general strike called for April 9 and likely continuing afterward. This Public Announcement expires on July 9, 2002.

The Department informs U.S. citizens traveling and residing in Venezuela that the largest workers' union (CTV), some employees of the state oil company, PDVSA, and other groups have announced a general strike for Tuesday, April 9. It is possible that the strike will extend for a number of days. The strike may affect public transportation within the city and to and from the international airport. Demonstrations, and potentially violent confrontations between rival demonstrators, are possible in connection with the general strike.

There may be other demonstrations and political events scheduled throughout the next several weeks. The Department reminds all U.S. citizens that they should carefully monitor news broadcasts and avoid large crowds, demonstrations and areas where such events are likely to occur.

For further information concerning travel to Venezuela, travelers should consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Venezuela at http://travel.state.gov/venezuela.html. Travelers may call the US Embassy Venezuela at 58-212-975-6411 for further information.
