-The February 27, 1989 popular uprising known as “El Caracazo” (big Caracas explosion) against neo-liberalism and privatization — against imperialsim and capitalism.  The Venezuelan government response was vicious repression — 3,000 people were killed.  The uprising is viewed as the beginning of the Bolivarian Revolution.
