A woman wears a gag as journalists and workers of Venezuelan media, demonstrate in support of 32 radios and two TV channels closed by the Government a year ago, in front of the private radio network Belfort National Circuit (CNB) in Caracas on August 1, 2010. At the time, President Hugo Chavez said the broadcasters were taken off the air due to the stations’ failures to meet legal operating requirements, but communication workers insist it was another move to control the country’s media.
