Old and young, mothers (with babies) and paperboard on the floor, evidence that someone got there the night before.

At the Plaza Bolívar, a small group waited on chairs, heckled by the National Guard.

“You can’t be here, ma’am, move along” a soldier said to me.

“I’m sorry, but what’s this line is for?”

“The Carnet de la Patria.”
