24 years ago, the most powerful photos of the Caracazo, by Francisco Solórzano


On 27 February 1989  protests began in Caracas against the neoliberalism of then president Carlos Andres Perez. There were also some violent protests in other cities of the country. By the next day the government declared a curfew, then militarised the streets and police were responding with unprecedented violence. Estimates of numbers killed range from 276 (the government figures at the time) to 3000. Thousands were also injured.

The following photos were taken by photographer Francisco “Frasso” Solórzano, and were collated by Noticias 24 and AVN.
