Videoclip que reconstruye la historia del Golpe de Estado del 11 de abril y la Rebelión Popular del 13 de abril de 2002 en Venezuela.

Millones de personas de las zonas populares se unieron a los militares leales y consiguieron revertir la dictadura más breve de la historia. A diez años de esa gesta presentamos este video con objeto de mantener la memoria viva.
