A: They're continuing right now to organize dialogue on both sides and even doing imaginative things, like street theatre, where you know, they'll put down a table and two chairs and they'll invite passersby to take a chair and engage in dialogue.

Q: Really?

A: Oh yeah.

Q: That's fascinating.

A: Or ballet. I saw a West Side Story sort of ballet where they took the Chavistas and Anti-Chavistas in one of the main plazas

Q: And this all came from them?

A: This all came from them. I'm saying the third side comes from them. It has nothing to do with me - it comes from them. And things like, they had a big dance - like 2,000 young people on the third side.
