Venezuela's Vice President Nicolas Maduro holds up a letter that, he said, was sent by Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez to his supporters during a demonstration commemorating the anniversary of a failed coup attempt led by Chavez in 1992, in Caracas, Venezuela, Monday, Feb. 4, 2013. The president was absent for the first time from the annual demonstrations as crowds gathered for multiple marches wearing the red T-shirts of his socialist movement. Chavez remained in Cuba, where he has been out of sight and hasn't spoken publicly since he underwent cancer surgery on Dec. 11. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
