On July 5th, 1811 the Independence of Venezuela was declared by an autonomist movement of the Caracas Council, which ended the nexus with the Kingdom of Spain. According to testimonies of that time, after the proclamation there was a spontaneous manifestation, led by Francisco de Miranda, along with members of the Patriotic Society and the people, and walked the city's streets fluttering flags and shouting Liberty celebrations.
