Editor's note: You can watch an extended version of the audio message sent to CNN by Lopez here.

CNN's Amanpour approached Venezuelan opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez for an interview. He was not able to break cover to speak with Hala Gorani, sitting in for Christiane Amanpour, but he did send an exclusive audio response to our questions.

CNN reached out to offer the Venezuelan government a place on the program; they chose not to appear.

      Clearly you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Good for you that you don't live there, consider yourself very very lucky.
