Venezuela's Political Disaster - 4th of July!

Dear Journalists,

Happy 4th of July!

The Washington Post published editorial "Mr. Chávez's Friends" The Venezuelan president bonds with regimes that the rest of the world -- and his own compatriots -- shun.

Please know that Venezuelan opposition believes that Chavez does not represent their views at all, and do not accept Chavez's actions.

There are several reports from Copa América 2007 soccer tournament including that Chavez has hoarded tickets for his supporters, and is using the stadium for his own propaganda as reported El Universal:

and by Daniel Duquenal in his blog:

There are also reports that the voices of people protesting against Chavez's abusive regime, are blocked out from the sound coming from the stadiums as reported in the following videos. Please know that people are heard chanting "Chavez will leave" and his regime will fall (si va a caer, si va a caer, este gobierno va a caer".

The next video is to students' violent protest in Maracaibo, Zulia, but there are reports that the Modis Operandi is different, and there is a possibility that the violence could be organized by Chavez himself using professional rioters:
