Venezuela's Political Disaster - November 7, 2007

Dear Journalists,

Students are marching today in Caracas protesting Chavez's proposed authoritarian rules to the Constitution:

The students have been protesting in Venezuela for the last several days. Please read previous postings on my blog. I will be updating the blog as needed.

There is a new character protesting against Chavez and is actively speaking out, but who has skeptics worried:

"Three months and 18 days after he stopped being the Minister of Defense and retired, and following some "reflection," Monday retired General in Chief Raúl Isaías Baduel felt "the moral obligation and duty" to warn Venezuelans against the "dreadful backlash" the proposed changes to the Constitution involve, adding that approval of the reform would amount to a "coup d'etat."

Venezuelans need help from international organizations to restore democracy!
