Updated: Venezuela's Political Disaster - November 19, 2008

Dear Journalists,

Venezuelans are preparing to vote on November 23. This may be a routine act for those of us living in democracies, but Venezuelans are facing a very hostile situation where they fear that their vote would be cheated out by Chavez. As has happened in the past, Chavez's alleged own e-voting company Smartmatic is the one processing the votes. Further, the military handles the ballots, and Chavez has threatened to take out the military artillery with tanks and all sorts of gadgets if the opposition candidates were to win the municipal elections. Below please find some of the videos shown in Chavez's government television station which may intimidate voters to vote for the opposition:

The following is link to article written by Amb. Adolfo Taylhardat explaining what will happen when the opposition wins:

Lo que estará en juego el 23N

Venezuelans need help from developed governments and international organizations to restore democracy and end corruption.
