Updated: Venezuela's Political Disaster - November 29, 2008

Dear Journalists,

There are a lot of reported abuses taking place in Venezuela allegedly by Chavez's supporters, including financed protests against the newly elected officials. The protesters are all wearing red. The only way they all could wear red is if the t-shirts and other displays are paid for and provided by Chavez's administration.

The following are links reporting the abuses of political retaliation:

Members of the Russian Delegation visiting Chavez to perform naval exercises staying at one of the five stars hotels in Caracas were robbed as reported in the link below:
