Students' protests in Venezuela

Protests from pro and against Chavez, destruction by Chavez's thugs, and Chavez's threats dominated the news in Venezuela during the week. Chavez threatened students that he will use "the good tear gas" against them while his thugs destroyed government properties such as the new Mayor's building as shown in the attached links below:
