Preaparation for The Summit of the America's - April 16, 2009

Dear Journalists,

There is a lot of information coming out of Venezuela related to the Summit of the Americas taking place in Trinidad in Tobago, and the arrival of U.S. President Barack Obama in Port of Spain. As you may know, President Obama is open to conversations with all of the leaders as equals including the infamous Hugo Chavez who in no way nor form could be compared to Obama.

Le Monde in Paris has already reported that infamous Chavez will oppose the accords. Earlier Chavez announced that he will veto the accords. However, specialists in international law have immediately informed the press and bloggers that Chavez is misinformed and can not veto the accords.

Chavez annonce qu'il s'opposera à la déclaration finale du sommet
Avant même le coup d'envoi du sommet des Amériques, Hugo Chavez a annoncé la couleur : "Cette déclaration, le Venezuela met son veto dès maintenant. Nous disons, avec d'autres pays, que nous ne sommes pas d'accord avec ce texte (...) Nous n'avons pas de grandes espérances pour ce sommet", a lancé le président vénézuélien, depuis la localité amazonienne de Cumana, où il reçoit plusieurs de ses alliés de la gauche latino-américaine. L'éternel opposant à Washington reproche au texte de ne pas dénoncer l'exclusion de Cuba du sommet ainsi que l'embargo des Etats-Unis imposé depuis 1962 à l'île communiste. (avec AFP)

Pathetic Chavez reminds of the students who would not go to class because they know it all already.

The Society of Interamerican Press (Sociedad Interamericana de Prensa (SIP) lead by Enrique Santos Calderon from El Tiempo in Colombia issued a press release requesting that the Summit discusses freedom of speech in Latin America:

Blogger Daniel Duquenal wrote on his blog about Chavez new chosen leader to take over democratically elected Mayor Antonio Ledezma's duties: (Isn't this illegal?)
