Venezuela's Political Disaster - May 17, 2009

Dear Journalists,

Free Aung San Suu Kyi

Chavez insults everyone with no thought of how it will affect those who he verbally attacks on a regular basis. At the same time, Chavez can not stand anyone's freedom of speech especially from those who disagree about his behavior and abuses against human rights. Thus, Chavez has ordered the closing of Globovision television network. One of Chavez's recent complaints is that Globovision reported on May 4 that there had been a 5.4 earthquake, and citizens were awaken in the middle of the night. As I understand from Journalism 101, journalists have the duty to report and inform the public. As a blogger, I was notified immediately after the earthquake of April 5, and May 4 when loved ones told me that they were scared, and had to leave their houses for safety.

A group of Venezuelan journalists reacted to Brazil's acceptance of Venezuela to Mercosur by questioning the Foreign Minister of Brazil, Ambassador Celso Amorim about Venezuela's eligibility to join Mercosur under Chavez's leadership. The journalists ask questions considering several facts as can a nation who eliminates private property join Mercusur?

¿Puede ingresar a Mercosur un Gobierno que elimina la propiedad privada y estatiza la economía?
