There are marches scheduled for September 5 in Caracas to protest Chavez's abuse of power. The protests will be peaceful, and journalists are urged to cover the events. Chavez, as usual, may send police with riot gear, and the infamous tear gas against unarmed civilians.

Venezuelans need help to restore democracy, and stop Chavez's human rights abuses.
