It is Hugo Chavez’s responsibility

Revised and updated

Dear Journalists,

There is controversy in the Venezuela’s Supreme Court allowing Leopoldo Lopez to be a presidential candidate. It stated that the verdict of the Inter-American Court of Human Rights (IACHR Court) in favor of the political leader is not enforceable.

It seems that everyday Hugo Chavez cares more for Cuba and less for Venezuelans while the abused nation is in need of leadership, and civility.

On October 16, 2011 Maria Corina Machado, opposition member of Venezuela’s National Assembly, was assaulted by Chavez’s supporters in Turmero while campaigning. She was injured in the head and there are reports that an abrasive substance was thrown. Maria Corina Machado reported on Facebook that she was injured. However. she continued her campaign visit.

The following is picture published in showing motorcyclists in Venezuela blocking all traffic during the rain:

It is Hugo Chavez’s responsibility as President of Venezuela to protect citizens and ensure their wellbeing under peace and civility.

Harvard Internationalist Pedro Mario Burelli commented on an article published in M Semanal, Mexico concerning Hugo Chavez’s illness:

Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat commented in his column about the large group of Hugo Chavez’s staff who attended the Human Rights convention in Geneva, Switzerland to discuss the situation in Venezuela.

Venezuelans need help from world leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
