Global Protest Against Hugo Chavez


Dear Journalists,

Venezuela opposition against Hugo Chavez’s abuse of power has scheduled a protest in several cities around the world to take place on Sunday, January 23.

Movie star Maria Conchita Alonso was interviewed by CNN in Spanish, and is inviting everyone to please join Venezuelans in this protest:

Global Protest Stop Dictatorship


As expected, Hugo Chavez seems to be pathologically lying playing with Venezuelans’ hope for democracy. After the abusive seven hour long speech to the nation last week Chavez is already recalling his promise to remove the block against the new legislators:

Chavez says he won't give up decree powers

Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat had already predicted Chavez’s behavior in his article:

Lucifer con piel de cordero

‘El Presidente tiene una fachada democrática y pretende establecer un sistema totalitario’

Some environmentalists are calling Chavez’s economy as criminal human rights abuses reacting to the following article from UPI:

Venezuela faces uncertainty over oil find

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

“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” Dr. Martin Luther King

Dear Journalists,

It seems that recently Hugo Chavez is on a conciliatory mood shaking hands with world leaders, and with opposition leaders including Maria Corina Machado. Just a few weeks ago, Chavez was insulting Maria Corina Machado stereotyping her with what he may believe are wrong qualities. (Please see article in the resources below).

I found interesting that while Hugo Chavez was greeting members of the National Assembly there was a cheerleading group yelling “that’s the way to govern ….” Sadly, those cheering may be unable to see the reality in which Venezuelans live under Hugo Chavez’s regime, or may have been paid to cheer.

The following link is circulating the Internet presenting list of items that Chavez failed to mention during the 2010 review speech to the National Assembly.

Chavez foes wary over calls for reconciliation

Response to Hugo Chavez's seven hour speech to the nation by one concerned citizen:

The term stochastic terrorism brought up with the January 8, 2011 tragedy in Arizona is defined as the use of mass communications to stir up random lone wolves ... So, has Hugo Chavez being purposely creating supporters in Venezuela fed by hatred against the developed world? That is, since 1998 every week Chavez has been seizing the nation’s networks with a wild monologue at times full of hatred and name calling against individuals.

Hopefully, with his new conciliatory mood, Hugo Chavez should restore hope in Venezuela, and control violence, and other abuses against citizens as listed previously. Chavez should do as the Law of Reciprocity’s Golden rule states "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat criticized in his column the Organization of American States’ negligence to assist Venezuela to restore democracy.

Ya don José Miguel habló

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

Hugo Chavez salary is …

Journalist Fareed Zakaria in his GPS program on CNN commented about the salaries of several world leaders following report that Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. "In an effort to prove his government's transparency, Netanyahu says he wanted to show the world just how much he gets paid. The answer -- just under $150,000 a year. And Mr. Netanyahu reportedly has to pay his own cell phone bills and newspaper subscriptions.”

Fareed Zakaria explained further stating “According to the "Economist," other world leader salaries range from a high of $2.2 million a year for Singapore to just over $4,000 a year in India.” So, since this is a good time to settle all bad sentiments, Hugo Chavez should explain to Venezuelans his salary since he took office.

Did you know that Venezuelans do not get tax refunds? With the huge amounts of money that Venezuela gets from oil revenue Chavez should get the nation out of the third or fifth world quality of life. It is a matter of fact that after Chavez took office his own standard of living and those of his loved ones improved by an outrageous amount. So, why in the world does Chavez continue to lower the standard of living to Venezuelan citizens?
