    anybody seen this docu?
    saw it tonight at this little "cafe"(an empty basement),
    pretty tasty shit..the filmmakers originally went to
    make a documentary on chavez, and ended up being
    in the middle of a coup d'etat(the first of 2 or 3 now, i think)
    that made big phony headlines back in 2002....
    the usurper, pedro carmona, immediately
    nullified all of chavez's policies, dissolved the congress,
    canceled the constitution, and on private television, which
    dominates venezuelan airwaves(and subsequently reflects
    the interests of the wealthy elite), proclaimed that the
    majority of venezuelans supported the coup(while
    hundreds of thousands of chavez supporters, predominantly
    dirt poor, rallied outside the presidential palace).
    i leave the rest up to you to see/read about..go see it if you
    get a chance.

    Shit you can't be serious.... They are really going after Venezuala??

    This is so predictable.... I knew they had been having problems with them protesting and all the attempted coups and what not. Their oil/state system.... I cannot beleive this.

    just recently the anti-chavez opposition, advised by external
    allies(cough-US-cough), openly announced their plans to NOT
    recognize the verdict of the national electoral council. so, they
    are going so far as to threaten the 'institutional life' of the
    country if they do not get the telos of their referendum, which
    of course aims to remove chavez from power and reinstate
    the hierarchy of power to the minority elite. ultimately i think
    the opposition, knowing full well chavez has way too much support
    to get him removed, is trying to create a chaotic situation worse than
    any venezuela has seen to justify foreign(cough-US-cough)
    intervention. how fun.
    i bet we're gonna see some major shit going down soon.
