[Xmca-l] Re: Watch "Venezuelan Protests: Another Attempt By U.S.-Backed Right-Wing Groups To Oust Elected Government?" on YouTube



Allende 1973 is not Maduro 2014. They are very different leaders and their commitment to democracy is substantially different. Certainly there are extreme right members in the Venezuelan opposition as well. But it is Maduro the one taking the military into the streets of Tachira, censuring the media, cutting internet access to a full city among many other measures that qualify as not properly democratic.  And I haven't mentioned the actions of the government paramilitary yet. There is many people in South America that are not "imperialist" but former opposition to Pinochet and other dictatorships denouncing Venezuela's government. I am not going to elaborate further because it is off topic for most members of this list.  Please  go directly to the websites of Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch and see what they are reporting Thanks. David

Very similar things were done to Allende's government in Chile and to Mossadegh's nationalist government in Iran in 1953, where operatives in the US embassy paid armed street gangs to rampage and incite violence.
