Images forge reality, granting a power to television and video and even still photographs that can burrow deep into people’s consciousness without them even knowing it. With a wide variety of sources and people on the ground to talk to, I thought I was immune to the repetitious portrayals of Venezuela as a failed state in the throes of a popular rebellion. But even I was not prepared for what I saw in Caracas: how little of daily life appeared to be affected by the protests, the normality that prevailed in the vast majority of the city. I, too, had been taken in by media imagery.

Now that would be some movie; the story of a man of the people who rises against all odds to become the political Elvis of Latin America. Bigger than Elvis, actually; a president who won 13 out of 14 national democratic elections. No chance you will ever see such a movie winning an Oscar – much less produced in Hollywood. Unless, of course, Oliver Stone convinces HBO about a cable/DVD special.

Viva el Comandante !

Ils ont prié. Ils ont espéré. Ils ont menacé. Ils ont menti. Ils ont diffamé. Ils ont trituré le trait à outrance. Ils ont truandé la vérité au profit de l’immoralité qui leur sied à merveille. Ils ont accusé. Ils l’ont traité de tous les noms d’oiseaux. Mais,  Hugo Chavez a été réélu avec brio, force et conviction d’un peuple qui s’est levé comme un seul homme pour dire oui à son Comandante. Le président socialiste du Venezuela  Hugo Chavez, avait voté dans une école, Manuel Fajardo Palacio, dans le quartier populaire situé dans l’ouest de Caracas, où il avait été accueilli par une foule en délire.

16th July, 2012

While the Western system, under the influence of the war lobbies, is based on financial parasitism and unbridled predation, Venezuela and Russia are building an alternative model. The multipolar world is one of balanced partnerships and win-win agreements. But as pointed out by Olivia Kroth, the Libyan tragedy should serve as a lesson: the emergence of an alternative to imperial capitalism must go hand in hand with a strong defense capability.

Under President Chávez, Venezuela is enjoying good relations with Russia as one of its most important trade and military partners in Latin America. By strengthening the Venezuelan-Russian ties, Hugo Chávez wants to help creating a multi-polar world, “a world that permits the rights of peoples to liberty, self-determination and sovereignty”.
