A complaint will be filed with domestic and foreign organizations
for "the crime committed by the current government, under
the aegis of President Hugo Chávez, where there is forced
political participation and indoctrination, abusing of the
rights of free thinking and protection of identity of Venezuelan
children," Antonio Ledezma, the head of opposition Alianza
Bravo Pueblo, said.
The complaint will be made with the Attorney General Office to attest to "all such irregularities," and to the Venezuelan Chapter of the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (Unicef.)
He regretted that the Attorney General Office fails to protect Venezuelan children. Last Sunday, during the TV and radio show "Aló Presidente," a girl "appeared to praise, extol the personality of the current President of the Republic," the official claimed.
According to Ledezma, this is evidence of indoctrination advanced by the Government, "and it is also a sample of what they want to do in the schools with those projects that the Government intends to approve in the so-called National Assembly."
INTERVIEW "I was a kid from the Third World who came to teach Italians how to play opera." A succinct Diego Matheuz describes in this way his arrival at La Fenice of Venice, first as a guest conductor and later on as chief conductor. Matheuz is extremely modest, considering that a 26-year-old young man from a faraway tropical country stepped up to one of the most renowned opera theaters in Italy. "It was a big challenge; I gave it all. Thank God, we overcame," he adds when commenting his debut in October 2010 with Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi. Four years later, and being still under 30, Diego seems to have fulfilled the highest expectations. He has led at least 15 major world orchestras; has appeared on various stages, and, together with Gustavo Dudamel, Christian Vásquez and Rafael Payare –the four mighty globetrotters of the System- is tied to the project pioneered by Master José Antonio Abreu 40 years ago.
