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."
