Chavezism internationalizes electioneering
"Foreign events on behalf of Chávez project the government advantageous position"
Tuesday, July 24, the 229th anniversary of the birth of Liberator Simón Bolívar, will be helpful as well to praise Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez and his Bolivarian revolution.
In more than 100 cities around the world the "Day of world solidarity with the Bolivarian revolution and Commander Chávez" will be celebrated simultaneously. The initiative emerged from the meeting of the Sao Paulo Forum held in Caracas last month. "From Bolívar to Chávez" is the name of a documentary film that will be aired in rallies, such as the one in Ottawa, Canada.
Some of these meetings feature pro-government deputies of the Venezuelan National Assembly (AN). Diplomatic staff accredited to Venezuelan embassies throughout the world will also take part in the events.
Over 20 red deputies of the Parlatino and the AN headed for foreign countries in the Americas and Europe to act as key speakers in the celebrations and prove, as declared by parliamentarian Rodrigo Cabezas to official media, that "the revolution is not alone."
The call has been made from the website www.unidos convenezuela.com, which displays the pamphlets in every event planned for Tuesday. The motto is "Your victory will be our victory," in reference to a notice forwarded by former Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula Da Silva to his Venezuelan counterpart during the rendezvous of leftist organizations in Caracas.

José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
