Capriles: "We will remove the R and change it to evolution"
Opposition candidate Capriles has made an appeal to choose between stagnation or progress
After listening to the remarks of six community spokespersons on their main issues, Capriles highlighted some of his key programs for employment generation, education, public health and personal security.
"Those who think otherwise," referring to Chávez's supporters, "I do not regard you as enemies." However, Capriles alerted them, "be prepared, brother, because we are considering to remove the 'R' from the revolution you say you support and change it to evolution! (...) evolution means to solve the problems," Capriles remarked.
"You have to make a decision: either you are satisfied with what you have or you aspire to something better; either you want to be stuck or much better, to have a future with progress."
They are marching in step to the same tune. There is a coordinated effort to position the idea. The Twitter hashtag #YoSoyVictimaDeLaGuarimba (I'm a victim of "guarimbas", or protest barricades) can be read on all pro-government Twitter accounts, including those of the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), the National Assembly's Press Office, the state-run food distribution network PDVAL, state airline Conviasa, the Venezuelan embassies in foreign countries, radio stations and the huge media network responsive to the Government's interests and messages.
