With reference to corruption accusations issued by official party deputies against legislators of the opposition coalition in the Congress's session held on February 5, attorney at law and university Professor Rogelio Pérez Perdomo stated that the Venezuelan Government "relies on scandals" as a means to undermine the opposition and "reinforce its hegemonic character."

"The Government, which exerts control over means of communication and the branches of government, and raises issues to cause concern among the population, has been very skillful to control scandals arising from actions carried out by its own officials (...) It has also been quite clever to destroy the opposition, for instance, by denouncing donations to parties (opposition) by enterprises," he explained.

The university professor remarked that "said situation in nothing but a political struggle to carry out Chavezism transition without any obstacles whatsoever and to strengthen the hegemonic power of the Venezuelan Government. This is not going to be investigated as much as it should. It is just part of a scandal to conceal President Hugo Chávez's health situation. It has been 60 days since he left (for Cuba) and, in the meantime, the economic situation harms the country."

Pérez Perdomo said that difficult times will come for the opposition. "They are very weak. All institutions are under the control of the Government. 

Referring to the corruption scandal against the opposition deputies, Pérez Perdomo expressed that the opposition is being cornered. Power is in the hands of the Government.

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
