CHAVISTA LEADER ASSASSINATED


THE RIGHWING IS COMMITTING ACTS OF TERRORISM IN VENEZUELA AND THE ONLY THING THAT WASHINGTON AND THE CORPORATE MEDIA TALK ABOUT IS VIOLATION OF “HUMAN RIGHTS.” The charismatic youth leader and national deputy Robert Serra was assassinated yesterday in his home along with his partner María Herrera. Serra may have been the first on the 20-person hit list that Venezuelan student activist Lorent Gómez Saleh (now in jail) referred to in a recorded conversation that Interior Minister Miguel Rodriguez Torres revealed about a week ago. In the conversation Gómez Saleh makes reference to sophisticated Remington arms for sharpshooters with a list of twenty targets and indicates that he is in close contact with Alvaro Uribe. The situation resembles the prelude to the overthrow of Salvador Allende. After right wingers assassinated General René Schneider the Chilean opposition led by the Christian Democratic Party, rather than distancing themselves from violent actions, organized protests that gave legitimacy to the fascists. The Venezuelan opposition acts in a similar manner. But what is really outrageous is how the White House and U.S. Congress highlight alleged violation of human rights in Venezuela when they know full well that the type of terrorism carried out in that nation would never be tolerated in the U.S. Anybody remember the FBI-led repression against the Black Panthers in the 60s?

I know that the US government has spent many years sabotaging democratically elected governments in various regions of Latin America. Who does it think is committing human rights abuses in Venezuela? The socialist political parties?
