Coup Plot in Venezuela Thwarted

A coup plot against the Venezuelan government has been foiled, with both civilians and members of the military detained, President Nicolas Maduro revealed Thursday in a televised address.

Those involved were being paid in U.S. dollars, and one of the suspects had been granted a visa to enter the United States should the plot fail, Maduro said.

Venezuela’s president stated that the coup plotters already had a “transitional” government and program lined up once the plan, which included bombings on the Miraflores Palace and the teleSUR offices in Caracas, as well as assassinations of members of the opposition, Maduro and others, was carried out.

Maduro explained that a video of masked military officials speaking out against the government had been recorded, which was set to be released after the planned assassination was carried out.

Venezuelan Minister of Defense Vladimir Padrino Lopez stated via his Twitter account that the armed forces remain loyal to the constitutional government.

Palabras de Robex Mc (Muy sabia la pequeña revolucionaria) @RODBEXA

Quiero hablarle a los panas que me siguen y escriben a diario, primero les agradezco inmensamente el apoyo, sus mensajes, sus bendiciones, y hasta sus críticas constructivas, claroooo, nunca faltan los disociados que critican por criticar, maldicen y no aportan nada, a esos también les agradezco de una u otra forma, me hacen ser fuerte, y saber que pase lo que pase no debo doblegar ni callar jamás mis ideales. “Échala, tu palabra contra quien sea” como decía Alí.

Ahora bien, es cierto que no sigo a todos, de hecho twitter no se trata solo de tener seguidores por tenerlos, si fuera así deberíamos exigirle a TODOS, sin excepción que nos sigan, pero no se maneja de esa forma. Esto lo comento, porque aunque no sigo a todos, a la mayoría les respondo sus menciones, (tanto así que a veces se molestan conmigo porque les lleno su TL con puras respuestas mías), les respondo, como no todos los “artistas” suelen hacerlo, y siempre y cuando este dentro de mis posibilidades ya que no vivo metida en una computadora, hago otras cosas.

Sabemos que la guerra de 4ta generación es mediática, a través de la televisión, las redes sociales, la radio, la publicidad, y hay que dar la batalla en todos los escenarios, siii, en TODOS LOS ESCENARIOS! No sólo en twitter, ésta es sólo una herramienta de miles que hay para hacer llegar el mensaje. 

Por lo tanto, no acepto que me juzguen por no colocar una etiqueta a veces, por no seguirlos a todos, por no colocar #tropa en todos mis tweet y tildarme de “indisciplinada”… No lo acepto, porque yo doy la batalla, no me escondo, digo a todo pulmón que soy revolucionaria, Chavista y que creo en la continuidad del proceso y por lo tanto le doy mi respaldo a Maduro. Yo soy Tropa, pero no lo soy por colocar una etiqueta, NO, lo soy porque defiendo mis ideales revolucionarios a capa y espada, donde sea y delante de quien sea. Que no se quede sólo en una etiqueta para aumentar nuestros seguidores, que haya compromiso, que la acción acompañe la palabra y que de la misma forma cuando digamos YO SOY CHÁVEZ lo hagamos con compromiso y lealtad.

Ser tropa es ser fiel a tus convicciones, Una vez me tocó montarme en una tarima, y a pesar de que la tarima la estaba colocando la revolución y nadie estaba pagando nada, había alrededor de 30 personas disociadas a tal punto de gritarme “maldita chavista, bájate, por qué no te moriste el día en que naciste”, algo que iba más allá de un gusto musical, es odio y resentimiento por los ideales que tengo, y ahí es donde yo doy la batalla, es fuerte, pero es necesario porque el mensaje debe llegar a todos, y es algo que no todos hacen, y por eso los voy a señalar y juzgar? NO, cada quien da la batalla donde mejor se sepa defender. Hace poco me decían “cómo te vas a meter para la boca del lobo” y yo les respondía hasta para la boca del lobo hay que ir a dejar el mensaje con nuestro canto, los que no somos violentos, los que apostamos a la paz, creemos en que el mensaje debe llegar a todos, creemos que debe haber debate, un debate serio, con ideas y mucha responsabilidad.

Capriles fascista, si, apoyo totalmente eso, y digo el por qué, voy contra las cúpulas nunca contra el mismo pueblo, y señalo a la cúpulas, y si te metes conmigo de manera agresiva y fascista te responderé, pero no voy por ahí insultando a cuanto opositor me encuentro por el camino simplemente por el hecho de ser opositor, al fin y al cabo no podemos señalar ni juzgar, debemos tratar de sumar, de hacer ver por qué luchamos, porque nosotros los revolucionarios SÍ SABEMOS por qué luchamos, y también sabemos que ahorita tenemos unos cuantos que se sumaron a las filas de la revolución pero que hace un tiempo atrás no se habían dado cuenta de la gran labor que hizo Chávez junto con su pueblo para construir una mejor patria, y sí que tuvimos tiempo para demostrárselo y aun así, no lo entendieron en ese momento, pero nosotros no los juzgamos, no verdad?, los recibimos cierto?? Entonces así mismo vamos a trabajar para construir, aportar y sumar a esas personas que son revolucionarias como nosotros, que se sienten identificadas con esa “sangre roja y corazón a la izquierda” pero que por una u otra razón están desmotivadas.

Vuelvo y repito, no todo el que se pone una camisa roja es revolucionario, ni todo el que hace una crítica es contrarrevolucionario. Que Dios nos bendiga…!! Rap para todo aquel, me siento orgullosa de que mi rap no lo escuchan solo los raperos!! YO SI ME SIENTO ORGULLOSA DE ESO. ABRAZOS INFINITOS!!

Venezuelan President Responds to Latest US Accusations

The Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro responded late Monday to the United States government declaring his country a “national security threat.”

Maduro rejected President Barack Obama’s measure and explained the executive order signed by the U.S. president coincided with a failed coup attempt in Venezuela last month, which had links to U.S. citizens.

“After we dismantled the coup attempt … the U.S. and President Barack Obama … decided to personally fulfill the task of ousting my government,” Maduro said.

The Venezuelan head of state said that, according to intelligence reports he had received recently, over the last nine days, “many meetings were held between the Department of State and the White House,” to discuss measures to be taken against his government.

Highlighting the hypocrisy of Obama’s executive order, Maduro called the statement “a Frankenstein, a monster,” as on the one hand it heavily criticizes Venezuela, and on the other it ends with Obama vowing to build a better relationship with the South American country.

Speaking from the Miraflores Palace, the president described the U.S. measure as the most aggressive step taken yet, largely inspired by Washington’s frustration and desperation.

Maduro further criticized Washington’s announcement by pointing out that the U.S. is a bigger threat to the world.

“You are the real threat, who trained and created Osama Bin Laden … you are the people who created al-Qaida,” said Maduro. Bin Laden was trained by the CIA during the late 1970s to fight the Soviet army in Afghanistan.

March 5, 2013: Death of Comrade Hugo Chavez, leader of Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution.

“Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías breathed his last breath one year ago today. He was only 59. The untimely death of this brilliant human being was a sad loss for humanity, and leaves a gap which is very difficult to fill. One has to guard against hero worship and the Hollywood-style individualised version of history, but there’s no denying that certain people - through their strength of purpose, their understanding, their determination, their heroism, their leadership skills, their creative brilliance, their charisma, their devotion to the people - play an outstanding role. 

"Hugo Chávez was such a person. He worked ceaselessly in pursuit of his vision: for a socialist Venezuela; for a united and sovereign Latin America; and for a fair, multipolar world order free from imperialist domination. His vision was infectious, and served to inspire people around the world. He breathed life into a global revolutionary process that had been little in evidence since the upswing of the 1970s (Mozambique, Angola, Chile (1970-73), Guinea Bissau, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe). In the intervening period we saw the decline and fall of the ‘Eastern Bloc’, the rise of neoliberal economics, the spread of 'structural adjustment’, the genocidal impact of HIV/AIDS, and a deep disillusionment among much of the left. The Bolivarian Revolution brought new hope. Who wouldn’t be inspired by the successes of a socialist-oriented programme that prioritised the needs of millions of ordinary people: the slum-dwellers, the workers, the peasants, the unemployed, the indigenous, the African, the disenfranchised - the type of people that politicians rarely thought about in this Washington-led 'new world order’.

"Furthermore, Chávez understood that countries do not exist in isolation and that the Bolivarian Revolution couldn’t survive alone in the face of the enemy to the north. Venezuela’s example and support has been decisive for the progressive governments in Ecuador, Bolivia, Nicaragua and Argentina. Chávez pursued the deepest of ties with socialist Cuba. He was a friend to the entire socialist and non-aligned world, from China to Zimbabwe, from South Africa to Belurus, from Iran to Brazil, from Syria to Vietnam. When it was deeply unfashionable to do so, he defended Libya and Syria from Nato-led regime change campaigns. In a world of cowardice and fickleness, he stood up and said: "I am not a coward, I am not fickle.”

“His work and his example will stay with us forever. Work like Chávez!”

What you won't see on CNN about the venezuelan "peaceful protests"
This post was submitted to FYML. The author wishes to remain anonymous due to harassment from the right-wing.

I am a venezuelan and I am tired of seeing CNN and other media lie about the attacks of the opposition to fit the narrative of peaceful students fighting against an opressive government when it’s so far from the truth.

While there’s many people in the opposition who would never take part in violence and want the protests to stop so that all venezuelans can find a democratic solution for our problems the most violent extremist have no qualms about silencing their own people or intimidate them.

I want to show you how many opposition protesters think and why the government calls them fascist

For the people who don’t understand spanish I will translate the tweets:

  • @__LeoDice:  I want a concentration camp, for chavistas :)
  • @metocaslaflauta: Feeling like killing chavistas :D
  • @A_ndreina: Dear God please take away this desire to kill chavistas… Amen
  • @Alxndr_e: Venezuela needs to start creating concentration camps to annihilate chavistas! Cont..
  • @AdriianaQ: @yireRamirezR I want to kill chavistas
  • @PeteerGarcia: @DaniiVeren Wanting to go out and kill chavistas
  • @TheStroks: @JailinOver let’s make a concentration camp for chavistas and kill them and that’s it.

That sounds horrible coming from “peaceful students” right? but there’s more

Again I’m translating:

  • @Eddnav: @NelsonBocaranda all chavistas are an embarrassment, we’ll have to build a concentration camp for them when this governement crumbles
  • @VerchkaCrespo: I hope one day it will be born a venezuelan Hitler to put all chavistas in a concentration camp
  • @HitlerCriollo: Venezuela needs a concentration camp for chavistas
  • @MariVasquezG: We should build a concentration camp, get all the chavistas “enchufados” (that’s an insult that opposition leaders call chavistas, it means corrupt or someone that’s only in the government for money) there and then burn them
  • @jesusalbertopl: When the usurper falls we’re gonna have to hunt down all those chavistas politicians re-open Guasina an old concentration camp and lock them up
  • @OrlandoWTF: I would love to be president and get all those chavistas in a concentration camp!
  • @cristoepueblo: fucking disgusting chavistas, someone still doubts that what they should suffer is an holocaust? We should lock them up in a camp and that’s it!

One of the first tweets is replying to @NelsonBocaranda, this guy is a journalist who has promoted violence against chavistas and encourages the opposition to share chavistas’ personal information on social media in what has been lately known as “Mision Sapo” this has resulted in many chavistas reporting threats and harrassment. For example:

The censored parts are personal information, above you can see the harrassment and how the opposition uses the Guy Fawkes symbol of anonymous to share personal information of a chavista resident of Las Palmas, a neighbourhood in Caracas.

  • @PALMAS_ANONIMO: @JessiMariMG you’ll never get out of your house again feeling safe… oops or maybe from your apartment ******
  • @PALMAS_ANONIMO: @JessiMariMGfor being a fucking bitch… apathetic.
  • @PALMAS_ANONIMO: @JessiMariMG good morning Jessica ****** Mena ******…. Welcome to your nightmare..

The harrassment is not only on twitter or facebook

“Chavistas from Morro you will never sleep peacefully again.” That was written in a chavista home. The opposition also hangs dummies or dolls that are dressed and styled to look like chavistas or like Chavez and Maduro.

The picture above was taken during a protest while Maria Corina Machado, one of the opposition leaders, talked to the people, she was completely ok with this display of hate. Today, 21/03, she is talking to the OAS.

And that’s just a tiny example of the true nature of some protesters. What’s worse is that chavistas have every reason to fear the opposition since the number of deaths linked to the cleaning of the barricades (called guarimbas in venezuela) is rising as the opposition gets more frustrated with the lack of military help from USA. The opposition extremists even go so far as to threaten or physically harm anyone who dares to move their barricades when people just want to be able to go to work or to school. In the guarimbas they hang wires across the streets so that they can kill or harm motorcyclists who are specially targeted and stigmatized as criminals or chavistas (which to the opposition seems to be the same) even if they’re just regular people going to work

In this video you can watch the struggle of a communty living with guarimbas, in the minute 4:25 you can see the moment the protesters (called guarimberos) start shooting against the people and only stop once the GNB (Bolivarian National Guards) arrives. At least 30 people have died due to not being able to get to a hospital because the guarimberos wouldn’t let them go through. 6 GNB, cops and other public workers have died in the violent protests. 8 people have died because they tried to clean the barricades/guarimbas.

The last (and probably the most horrible) action they have committed is burning the UNEFA, a public university and one of the first universities founded in Chavez government.

This is when the fire first started:

And this is how it looks now

What kind of student protests would attack an university?

Is this democratic?

Is this peaceful?
