Venezuela: Blog About Constitutional Reform

Venezuela's Constitutional Reform is a blog that was created “by a group of bloggers to explain to the outside work why the Venezuelan constitutional reform is dangerous for Venezuelan democracy.”

  • The U. S. media is replete these days with editorial hit men busy misinforming the public about the proposed reforms to the Venezuelan constitution with the customary demonization of Chavez and the portrayal of the reforms as ending life as we know it in Venezuela. The Venezuela Constitutional Reform blog appears to be doing the same thing, but dressed up high-tech. How about a little analysis focused on what really matters as the referendum on the reforms approaches: the people of Venezuela, their Bolivarian revolution, and their democratically-elected president?

    Hello. Despite an amnesty law signed by President Hugo Chávez in December of 2007, that purportedly ensured that no Venezuelan would be imprisoned for political reasons, Venezuelans are continually subjected to political persecution, imprisonment, torture and other cruel and degrading treatment for disagreeing with or opposing the government. Many of these prisoners are being held in inhumane conditions without access to medical care. Outside of Venezuela’s prisons, “political inhabilitation” has been used by the government to disqualify 400 potential candidates for office, among them, those who appear to be favorites in the upcoming November elections. It’s a very creative campaign to make noise about the struggle for Freedom in Venezuela. log on http://www.tellchavez.com , in Venezuela we have a political genocide
