  • Reuters talks of YES vote – Bolivarians start to celebrate

    8.20 pm in Caracas, no official results are yet known, but according to figures quoted by Reuters, the YES vote would win by between 6 and 8 points, and this is what the international media (never friendly to the Bolivarian revolution) is starting to report. Other sources give the YES a bigger lead.

    Bolivarian supporters have started to gather outside Miraflores palace to celebrate. The leader of the reactionary students Yon Goicoechea appeal to his supporters to stay in the polling stations and “defend the vote”, implying that fraud is going on.

    ¡Viva la Revolución Bolivariana!
    ¡Viva El Processo!
    ¡Viva Chávez!

    Los amigos americanos de Presidente Chavez y la Revolución en inglés…
