Chavez could signed an Amnesty Law to release some Political Prisoners


UPDATED

3 former commissaries from Intelligence Police DISIP, Henry Vivas, Lazaro Forero and Ivan Simonovis, among with student leader Nixon Moreno, who is refuged at the Vatican Embassy in Caracas won't receive a pardon too, so apparently this was a lie by SOB Hugo Chavez, people are very upset.

Following this link you could sign an online petition to release all political prisoners in Venezuela

5:45pm (gmt-4): Chavez has just announce he will decree an Amnesty Law in order to release the Political Prisoners, apparently all of them, those who are listed in the VenezuelaAwarness site. But he also said those who were not present to the Tribunals (the exile ones) won't received those benefits (like the leaders of the 2002 strike and protests, Carlos Ortega and Pedro Carmona). He is just signing the different pardons. But the reporters of state owned VTV TV Station still attacking those persons saying they are rightist coupist. He also conceded other 36 pardons as usual every New Year's Eve. But Chavez is continuing saying there is not political prisoners, but he said "most of the input charges are political charges... ... They are politics person prisoned, there is nobody in jail for his politics, or for his thoughts" he lied (I mean said).

The International Herald Tribune Report:
Associated Press (31 December 2007): President Hugo Chavez granted amnesty Monday to those accused of involvement in a failed 2002 coup that briefly drove him from power.

Chavez said he signed an amnesty decree that would also pardon others accused in suspected attempts to overthrow the government or assassinate him. It was not immediately clear how many accused opponents would be affected by the amnesty.

The decree would also pardon others charged in suspected attempts to overthrow the government or assassinate him, Chavez said. It was not immediately clear how many accused opponents would be affected by the amnesty.

"It's a matter of turning the page," Chavez said in a telephone call to state television on New Year's Eve. "We would like a country that moves toward peace."

Chavez read aloud the new law, which grants amnesty to those who signed a decree recognizing an interim government that briefly replaced him during the 2002 coup. Chavez was ousted by dissident military officers, but was returned to the presidency by loyalist generals within two days, amid street protests by his supporters.

Opponents accused of taking over Venezuela's state television channel during the coup would also fall under the amnesty, along with those who sought to sabotage the oil industry during an opposition-led strike that followed the coup, he said.

Opponents accuse the socialist Chavez — a close friend of Cuban leader Fidel Castro — of seeking to quash dissent and concentrate power in his own hands.

But he called his amnesty decree proof that "we want there to be a strong ideological and political debate — but in peace."

He reiterated that no one in Venezuela is jailed "for his political ideas," regardless of the law.

Comments about this among Venezuelans are the same, Even if the monkey wears silk, monkey he remains.

First political prisoner was freed in Venezuela










HRF Report

HRF’s First Prisoner of Conscience Free on Conditional Release; Francisco Usón Joined His Family on Christmas Eve...

CARACAS, Venezuela -- At 7:30 p.m. on December 24, 2007 in Caracas, Venezuela, the Human Rights Foundation’s first political prisoner and prisoner of conscience, Francisco Usón, was freed by the judge presiding over appeals in his case.

“This is magnificent for Francisco Usón, for his family, and for all of us who oppose political persecution,” said Thor Halvorssen, HRF’s president. “Although the conditions of his release are outrageously severe he will be at home and away from a prison where his life was in constant danger.”

Usón, a retired army general and former cabinet minister in the government of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez, was sentenced to five-and-a-half years of prison in a maximum security jail for having uttered a statement expressing concern for human rights. The comment Usón made was broadcast on television and was deemed “defamatory” of the armed forces of Venezuela. A full report about Usón’s case, including a four-minute video, can be found at www.CaracasNine.com.

In December of 2006, days after HRF began a campaign for Usón’s freedom which included legal letters to the Venezuelan government, President Chávez offered Usón a presidential pardon. Usón rejected the pardon on the basis of his innocence—he wanted complete exoneration, not a pardon provided for political expediency to prevent the government further international embarrassment. Usón declared last night, “I never felt guilty, which is why I never asked for forgiveness and why I did not accept the pardon.”

Usón told HRF that “this is only the beginning—working with HRF I will labor to free every last one of the political prisoners I left behind. Despite what we are living, nobody can control our consciences—we are a country of free men and women.”

The Venezuelan government has imprisoned numerous student dissidents, former military officers, and policemen, and has persecuted hundreds of dissenters through questionable legal proceedings.

The Suitcase Scandal: FBI arrested 3 Venezuelans linked to it

For information regarding the Suitcase Scandal, please check this Wiki-page

FBI PRESS RELEASE

December 12, 2007

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FOUR FOREIGN NATIONALS ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH BEING ILLEGAL AGENTS OF A FOREIGN GOVERNMENT

Three Venezuelans and an Uruguayan national were arrested last night and appeared in federal court in Miami today on charges of acting and conspiring to act as agents of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela within the United States, without prior notification to the Attorney General of the United States, as required by law, announced Kenneth L. Wainstein, Assistant Attorney General for Justice Department's National Security Division, R. Alexander Acosta, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and Jonathan I. Solomon, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Miami Field Office.

Charged in the complaint were defendants Moises Maionica, 36, Antonio Jose Canchica Gomez, 37, Rodolfo Edgardo Wanseele Paciello, 40, Franklin Duran, 40, and Carlos Kauffmann, 35. All have been arrested, except for defendant Antonio Jose Canchica Gomez, who remains at large. If convicted, the defendants face a statutory maximum penalty of ten (10) years' imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.

According to the complaint filed in federal court, the defendants coordinated and participated in a series of meetings, beginning in August 2007, in South Florida with Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson to procure Antonini's help in concealing the source of an intended $800,000 cash contribution to the political campaign of a candidate in the recent Argentine presidential election of Oct. 28, 2007. The last meeting took place on Dec. 11, 2007, when defendants Maionica, Duran, and another individual met with Antonini to discuss the creation of false documents in furtherance of the cover-up.

The events culminating in today's criminal charges began on Aug. 4, 2007, when Antonini flew by Cessna Citation, bearing registration number N5113S, from Venezuela to Aeroparque Jorge Newbery in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The privately chartered aircraft had previously departed from Caracas Maiquetía International Airport in Venezuela, carrying eight passengers on board, including, among others, Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson. Upon arrival at Buenos Aires, Argentine Customs Service inspected the luggage offloaded from the Cessna Citation, and found approximately $800,000 in United States currency in luggage being carried by Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson. The Argentine authorities seized the money and Antonini returned to his South Florida home.

The complaint alleges that beginning in mid-August, 2007 and continuing through Dec. 11, 2007, the defendants and other participants in the conspiracy, acting as agents of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, sought to obtain the assistance of Guido Alejandro Antonini Wilson, a U.S. citizen who travels under both United States and Venezuelan passports, in concealing from the people of Argentina and others, the source and destination and the role of the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in the attempted delivery of the approximately $800,000.

During these meetings, the defendants told Antonini that various high-ranking Venezuelan government officials, including the Office of the Vice President of the Republic, members of the DISIP (Intelligence and Preventive Services Directorate), and a high-ranking official from the Justice Ministry of Venezuela, were aware of this matter. The defendants told Antonini that these funds had been destined for the campaign of a candidate in the Argentine presidential election of Oct. 28, 2007.

He was also writer of many episodes of Murphy Brown. Candance Bushnell, author of the book who inspired the TV show is one of the Producers.



Everyone from the original series is in the Movie (including Chris Noth as Big), but there is some interesting names in the cast: Oscar Winner Jennifer Hudson as Carrie's assistant (yes our girl now has an assistant), and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg appears as himself.






As 19 September 2007, the movie status was filming, I think they should be already on postproduction.

The plot is a completely secret. I wondering if the teamwork has planed some surprises for us, such as Aidan's appearance maybe... ?

Some release dates:
Germany 29 May 2008
France 30 May 2008
USA 30 May 2008
Singapore 5 June 2008
Netherlands 12 June 2008

Some opposition leaders were attacked by National Guard inside the National Electoral Council building. At this time 3:00am people still on streets celebrating.

Enormeous Demonstration Against Chavez Regime


Today, 29th November 2007, people of Venezuela, and also from Colombia, among other immigrants in the country, gathered and filled the big Bolivar Avenue on Caracas (around 10 blocks), in fact the avenue was too little, the demonstration pass it through Libertador Av. This demonstration took place as a formal close campaign to vote NO on the upcoming referendum election about the (un) constitutional reform. The demonstration was convoked by the Student Movement, and some political parties. Other groups and NGO's assisted to the demonstration. To name some of them: Political Parties (Acción Democrática, MAS, Bandera Roja & ABP -Social Democrat- COPEI -Social Christian- , Un Nuevo Tiempo -center-, Primero Justicia -Right-, Podemos -Left / Socialist / former Chavez supporter-) NGO (National Command for Resistance CNR), Workers, Teachers Unions, Entrepreneurs, Journalists, Actors, Church nuns, homeless...even Don Quixote!

On this, already defined as one of the biggest demonstration in Venezuela ever, several leaders speak to the people gathered , mostly student's leaders (Yon Goicoechea, Freddy Guevara, Eduardo Torres, Ricardo Sánchez, Desiree Zambrano). Mayors of Chacao & Baruta municipalities in Caracas also made speeches, while 2 helicopters from the Regime were flying all over the rally. By the way, one of them belongs to Miranda State Police, so he violated the air space, as the demonstration took place on Libertador Municipality of Capital District, not in Miranda State! (pic).

Everyone converged in the opinion to not trust of this National Electoral Council, but they said they need to go to this election to fight on a democratic way. But they warn to the Electoral Council to do a clean and trusty electoral process or they won't recognize the results (if YES win, that is expected as the regime has total control over the National Electoral Council, the Tribunal of Justice and the Telecoms Company (CANTV) who will control the data transmission, plus Chavez Regime nationalized around a million of foreigners in order to vote YES, Terrorist FARC member Rodrigo Granda is included) and they will take the streets to fight for each vote. Plus, the brother of current CANTV President (chosen by Chavez) is the Chief of the Telecoms and Computing department of Electoral Council, and they create an Informatics laboratory where the data from all the country will be received and totalizing, on the Bolivarian University, an University created by Chavez, where only Chavez supporter can study, and where his hordes, guerrilla based groups used to hidden.

In the middle of the demonstration, National Electoral Council order to retire the backing poster the opposition put in the concentration, but they rejected that saying the Regime exposed a big poster promoting YES vote (on a state building - the tallest in Venezuela- near the demonstration, check picture here, YES = SI, the poster goes all the building down) when, according to the Law, He can't do that.

Also, the state-owned VTV (Venezolana de Televisión) violated the Responsibility on Radio and TV Law when the exposed untrusted information, showing images of the Bolivar Avenue, on early hours today, when the avenue was empty, and then broadcast saying it was during the demonstration of the "oposicionism" (as VTV , Chavez Regime and their supporters call us). Also they said opposition and students use buses to bring persons from other places of Venezuela to the demonstration, but the buses they sought near by was some buses an concert production company parked because today night Argentinean group Soda Stereo would performed (the most popular rock band in Latin America by the way, and they are doing a special re-union tour). ...VTV dumbass!

Picture from AFP

On early morning also Spanish journalists denounced some of their team was detained inside the former Hilton Hotel by Chavez Regime and avoided them to cover the opposition demonstration.
You can find more pictures and videos here ( Link I | Link II). Additionally a blog about this demonstration was created: Estudiantes en la Bolivar.

Also, check this very interesting report from, nothing else nothing more than Al-Jazeera.

Tomorrow Chavez Regime will close their campaign in the same avenue.

Colombia - Venezuela Relationships in the Edge of a Rupture


Update

Chavez said today (November 28)
"While Uribe is the President of Colombia, I don't want any relationship with Colombia"

Analysts say relations between Colombia and Venezuela are on its worst time ever. Today Hugo Chavez gave another of his mad speeches, pointing Spain & Colombia Governments, specially the last one. Chavez said;

"Colombian Government doesn't want peace, I'm convinced...
...I have lost total trust on Colombian Government... "I put the relations with that Government in the freezer... ... Uribe has spit me on my face, it is unworthy!... ... Is very serious when a Government lie... ... Uribe lies in a horrible and shameless way... ...Colombia deserves a better President, a worthy one!".

Chavez also alert National Army Forces to be on High Alert, after possibles Colombian (or US) Troops movement. "Now we know of what that President is capable of!" He also said, respecting Spain, he "freeze" the relations with Spain until King Juan Carlos apologizes to him, after the "Why don't you shut up?" incident. Colombian President, Alvaro Uribe Velez immediately respond this attack with a Hard Tone speech:

"...With your insults and your lack of arguments, you hurt the dignity of the own Venezuelan people... President Chavez you want to put on fire the whole continent... ... Your words and your attitude give the impression that you are not interested on Colombian peace, but Colombia to be a victim of a terrorist Government... ... We need mediators with the terrorism, not legitimators of the terrorism... You talk about Imperialism, but your expansionists politics are Imperialism.. ... We ask for help, not for expansionists projects... ... it can be substituted the law, for a personal whim".

He accused Chavez of wanting a Colombia governed by a Terrorist Group (FARC), he also said he received information from Colombian Consul in US, that Colombian Deputy Piedad Córdoba, who assisted Chavez with the meetings with terrorist group FARC in order to released (or at least that was the idea of the whole thing) the prisoners that terrorist group has (including a former Colombian Presidential candidate, Ingrid Betancourt); was speaking with one of those terrorists (that is in jailed in US for drugs charges), about make a transitory government in Colombia, among other political things.

After President Uribe speech Chavez quickly improvised a TV "show" Interview with his unconditional journalists (including former Vice-President, José Vicente Rangel), where he said he already ordered a "Crisis Meeting" with the rest of Chavez Regime members, he said this will have an impact on economic relations.

Chavez mess with Church leaders

Last night, on a TV show called "La Hojilla", from the stated TV station Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), whose host is well known for be drug addict & trafficker, Hugo Chavez attacked verbally the whole ecclesiastic bishopric leaders, including the maximums leaders of the Catholic Church in Venezuela and the recent past away Cardinal Velazco.

He also had swears to Evangelical Church, whose leaders in Venezuela said a couple of days ago that this (un) constitutional reform was a heresy.

Among with many other words he said;

"I condemn you to hell, you fake leader, go with Satan because here is the Divine propose, from Christ, poor redeemer, Viva Jesus, father and Revolutionary leader..

...there are fake leaders round there, manipulating, Catholic Bishops, and now there are Evangelical fake leaders. I'm sure the truly Evangelical Christians and Catholics support the reform
".

"Cardinal Urosa Sabino is a whole of a vagabond, Mister Mugger, and not only the Cardinal, from there, going down, all are stupids". "Cardinal Velazco is a black vulture, and a coupist".

Also, Chavez insult and called facist to the rector of UCAB University, and also to the President of the Federation of Chambers (FEDECAMARAS). He also said that all their supporters must to vote Yes to the reform or they will be marked as traitors. "A yes vote is a vote for Chavez". You can watch the video (un-subtitled) following this link. He also make threats to the bishops saying "they will pay for all they are doing right now".

We are waiting for a response from the Vatican and Evangelical World leaders.

New Time Zone for Venezuela next December

*********************IT'S OFFICIAL! *******************
Minister of Science & Technology already informed and official gazette was delivered, legalizing the Time Zone change from next December 9th at 7:00 am (UTC)
Time Zone will change from GMT-4 to GMT-4:30


Original post:

Today, the Vice-Minister of Planning and Development of the Minister of Science & Technology said the new Time Zone for Venezuela, who consist on a delay of 30 minutes (GMT - 4:30) will take place next December, probably the 9th or 10th, at 3:00 am (GMT - 4).


This CCT (Chavez Crazy Time) has no sense since, after the change, the sunset will be more earlier (specially from October to March) so more energy will be wasted, sending to trash that program implemented last year to change the light bulbs for the fluorescent ones.

Chavez regime said they want this delay, so people awake with the sun and be more productive at work (yes, exactly as you heard).
So, as I said on a post back on September, I still will be use the current time (GMT - 4), but in any case, Microsoft and Sun Microsystems already launched patches to introduce this Time Zone to the OS and Softwares, as it doesn't exist, no other country has this Time Zone, so Venezuela will has its unique Time Zone (this is perfectly understandable, coming from the twisted insane mind of Hugo Chavez and his pals).

"Time goes by, so slowly..."

National Guard Attacked Tachira Universities

Updated

Part of the arsenal used (More pictures and link below)


Today around noon, and while students where having lunch, National Guard attacked UNET University. The rector of the university was injured, affected by massive tear gas being thrown into the lunch hall and other places. Rector of UPEL University (Rubio Extension) was arrested after been assisting injured teachers. Persons reports brutal repression and strong disturbs all uptown of San Cristobal, capital city of Tachira state. Only in UNET University, at least 500 tear gas cans was collected and students are calling to bring mattress and supplies to pass the night over the University, after threats of military forces to take control of UNET University. ULA University students responded to the SOS called from UNET students and started a protests that, apparently still continues, despite the night hours. Some of the tear gas thrown felt into the University Laboratories, provoking a major danger to everybody inside in the University at that time. Persons also reported that military forces used lead pellets.


A soccer game between the teams of Venezuela and Bolivia is scheduled for tomorrow. In other part of Venezuela, in Caracas, students from Metropolitana University gave pamphlets, informing people about the (un)-constitutional reform (they elaborate a very cleaver quick test with some questions involving different subjects of the reform, letting the people decide if those questions are OK to the country or not).


Students from Monte Avila University (also in Caracas) gave a press meeting where they criticized the delayed of the Supreme Tribunal of Justice on bringing answers to their petition to postpone the reform election. They showed a tortoise with a billboard with the initials of the Tribunal of Justice (TSJ) on the press meeting table to compare how the Tribunal of Justice are working on this case. Unfortunately for them, we already know that the Magisterial Court is under total control of Chavez Regime, so they will rule in favor of do the reform election next December 2nd (13 days from now).

Added on November 20:

Here is another good quality copy click here. Other copies has been taking out from YouTube. Also some footage of the movie as been leaking into Internet, and Paramount is already asking for the deletion of them, you could still see those pictures at Project Cloverfield. But those pictures look more like set pictures, or maybe they are promotional pictures, in some of them we see Robby (the main dude) with the video camera. What I see with this new trailer is that J.J. Abrams want to promote this movie like the Blair Witch Project, I mean, the movie is based on video records from a group of persons who were in NYC while this monster destroy the city.

And for those who have been following the Viral Marketing, there is a site, apparently link with the movie, called

Chavez to Give Gulf & Put Hands on Nuclear Power

This is an article from El Universal Newspaper, based on a press meeting Chavez gave, only to International press and the state owned, VTV (Venezolana de Television).

Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez Thursday told a French TV channel that Venezuela, just like Iran, is launching a peaceful nuclear program.

"We are with Iran, and I do not think Iran is manufacturing atomic bombs," said Chávez. "Iran is developing nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, I am sure about that. Venezuela is also beginning to develop nuclear energy with peaceful purposes, just like Brazil and Argentina."

The Venezuelan ruler stressed the advantages of nuclear energy to reduce dependence on oil and help alleviate the effects of climate changes.

Chávez was talking about the Iranian nuke program because before flying to Paris he is making a stop in Tehran. The Venezuelan ruler showed confidence in diplomatic solution to the conflict and hoped "the terrible forecasts (US President) George W. Bush has made do not become a reality ever."

Chávez is scheduled to meet in Paris with French President Nicolás Sarkozy to talk about a likely humanitarian swap of hostages held by the rebel Colombian Revolutionary Armed Forces (FARC) for FARC fighters in jail. French citizen Ingrid Betancourt is among the hostages.

And I add, about the visit to Sarkozy, we need to remember that in France is jailed the Venezuelan Terrorist Ilich Ramirez "The Jackal", and Chavez could ask President Sarkozy to change Misters Betancourt with this guy who is rumored is family of the actual President of PDVSA, and Oil Minister, Rafael Ramirez.

Giving Part of Venezuela Gulf as a Gift:

According to the Newspaper "La Verdad", The Gulf of Venezuela won't be an exclusivity of the nation, now Colombia could has rights to a part of that maritime territory. Chavez Regime is planning to give about 2100 Kms. of that territory to Colombia, of the total of 27000 Kms the Gulf of Venezuela has. But the gift, not only include the maritime territory, but the oil reserves inside that territory also.

I personally think, Globovision TV station are in risk to be shutdown, they were very brave today. People in Venezuela are anger after heard Minister Carreño's speech.

Similar actions was reported in Lara, Merida, Carabobo and Tachira States. Next is a video from Tachira UCAT University, with SHOCKING IMAGES of a student with a big injured in his arm (viewer discretion is advised). Video was taken by on of the students:

(1) The information of the student dead is extra-official. The Director of Civil Protection said on a live broadcast via phone by Globovision (on the zone and before the second wave of shooting) that he received the information of "some one apparently died". Then, the director of the Medicine Faculty of the University said, also on a phone address to Globovision that was false. Students injured are being attending at the University Hospital.
