¿Por qué resiste Venezuela?


El 5 de marzo de 2013 se destaparon muchas botellas en Washington, Londres, Madrid y Frankfurt para brindar por el fin de la “pesadilla chavista”. Mientras los cerros de Caracas lloraban la muerte del presidente Hugo Chávez Frías, los centros de poder global celebraban, convencidos que su desaparición física llevaría, inevitablemente, a la fragmentación del campo bolivariano. Insistían en que el cambio que había ocurrido en Venezuela desde 1999, sólo se explicaba por el “caudillismo” de su líder. Pero sin Chávez, todo el andamiaje de la revolución se derrumbaría en cuestión de días y ningún otro dirigente bolivariano podría asumir un liderazgo capaz de dar continuidad al proceso. Sin Chávez, repetían, moría el chavismo. Ignoraban que Chávez pertenece al linaje de los libertadores de América Latina, que en el último siglo ha producido líderes excepcionales como Sandino, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara o Salvador Allende. Como ellos, Chávez hizo suyas las banderas de los próceres de la primera -y frustrada- independencia de la Patria Latinoamericana y las convirtió en un proyecto político de unidad e integración continental cuya punta de lanza es la justicia social y el antiimperialismo.

Felipe González: “I do not ask to be lawyer, single technical adviser, and that is a right of defence”

After a meeting with representatives of the table of Democratic Unity (MUD) and corporate lawyer from Israel, the Spanish ex-President Felipe González said that is pending authorisation to visit political prisoner Leopoldo López.

He also said agree with all electoral needs raised by the Venezuelan opposition, while waiting for response from the national Government, after having requested a meeting.


“I never asked to be lawyer of Leopoldo López, it is only technical advice and is a right of Defense”, said as he assured that it will respect the decision of the TSJ regarding his participation in the case of the political prisoners.

The former President of the Spanish Government Felipe González met today with representatives of the opposition table of Democratic Unity (MUD), Efe informed the Executive Secretary of this political grouping, Jesús Torrealba.

“We will have a meeting of the former President González with the plenary of the Democratic Unity table, that is scheduled at 12.00 local time (1630 GMT)”, said the head of the Venezuelan opposition alliance, comprising the majority of opposition parties, prior to the appointment.

At the meeting “simply we will talk, we will provide information about the development of the political, economic and social crisis in the country with an emphasis on the issue of political prisoners and human rights,” said the spokesman without giving further details.

The meeting involves, in addition to Torrealba, representatives of the 28 political organizations that make up the MUD.

It is expected that, after the meeting with the opposition, Gonzalez hold a meeting with the Publisher and Venezuelan politician Teodoro Petkoff, EfE reported sources close to the journalist.

Gonzalez collected last May 6 in Madrid the journalism award Ortega y Gasset, granting the newspaper “El País”, on behalf of Petkoff, who could not attend to pick it up by having prohibited the departure of Venezuela following a complaint against him for defamation by the President of the Venezuelan National Assembly, Diosdado Cabello.

According to the same sources, the former Spanish President delivered probably tomorrow, Tuesday, the award to Venezuelan journalist.

Gonzalez arrived Sunday to Caracas with the intention of joining, as “external technical advisor”, the legal team which is responsible for defending opponents Leopoldo López and Antonio Ledezma.

The Spanish Socialist former leader, which at the moment has not offered details of his visit to the South American country, met yesterday with families and lawyers of both opponents to know the details of their causes.

In addition, he managed to visit for nearly half an hour to Ledezma, who is being held at his residence under house arrest after leaving the Ramo Verde military prison last April for health reasons.

Ledezma, accused of conspiring against the Government, preliminary hearing will be held, according to his wife, on June 9, while the next session of the trial that Lopez, for promoting violence in a protest, is scheduled for June 10, the same day on which it is intended that concluded the visit of Gonzalez.

The decision by Gonzalez to defend “ad honorem” these opponents was dismissed by the Venezuelan authorities, and after becoming public, the Spanish Uribe was declared person “non grata” by the Venezuelan Parliament.

The President of the Venezuelan justice Supreme Court (TSJ), Gladys Gutiérrez, reiterated yesterday that the former President of the Spanish Government not can join the defense of opposition prisoners, because he cannot exercise as a lawyer in Venezuela.

Spanish politician “may not exercise the right professional in a criminal case within the national territory, since they violate the lawyers law and the certification of professional degree that demands the Magna Carta to exercise that profession in our country”, said Gutierrez.
