O12 (Venezuela) prisoners free!

07-12-2004 00:20

As of December 6th, the three prisoners being held for the toppling of the statue of Columbus in Plaza Venezuela in Caracas were released from prison, but one of them, the most vocal of the group, Freddy Tabarquino, is still set to stand trial inliberty. There is, however, a good possibility that other individuals who have stepped forward to declare responsibility will face trial and/or imprisonment, but there has yet to be a response to the request for a collective trial for all 200 who have declared responsibility for the action.

The USA & Economic Terrorism: TLC/AFTA/WTO

30-11-2004 06:06

From Chile to You - HAtred Grows
USA people grow fat off the mass murder terrorristic policies of their government. 90 % of US people and all of the political parties are pro-AFTA , free trade and WTO. Time that the world recognizes that the USA is dangerous, W Bush is the real terrorist, and the greed-based denial of most USA people guarantees the continued denial that these free trade programs and USA foreign policies are just like the war in IRAQ – a terrorism of mindless evil...hope that Latin Americans are not deluded. We hope that it is not too late for them to grasp that help will never come from anyone in the USA.

Chavez, TNCs revolucionary

22-10-2004 11:59

The August 2004 elections legitimized Hugo Chávez's presidency, approved by the multinational powers-that-be, despite the opposition's claims of electoral fraud. We, at El Libertario (issue 39, September/October 2004), presented an indepth analysis of the consecuences of the referendum, as well as proposals for action in the new circumstances. We shall now quote a couple of notes from that issue that express the essence of the venezuelan anarchists' perspective.
