Venuzela: So what if they dare

13-08-2004 23:56

The referendum, as we had thought, will constitute a fabulous scenario for the deployment of an extraordinary potential of movilization, organization, debate, and of liberation, to a certain degree, of several points of popular organization that for a long time had been trapped by the bureaucracy introduced by government-supporting political parties; the organized or disorganized spontaneity with which the patrols, the local commands as well as the defense preparation have been developing, in the midst of the chaos of our own world, the participation and the intense involvement of the people in charge, is the best testimony to it all.

On that aspect, without a doubt, the referendum has been one of the experiences that has provoked the same passionate reactions in the populace, comparable to those of April 13th, or during the rescue of PDVSA, or even during the oligarchic imperialistic sabotage of that date. This event, as was expected, is going to be tinged with a lot of tension, both nationally and internationally, as the presence of the masses in the streets was intensified: today, the red and black background of the NO ads, fills up the walls of the country, and victory of President Chavez is irreversible. The referendum has been part of a struggle in the midst of a historical moment, where a single world order is trying to be installed, commanded by the military, technological, communicational, and of course economical forces led by the US and the so-called G8.

If the ESF wasn't bad enuff in trying to re-order what has largely been described as the 'anti-globalisation' movement into a sterile talking shop and recuitment ground for lenist/statist projects, the hype around Chavez seems to have given a boost to this old movement the same way that the Zapatista uprising gave to the anti-statist movements.
