A response by El Libertario to the statement of FAU on the death of Hugo Chavez. In memory of their beloved comrade Rafael Sposito (a.k.a.) "Daniel Barrett". Originally published in Spanish in TIERRA Y LIBERTAD, Madrid, May 2013, #298, p. 3-6. Translated by Julio Pacheco.
When an illness becomes serious, when medical attention becomes a vehicle for myopic, politically motivated decisions and when a patient becomes drunk with power, it can only end this way. The strongman has died, and in so doing, he has initiated a substantial shift in the Venezuelan political landscape.
Statement in support of Cuban Anti-Authoritarian/Horizontalist organizers, workers, activists, artists, musicians y mas in Cuba. Scroll down to see current list of endorsements and the original statement in Spanish.
This is a brief outline of the libertarian footprint in the history of Venezuela, prepared by members of the Collective Editorship of El Libertario. We hope that this serves as a useful point of reference for those who are interested in the subject.
