anarchists declare thereselves opponents of
both Left and Right authoritarians
NEITHER CHÁVEZ NOR CARMONA: Self-management is the way
Due to the political crisis in Venezuela shown in the events of
before, during and after April 11, the anarchists feel a need to show
our position. To this end:
1) The contradictory politics of Hugo Chávez have not benefited
the poorest sectors of the country, in three years of management
the indices of poverty, unemployment and social insecurity have
increased. What's more, the Chávez government is repeating the
mistakes and vices of previous governments. The alternative
proposed by the different sectors of the current opposition that is
trying to politically make use of the events of April 11 is, by no
means, different or satisfactory.
2) We energetically condemn any coup d'etât, no matter where it
comes from. We oppose the preponderant position the armed
forces currently have to solve problems which should, [instead] be
solved by the direct and active participation of the society itself.
3) We declare ourselves opponents of both Left and Right
authoritarians, as can be seen in the form of thinking and the acts
carried out so much by the "officialist" representatives as of the
opposition. They are all based on the simplifying the problems of
the country, speeches based on social and political exclusion,
closed door agreements, manipulating the media within its reach
and using anti-democratic methods at its pleasure.
4) We reject the violations of Human Rights that took place during
the Coup government lead by the businessman Pedro Carmona
Estanga. The repression of grassroots protests, the taking over of
community media, the arbitrary detentions and the witch-hunt
undertaken, certify the dictatorial nature of the regime that tried to
take over the country. Likewise, we cannot forget the accomplices
and opportunists that recognised and welcomed the installation of
this de facto government.
5) We demand that the responsibility of the deaths occurred on
April 11 in the centre of the city be cleared up, as well as of the
those of victims in the following days in the west of Caracas. We
support an impartial and non-governmental investigation, in order
to clear the facts, indicate the murderers and make them
responsible for their acts against society.
6) The demonstrations of citizens that took place during those
days are proof that active, conscious and responsible participation
by the people influence the decisions of those in the power and
are the seed of direct and self-managed democracy. To this end,
anarchists once again show our commitment with the cooperative,
autonomous, and horizontal processes that lead towards the
self-management of society that can solve its own problems and
which also opposes the inequality that caused by current
