BREAKING NEWS: Venezuelan People Surround TV Stations

December 10, 2002, 2 a.m. ET
Please Distribute Widely


Dear Colleagues,

Alex Main reports from Caracas that masses of Venezuelans have peacefully
surrounded all the commercial TV stations in the country to protest the
dishonest simulating efforts by these media giants to provoke a coup d'etat:


The Narco Newsroom will not sleep tonight as immediate history turns in our
Amrica. Within the next hour, we will file a more detailed report.

We serve notice to the corporate "press freedom" organizations and other
professional simulators that the vocal defense of the public's right to free
speech and peaceful assembly is the foundation of all freedom of speech:
Enough already with the double standard. Peaceful demonstrations outside of
TV stations are healthy for democracy and healthy for journalism.

We urge our readers to be vigilant in the coming hours and to combat the
inevitable distorted reports with our own free speech and press.

What is taking place right now in the streets of every major Venezuelan city
is a scenario championed by Narco News last Spring in our Second Mission
Statement, "The Masses vs. the Media." Venezuela's people are the inventors
in what has become a giant "immedia laboratory" as described in that report:


For Authentic Democracy, like Authentic Journalism, to survive, an open and
popular confrontation with the discourse - and power - of simulating news
corporations, their owners, and their agents, is necessary. Tonight's
unmasking of the true powers behind this week's attempted coup that posed
falsely as a "strike" marks a key turning point in that struggle, our global
struggle, and yours.

That battle is being fought tonight in Venezuela. By morning, the terms of
the international debate over media will be born anew. Watch and participate
with us in the rebirth of Authentic Democracy tonight and in the days to
come, right here on Narco News, in solidarity with Civil Society on a street
called Amrica.

from somewhere in a country called Amrica,

Al Giordano
The Narco News Bulletin
