NO A LA INTERVENCION DE ESTADOS UNIDOS EN VENEZUELA (tags)
Un referéndum para revocar el Presidente Hugo Chávez y varios políticos antichavistas será convocado para el mes de agosto.

A referendum to recall President Chavez as well as a number of anti-chavista elected officials is being called for August. US pressure to overthrow President Chavez and get its hands on the oil of the venezuelan people is greater than ever. We demand that the media report what is happening in Venezuela rather than act as employees of the hated and unelected Bush administration.
