Chavez, Maduro and Venezuela the story they don’t want you to read

By Greg Palast

Venezuelan president Nicholás Maduro wrote on Op Ed published in the New York Times yesterday calling for peace.

As someone who knows president Nicholás Maduro, Hugo Chavez’ successor, (and Maduro’s opponents), I can say that I’ve never met a head of state (and I’ve met many) who absolutely gives a real shit about the average working person of his nation.

Venezuela is Occupy Wall Street on its head: the 1% are out in the street, violently hoping to overthrow the government elected by working people. Are the Kochs involved?

Why not read my reports on Venezuela?

● Did Chavez’ Pick Steal the Election in Venezuela?

● Hugo Chavez vs “The Network”

● The Koch Brothers, Hugo Chavez and the XL Pipeline

● Big Oil, Big Ketchup and The Assassination of Hugo Chavez

And once again, to shed light through the US media bullshit on Venezuela, my not-for-profit foundation is offering my film, “The Assassination of Hugo Chavez” as a FREE Download.
