    My Dear Yates! It is a good piece. I will use the material for a write up in my language Kannada, of Karnataka State, India. I only wish Chavez’s work has impacted well and it sustains. Irrespective of the results of he impending election in Venezuela , the path he has laid may have to be adhered to by anybody there. His influence was beyond his own Nation and entire South America is in a flux because of him.

    chavez was a real inspiration, with real achievements – a rare combination, especially in these days when the will to fightback in the usa is reduced to casting votes for imperial slaughter and wage/debt slavery.

    my only problem with him was his optimism re obama, which i think he gave up before his death (?).

    Chavez was an extremely courageous and inspiring leader with a genuine concern for the poor in Venezuela and throughout the world. I worry that the U.S. and its allies will pour money into the coffers of the opposition and attempt to overthrow the Bolivarian revolution. This would have serious consequences for the majority of people in Latin America. Unfortunately, here in Canada we have little knowledge or appreciation of Chavez and his efforts due to our extremely biased media.

      Chavez go bad press here too!

      Let’s hope that changes have taken place deep enough that the enemies of the people will be defeated.
