Another day, another march in Venezuela

Venezuela’s got a new education law in the works–the Organic Law of Education (“organic”, in this sense, refers to any law with a direct constitutional basis). To hear the screaming lamestream media up here tell it, there is widespread opposition to it. But what they keep neglecting to say is that the support for this new law is at least twice as widespread, as this march in favor (photographed by Arturo Alejandro for Aporrea) demonstrates:


Just to give you some idea of the size of the crowd.


Uncle Sam was there!


So were these Peruvians, carrying their flag.


This guy told the photographer he used to be an Adeco (supporter of the old Acción Democrática party, which is now but a shadow of its former self, thanks to four decades of corruption, murder, torture and toadying to the bankers.) He has since seen the light, as his appearance demonstrates. He’s even got a pocket-size Chavecito figure!


“Ask the DEA and you’ll see–Uribe, the empire’s fool, is the US’s Narcotrafficker #82.”

No shit, the lamestream media up here has even reported that.


Simón Bolívar ¡PRESENTE!


And of course, no Chavista march would be complete without a larger-than-life cut-out of Chavecito. This one has arms that move, doing his signature palm-punching victory salute.

Finally, here’s some video to show how peaceful this demo was:

So what were the oppos up to, you wonder? Well, they too turned out for their own little march. But they weren’t having nearly as much fun, though apparently not for lack of firecrackers:

They threw rocks and bottles at the police, who were not carrying guns. Funny how those people just can’t ever seem to have a march without violence breaking out. And even funnier how the lamestream media up here can’t seem to report that part for shit.
