Oh, Majunche. The harder you try to bring down the elected president, the more it backfires on you. Case in point: The video above. And here’s the story:
On Tuesday, at 6 a.m., residents of Los Teques, capital of the state of Miranda, blocked access to the pan-American highway in protest against the absent governor, Henrique Capriles Radonski.
Elías Jaua, president of CorpoMiranda and protector of the region, said that according to information gathered by the Bolivarian National Police (PNB), the protests in Miranda are due to the suspension of classes ordered by the primary authority of the state:
“The suspension of classes ordered by the Governor of Miranda to oblige teachers to march has occasioned the protests by the communities.”
On his Twitter account, @JauaMiranda, Jaua informed that “the communities of Miranda were attacked by the governor’s fascist bands and resulted in incidents already under control by the PNB.”
He also stated that the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) is contacting all its social and political directors to peacefully resolve the situation and assist in unblocking the roads.
“Once again, the irresponsibility of Governor Capriles has occasioned anxiety and violence in the populace. Ungovernability in Miranda!” wrote Jaua.
Imagine that. A fascist governor (seldom, if ever, seen in his home state, where he’s suppposed to be, you know, GOVERNING), trying to force teachers to walk out in protest against the federal government. He’s so desperate to bring it down that he’s rolling out the astroturf. But unlike the fascist trucker putsch of Chile in 1973, this one’s an epic fail. The roads got shut down by supporters of the federal government. And the same government is now peacefully resolving the situation. Which is exactly the opposite of what you’ll read in the anglo whore media, if you read anything about it at all.
