(en) Venezuela, Declaration of El Libertario on Hugo Chavez's death (ca, fr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 07 Mar 2013 17:35:58 +0200

Nor mourning, nor party! Time for autonomy of social struggles has arrived! ---- Add up when a serious illness, medical decisions conditioned by short-sighted policies, and patient hallucinated by the government, only such an end was expected: the leader is dead, and then we end up with a change substantial on the Venezuelan political scene. ---- In an instant, what was the greatest strength of the plan is its main weakness: Chávez was all, and it is no longer there, it remains only to stave off absolute fidelity to his memory with the obedience to its provisions succession, which highlights the weakness of a government that has sought to strengthen its allegedly "Socialist People" with the practice of a grotesque personality cult, which has become empty of its invocation soul. The deceased himself is primarily responsible for this outcome.

The secrecy surrounding his illness was powered by the same springs the extreme centralization of power, which, for lack of ideological coherence internally, leaving his followers fend them to the legacy of the command, with a clear advantage for senior bureaucrats "rojo-rojitos" [dark red] and the military caste in negotiation tasks to ensure impunity for corruption.

As for the right-wing opposition Social Democrats and the new situation is without having overcome the defeats of presidential elections of 7-O [7 October] and regional 16-D [16 December], in which elections they were engaged with enormous illusions and with the offer of a "rich populism," promising voters to maintain and be effective in the use of instruments that have both patronage benefited Chávez. Now the opposition wants to believe that accommodative metastasis chance finally placed within his reach his ascension to political power whose ambitions and mistakes, laziness and incompetence were kept away from the many years, they can exert a predatory stupidity and eagerness similar to that bobibourgeoisie Chavez [Bolivarian bourgeoisie] practiced.

Faced with this petty and opportunistic calculations, where the equivalent Gran Polo Patriotic and opposition Mesa de Unidad Democrática, we have a serious situation in the country: high inflation, rising unemployment and job insecurity, devaluation money, terrible personal insecurity, crisis services, water and electricity, education and health of soils, lack of housing, public works or obsolete implementation hasty aid only demagogic for extreme deficiencies of the needy, and a long list that is not less disastrous.

These issues are not the central concern of both sides vying for the Silla de Miraflores [seat of the presidency] and the oil loot. For this reason, our collective response should ignore their blackmail demands from us in exchange for electoral support solutions that never arrive or are ridiculously incomplete.

It's time to spill the rotten political leadership and build from below, a true democracy, with equality, social justice and freedom. We must strengthen the widespread outrage at the situation we suffer the social struggles into autonomous, self-managed and extended, saying politicians clearly the power that we do not need them or as powerful as intermediaries granting us that us downstairs and united, can harvest without "white hands" or "red berets".
