When Hugo Chavez was riding the crest of his popularity he used to boast that sovereignity resided in the people. In this clip he is shown saying first” The day people rise against me, let’s assume they take to the streets, I would prefer, a million times, to leave Government…” in the second he says, “The day people don’t want me, I would leave…..”. The statements are mixed in with images of the two one million-people plus rallies against him in April and October and a famous Venezuelan bolero in the background, “Recordar es Vivir”. To remember is to live.
The Internet: You can lie, but you can’t hide!
If you can’t see it, you can download the movie here. It’s in Windows Media Player, so it’s very likely you will have to download it and then open it in Windows Media Player…
Thanks to my brother the Tyromaniac for doing the hard work…..
