Two million signatures handed in

November 7, 2002

Press reports indicate that at least ten people were injured today when supporters of Hugo Chavez attempted to stop the march that was going to the Electoral Commission to hand in two million signatures to ask for a referendum. In the best democratic spirit, the Chavistas threw rocks and burned tires to block the demonstration. The National Guard used tear gas to stop them and the march reached the CNE succesfully. Once again, the true colors of Chavez and his supporters comes through. Anyone that has doubts as to who was responsible for the deaths in April should just look at the events today and think back. It is crystal clear. Now we have to sit back and as General Medina said, see what type of legal maneuvering Chavez does to stop the opposition.
