Chavez supporters gather signatures to recall opposition Deputies

November 22, 2003

The petition drive by pro-Chavez supporters to recall opposition Deputies to the National Assembly began yesterday morning. Despite claims by the Chavista that their drive is a total success, evidence suggests otherwise, only in polling places where they have run out of material have there been lines. Below are picture I took this morning between 11AM and 12 AM, three of them near barrios (two in the western part of Caracas) and one of them (bottom right) in a midlle class area of Caracas. Only one of them appeared to have people waiting to sign, the rest appered to be just people hanging around and talking. Next Saturday I will do the same with the petition drive against Chavez, unfortunately the polling places will be different, so that I will not be able to take the exact same pictures.
