Chávez government sabotages Capriles campaign - yet again

Andrés Velázquez, an opposition politician from Guayana tells us this:

Opposition candidate Henrique Capriles was planning to visit Caicara del Orinoco in eastern Guayana. The military regime decided to close down the airport. The area is of difficult access, so it was either airport or boat through the Orinoco. That's the Venezuelan government the extreme left in Europe supports.

I wonder if there is any Chávez embassy employee out there who knows the whole world is Chavistas really think they won't ever be made accountable for this?

Caicara del Orinoco is really far away


  1. I hope Capriles took the boat.

    1. I am not sure that is an option, Stephanie. The second shortest way from Central or Northern Venezuela is taking a bad long road through Guárico, in the centre and then taking a flatboat at the Southern border...all through territory with Chavez mayors and lots of military controls "por la guerrilla" who will try to slow them down.

      Going to Caicara

      In Guárico there are a couple of miserable airports but you don't really want to use them. In any case: any other option would take more than a day. Caicara can be reached from the South through a road across the jungle...also not really an option.

      I think the opposition should denounce this abroad as much as it can, as simply as that.

  2. Well I am sure it is not THAT simple. I only meant that as a joke seeing as his campaign slogan is "Hay Un Camino". You know, to match the saying "Where there is a will, there is a way."
