Elections in Venezuela are only two weeks away...and the US/Corporate Empire's manipulation machine is gearing up and running. Bush era Ambassador to Venezuela Patrick Duddy has written an article outlining options for intervention in Venezuela and corporate media are publishing one spurious article after another to cast doubt on the electoral process.

We've seen this kind of thing before, and if solidarity activists do not speak up now, the odds are all the worse that interference will proceed unimpeded. Now is the time to raise our voices!.
