Pictures From Venezuela

Taken at The Devil's Excrement

My name is Dorindo Burgo Arias. .... I belong to religious congregation of the Marists brothers. ... Around 1 PM I went to Plaza Francia of Altamira with my flag around my neck and the Constitution in my pocketÖI addressed those in uniform and from a distance of three to four meters I read to them Art. 68 of the Constitution which readsĒ The citizens have the right to protest, peacefully, without weapons. It is forbidden to use firearms or toxic substances in the control of peaceful demonstrations"
...
I ask to talk to their commander and they tell me to shut up. They put me in a motorcycle with a guard in front another in the back. They take me to a truck. Itís a closed truck. They throw me in the truck like a sack of potatoes; all surrounded by insults, hitting me swear words, repeating at all times, donít lift your heads. More insults, more beating. Once in a while they open the door, more people detained. They keep insulting us, beating us. Throwing the new people on top of us. They threaten with throwing a tear gas bomb inside. I recall what I lived before, the truck is closed. Time goes by, the guards get on the truck. They keep beating us, with their sticks, with their helmets, with their hands, insulting us with words I would not use. The worst part is the position, I have difficulty breathing, I canít move I have two or three people on top of me; my chest is over a knee. My shoulder against the division of the truck. I try to shout I canít breathe! I am asphyxiating!They tell us to move. They keep beating us insulting us. There is a boot on my shoulder I see it belongs to a guardsman. He presses it. The truck is moving, I think the worst. I start praying. A guard asks: Are you a squalid ?(nickname for the opposition). I say yes I am, if you mean I am against Chavez I am a squalid. He asks what you do? I tell them I am a priest

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Bigwig, you are a Bush Administration plant trying to overthrow the Chavez government. Stop it, you Yanqui Imperialista peeg. President Chavez is a great guy. Besides, he too thinks Kerry would be a better President than Bush, so he's alright in my book...

Oh yeah! Mugabe and Milosevic also will prefer Kerry over Bush, so they are allright in your book, too? Way to go!
