Venezuela Rising: Dispatch Five

Subscribe to VICE News for more updates now:

Yesterday in Caracas, Venezuela, thousands of citizens gathered to mark a year since the passing of the country’s late president Hugo Chavez. Despite a breakdown in relations with Panama and a poor turnout of regional leaders at the party, pro-government “Chavistas” were determined to have fun. Meanwhile, across town, protests by anti government activists continued unabated.

  1. What they don't say is that all these people on the streets declaring their love of Chavez and Maduro are forced into such manifestations in exchange for their monthly bag of food, called a CLAP bag; if they don't cheer and look sincerely happy they just won't eat. Socialism has never worked in history: it wrecked Russia, Poland, North Korea, Cuba, Rumania, East Germany, Somalia, Albania, Cambodia and many more; and it will never work, not in Venezuela not anywere.

  2. VENEZUELA PEOPLE DONT FIGHT AGAINST EACH OTHER!
    FIGHT THE UISRAEL GOVERNMENT AND THE NWO SOLDADOS!
    THE GOVERNMENT OF ROTHSCHILD, ROCKEFELLER, FREE MASON BITCHES WANNA KILL YOU!
    BE FASTER AS THEM BITCHES!
    FIGHT THE NEW WORLD ORDER AGENDA!

  3. Che had always said coups don't work… This is evidence enough. No real revolution can happen without a ton of blood being spilled–there are many reasons for this. When a vast amount of people die in revolutions, the people begin to understand the consequences of poor leadership and they begin to understand that no real social-reform can happen without a resilient struggle.

    Those middle-class children walking around in adult bodies screaming "We don't want a dictatorship such as in Cuba", are extremely ignorant. Cuba has stability, and has even survived long enough on its own to over-come the embargo that the United States has recently demolished/abolished.

    Your "Democracy" is tearing itself down, from within, just like in Greece you petty bourgeoisie spoiled brats.

    Study your history people: it might mean your life, it might mean your children's. Don't end up like the parents of dead children in Ukraine screaming "I never thought this could happen", just because they were too ignorant to realize that there's no limit to what some will do for power.

  4. Un pueblo que tiene un presidente al que le habla un ¨Pajarito¨ y lo vitorean así, no se que pueda aprender sobre dignidad y libertad. Saludos al otro pueblo Venezolano que lucha por su patria libre del fantasma Castrista.

  5. That riot police officer negotiating with the protesters was recently killed by a gunman trying to steal the officer's gun. His name was Pedro Arismendi, he repressed lot of times the protests against crime in Caracas, and now himself got killed because of the high crime rates of the country.

  6. Yeah theyre protesting because they want to keep their pools n shit.. Couldn't possibly be the fact that the murder rate more than doubled after Chavez took power, it's higher than fucking Iraq for fucks sake!!  I remember before 99 this use to be a place people went for vacation, no look at it.. Im no fan of American politics but Chavez was a fucking idiot who ran Venezuela into the ground.

  7. eso es pura mierda, estamos es en un infierno 
    estas feliz sera tu mmg salir todo los dias mueren mas venezolano x eso vamos a estar muy feliz ? algo q te pagan por ser madurista es otra cosas. espero q abras los ojos antes q no este tu FAMILIA O AMIGOS se mueran o pase algo.
    soy un niño q tienes 16 años estudio y q no tiene casa solo por apoyar lo q creo q esta correcto x eso no tengo casa y tampoco algo a la calle.
    VENEZUELA MATA A SUS PROPIOS HERMANOS " si todo esta bn aquí" solo q los matamos y ps no tenemos derecho a nada solo lo q dice el gobierno.
    VENEZUELA SOS TU Y YO, TODOS SOMOS VENEZUELA

  8. Thank you for all the coverage of the protests in Venezuela! I would love VICE to continue covering all the news from Venezuela, since we don't have any free media of our own.

  9. You want to know why hey says that Chavistas are the majority in Venezuela? BECAUSE there is no 1 single proof that there was electoral fraud.  Venezuelan "Left Wing" politician Pablo Medina said that the main reason of Hugo Chavez victory was that he made a phone call to Capriles Radonski threatening him on october 7. That's the kind of argument that some people use to say that Chavez and Maduros Goverment are not legitimate Goverments.
