Hugo Chavez Documentary – The Background to Today’s Situation in Venezuela


The late 1980s, Venezuela was impoverished by a corrupt government that had sold out to the IMF, the people were literally starving and by 1989, they could take it no more, there was an eruption of violence born of sheer desperation. The paramilitary police forces put done the nascent uprising with murderous force, but the winds of change were blowing and 3 years later, a man came, as if from out of nowhere, to topple the corrupt government and end the nation’s long period of being raped and abused by the big global banks, that man was Hugo Chavez, at the time a lowly colonel commanding a unit of paratroopers and completely unknown to the people of Venezuela or the rest of the world.

Chavez was the real deal, a true patriot, a true socialist revolutionary, unlike so many other supposed national heroes that rose to power elsewhere, such as Castro and Gadaffi, Chavez was not a creation and puppet of the CIA. That is why his regime was so bitterly opposed and why he had to be killed, he survived multiple attempts on his life and at least one coup attempt, but finally, he was felled by a particularly aggressive cancer that literally ate him alive in just two short years, no doubt this was a weaponised form of the disease created by the CIA.

With Chavez gone, the CIA must have expected Venezuela to fall into their grasp, as so many other nations had before, but Chavez’s appointed successor Maduro, proved to be almost as tough and smart as Chavez had proved to be. It is only after many years of being starved and impoverished by the global banking crime cabal that the Venezuelan people are finally weakening in their support for Maduro and the Chavez socialist movement that freed the nation from the grasp of the banks and intelligence agencies.

The documentary below gives a good insight into how Venezuela came to be where it is today, it doesn’t enough of course, that wouldn’t be , but it provides a good starting point to learning about the subject at least.
