About Ledezma and his hunger strike

In Venezuela (or when its about Chavez' Venezuela), to demand some respect for your most basic rights and to caught a bit of the -hypocrite- international community, you must lead a hunger strike for six days and end up like the picture on the right. If you do not believe me, ask Ledezma: Caracas' major, choosen by his voters in a democratic process but with the bad luck of belonging to an opposition party. To be a major from an opposition party has a very high cost: the president can take you off some of your competences and even invent a new charge and name a person to rule the city that pick you up in the first place, over you.

  1. Do you exactly know who Ledezma really is and his role during El Caracazo? You know i may not be a Venezuelan but i have a master degree and i worked on Chavez and Venezuelan politics. During Caracazo, unofficially, nearly 3000 people were killed and they were screaming this: "Ledezma motherf*cker, people die of hunger", I saw it from a video. And you believe him? You know i dont want to accuse you but i think you should be thankful for a president like Chavez, yes maybe his social reforms were unsuccessful but he tried, and that's something right? Until his presidency common people never saw a dime from PDVSA, but now Chavez tries right? I dont know, i live in Turkiye and I would give everything for a president like Chavez.
