Opposition in Venezuela Use Cell Phones, Text Messaging and YouTubeTo Counter Chavez

Revolutionary tools of global communication are now being used by protestors to oppose Victor Chavez in Venezuela and may make his tyrannical attempts to capture the heart and soul of freedom there much harder to accomplish.

How protesters are using text messaging and cell phones to oppose Chavez's move to take over Venezuelan media.

And how RCTV continues to broadcast its message on YouTube in spite of being closed down him last weekend.

Times are a-changing for would be dictators and mass murderers.
What with all these new ways for ordinary people to communicate, it's just not as easy as it used to be to take over a country and subjugate its people. The jury is still out, but Chavez, the man who would be Fidel, just may have bitten off more than he can chew this time.
And so may have Iranian president Ahmadinejad.

Aint it great?!?!
I do not think he will capitulate, but I do think that many of the international community are finally having to acknowledge he is a ruthless dictator.

Agreed. At least the ways of wicked men are now more transparent to the world as they happen than they used to be. Think of how long it took to dawn on the world what Hitler was doing to the Jews in Germany.

But today we see the drama unfolding, as it happens, and surely there is some benefit to that. Only time will tell.

Hope you are well.

My prayers are certainly with the protestors. My heart hurts for the many who are "trapped" and "stuck" there in Ven.

I hope you are right about both Chavez and the little punk in Iran.
