Venezuela’s democracy is still intact: Weisbrot

Weisbrot briefly explains here that Venezuela’s democracy is still intact.  The constitutional changes that Chavez has proposed will not bring less democracy to Venezuela as Brazil’s President has also stressed.  As Weisbrot points out though, western media journalists are unlikely to recognize anything good coming out of Venezuela.  Please read the article here:

An excerpt:

“The biggest fuss this time seems to be the amendment that would abolish term limits for the presidency.”

“Perhaps it is because I am from Chicago, and had only one mayor from the time I was born until I graduated college, that I am unable to see this as the making of a dictatorship.”
