Media: Victory by the Venezuelan opposition would lead to a fierce dictatorship
“We young people are responsible for preventing the right-wing from coming to power as they are going to establish the fiercest dictatorship Latin America has ever seen,” Suarez said. Suarez is a member of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (Spanish: Partido Socialista Unido de Venezuela) founded by Hugo Chávez.
It is extremely important that in his statement made in this critical situation Suarez appeals to the Venezuelan civil society, in particular to the youth. To some extent, Hugo Chávez pulled the country out from a situation when an absolute minority lived lavishly using oil money while an absolute majority lived in poverty. Part of the youth received housing, employment, and thus the right to a future. This is the real social support base of the “chavists”; in contrast, the right-wing activists have never shared anything with the people, nor will they if they manage to defeat President Maduro. What the “chavists” urgently need to do is to expose the manipulation of public opinion by the pro-American opposition as part of this plan. Taking the lead in the information war, along with the commitment demonstrated by Maduro when he used tanks in the streets of Caracas, is where their real chance lies.
