    Thank you for this excellent interview with the inimitable Cindy.

    I was in Venezuela during February 2013 and was impressed by the evident achievements of the Bolivarian revolution that Cindy mentioned. The palpable empowerment of the less wealthy, will not, as you say, be turned back without a struggle.

    I was fortunate to be in Caracas on February Fourth for the 21st anniversary of Hugo’s first address to the nation, now commemorated as a national holiday, the start Bolivarian Revolution. The city was a sea of red, hundreds of thousands of red clad supporters of Commandante Chávez celebrating their independence from the American empire. Many of these people wore T shirts or carried banneres that proclamed: “Yo soy Chávez”, demonstrating why the revolution will outlive its beloved first president.
