Venezuelan Embassy warning about the media campaign to not recognise the results of the April 14 presidential elections
Statement by Embassy of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela in Australia
In order to advise, truthfully, the reality of what occurred in Venezuela after presidential elections held on 14 April, in which the president Nicolás Maduro won with 50.78% of votes, and to avoid any more “media misunderstandings” that are the result of the non-recognition of the results by the former candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski, a loser in this electoral process, this Embassy responsibly seeks to inform that:

As the Venezuelan opposition is emboldened by chaos on the streets, reactionary propaganda on the private airwaves that still dominate Venezuela's media landscape and firm support from Washington, now is the time for the international left to galvanise support for the Bolivarian revolution.
End the opposition violence! Respect the democratic process!
No US-backed intervention in Venezuela!

Statement from the Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network
The Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network joins with all those voices for democracy and peace to call for an immediate end to the opposition-initiated violence now occurring in Venezuela.
Solidarity with the Bolivarian revolution:
Viva Chavez – Hasta la Victoria Siempre
Not since the murder of Ernesto Che Guevara has the death of a revolutionary fighter had such an impact on the world. Hugo Chavez, who has been at the head of the Bolivarian revolution since 1998, elected five times by the people of Venezuela as its President, is an example of what is needed to combat the brutality of capitalism.

Following the death of President Hugo Chavez yesterday hundreds of thousands of Venezuelans have gone into the streets in mourning. Beyond Venezuela, many Latin American countries have also declared three days of mourning.
Venezuelan in mourning
Last night, from around 6pm till well after midnight, huge crowds of people gathered in all the main plazas of cities and towns to rally, mourn, pray, and sing. Otherwise the streets were quiet.
Revolutionary movements invariably produce great leaders. The name Hugo Chavez stands among these.
Statement from the Socialist Alliance
The Socialist Alliance in Australia expresses its deepest sympathies with the people and government of Venezuela on the death of Companero Hugo Chavez Frias on March 5. His passing is a huge loss for all peoples, across Latin America and the globe, struggling for a world free of inequality, exploitation and oppression.
By Ryan Mallett-Outtrim
Venezuelans went to the polls for the second time this year on December 16, and delivered another overwhelming victory to President Hugo Chavez’s United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).
Chavez is leading a process of social change, known as the Bolivarian revolution, that has halved poverty in the oil-rich nation and promoted participatory democracy.
After presidential elections returned Chavez with more than 55% of the vote, the PSUV increased its majority of state governorships and legislatures.
