Dramatic events are unfolding in Venezuela. Although the nationalisation of Venepal in itself it does not yet mean a qualitative change in the class nature of the Venezuelan Revolution, this bold measure certainly signifies a step in the right direction. It indicates that the working class is intervening in the Revolution with increasing determination, pressing for its independent class interests, demanding a break with capitalism and pushing the Revolution forwards.

“I am convinced that the path to a new, better and possible world is not capitalism, the path is socialism”. With this clear statement on his weekly TV programme “Alo Presidente,” Chavez reaffirmed his point of view that socialism is the only way forward to solve the problems of inequality, misery and poverty that millions face in Venezuela and the world today.

Current U.S. ambassador to Iraq John Negroponte has been nominated by President Bush to be chief advisor and the first National Intelligence Director, with authority over 15 formerly independent intelligence agencies. So just who is John Negroponte?

The Chavez Code by Eva Golinger cracks the code of intervention of the United States in Venezuela. Eva Golinger is a Venezuelan-American attorney. In 2003 she began to investigate the interference of the United States in the coup d'etat of April 2002 against President Chávez and brought to light the more than 20 million dollars invested by the American government to finance anti-Chavez groups. In October 2004, she obtained top secret documents, declassified under the Freedom of Information Act, that demonstrate the U.S. government's prior knowledge of and complicity in the coup. Cuban magazine Juventud Rebelde published extracts of the book on March 6 ("The Chavez Code" by Eva Golinger) and then, on March 13 a review by Rosa Miriam Elizalde and Rogelio Polanco (Deciphering the Code of US Lies on Chavez).
