Have to be off Facebook most of day to finish article for Pakistan Today on Venezuela. Just as in Syria & in all of the Arab Spring uprisings, Stalinists & libertarians denounce the protests as rightwing protesters orchestrated by US operatives to implement regime change. The primary source of this position is Telesur which is owned by the Venezuelan & other Latin American governments & based in Caracas.

It’s unspeakable that those fighting for social transformation are vilified as rightwing stooges & agents of the US. That’s how low the left has fallen. From such ashes we await the rising of a new phoenix.
