“It is quite common to hear high officials in Washington and elsewhere speak of changing the map of the Middle East, as if ancient societies and myriad peoples can be shaken up like so many peanuts in a jar.”

― Edward W. Said

"A developing country that wants to develop its economy must first of all keep natural resources in its own hands."

Hugo Chavez (1954-2013)

Dear all,

I collected some articles on Hugo Chavez and his legacy. You will find them below. If you come across an article related with him and his legacy, please email them to me, I will post them here.  

I have said it already, I am convinced that the way to build a new and better world is not capitalism. Capitalism leads us straight to hell.
  I hereby accuse the North American empire of being the biggest menace to our planet.
