Chavez deserves a warm welcome

Here's a superb piece from today's First Post by Simon Hooper on Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan leader currently visiting Britain. Chavez has been the victim of several nasty attacks by pro-Empire propaganda outlets (one allegedly 'progressive' blog springs particularly to mind) which say far more about the attackers than they do about Chavez.

And here's a brilliant piece by John Pilger, from Saturday's Guardian on why Chavez is such a threat to the most powerful people on this planet.

ps there's a truly appalling comment piece on Chavez in today's Daily Mail by a writer called Jonathan Norman. The only thing he doesn't accuse Chavez of is global warming. Give it time.......
