Shots at Plaza Francia.

Posted by Ricardo en 16 agosto 2004 20:41

Reports say eight people were wounded by chavista supporters at Plaza Francia, Altamira, eastern Caracas. One of the victims is opposition representative Ernesto Alvarenga. Some people say he got shot at the chest and is in critical condition, while other reports claim the shot hit his shoulder. Same reports say one woman died in the shooting.

OAS/CC back CNE results.

Posted by Ricardo en 16 agosto 2004 17:36

Major observers OAS and Carter Center have just said, in a press conference, their numbers are consistent with those announced by CNE early this morning. They failed to mention the fact that the observers themselves were denied entry to scrutiny room at CNE, as well as representatives from Coordinadora Democrática.

Also this morning Timoteo Zambrano admitted on a radio interview that the so called audits on the voting machines had not been properly done, and that they blindly agreed to go on with the referendum because of the lack of time between the audits and the event. In other words, we might have been robbed, but there’s not much we can do about it. Personally, I believe that if there was a fraud, it was not on the voting machines, but on the scrutiny center. It’s easier to hack only one machine instead of 10,000.

I’m still wondering where are those 5 million NO voters celebrating.

If those are in fact the real results, then democracy wins, but Venezuela loses. May our children forgive us.

Trying to go back to routine. Not that easy.

I’m at work now. Here, one could guess a dear co-worker had died, from the look on everybody’s faces.

On the matter of the results, the opposition is not buying it, and the fact that the Carter Center and OAS have not said anything at this time of the day is pissing me off. Reports say CNE VP Ezequiel Zamora and fellow director Sobella Mejías were not allowed in the add-up room, unbelievable! Also, audits on the results were witnessed only by CNE president Carrasquero and fellow directors Rodriguez and Battaglini, the so called three CNE chavistas.

I wonder why, for Pete’s sake, if you’re winning by a landslide, you keep opposition representatives out of the scrutiny room? It just doesn’t make any sense.

Everybody’s waiting for CC and OAS, ‘cause we’ve learned the type of crooks these CNE clowns are. Those observers also have exit polls, and no leftist philochavista can say they’re biased. If, and only if, they say Chavez won, then indeed we’re doomed.

Now it depends on OAS and Carter Center

Posted by Ricardo en 16 agosto 2004 09:59

CNE president Francisco Carrasquero announced at 4am that the NO option had won with almost five million votes. I don’t buy it, at least not yet. I’ll wait for the main international observers to speak out, even though they were not allowed to observe the add-up process.

Pinch me

Is it real?

I’m getting great news from Coordinadora Democratica here in Valencia. Exit polls say SÍ won with more than 60%, exactly my prediction on Caracas Chronicles.

We’ve nothing official just yet, but all sources tell almost exactly the same numbers.

I’ll call it a day for blogging, but I’ll stay up watching the news. I’ll post again at about 0700hs.

Thanks to all of you for caring about Venezuela on this historical day.

One more pic from Sagrado. My mom and I went there to bring water and snacks to people waiting in line. Military officers were delaying the process, but people hanged in there. I’m very proud of my fellow venezuelans. Posted by Hello
