Chavez threatens democracy, Venezuelan prelate charges
Catholic World News - August 06, 2009
Archbishop Baltazar Porras of Merida, the vice-president of the Venezuelan bishops' conference, has charged that President Hugo Chavez is aiming to "turn the country into a society that has only one ruler, one entity who has all the right and all the obligations and gives the leftovers to the citizens." The archbishop's criticism-- the latest in a long line of protests by the Venezuelan hierarchy against Chavez power grabs-- came after 24 radio stations were closed down.
