Tell Chávez:  Demand Freedom for Venezuela's Political Prisoners



Well I'm back from my summer vacation and it's time to get back to blogging.  I've got several things I have been watching and which I intend to address over the upcoming week; especially some recent events in Bolivia.  But for now, let me just respond to a "heads up" I've been given from a recent visitor to another of my posts here and put up this bit of useful information.

TellChá is a new website that has opened to publicize awareness of the repeated human rights violations in Venezuela and, much like many of the sites and organizations who are supporting recognition of the rights of Cuban political prisoners, they are calling for the same for those Chavez now holds in Venezuela's jails.

They have a letter posted which you can sign -- as I did -- which will be sent and they are attempting to raise public awareness as well.  I wish them success and I am inviting them to keep me informed.
