Like most of the world knows, Maduro has won the election as the new president of Venezuela. Supported by the power of Chávez by all the latest years, Maduro has the opportunity to keep going with the “Chavezsm” way of manage the country.
What I put in discussion is not if Maduro is the best or worst person to Venezuela, but what the consequences of the “Chavezsm” to the freedom of press. Unfortunately, in South America, free press is not a consensus in all countries of the mainland.
People in Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia, Argentina, etc are victims of politics that restrict media on their countries. So, is it fair with all these citizens?!
In Brazil, recently, we had the Freedom Forum in Porto Alegre that was debating “what we see and don’t see”, issues such as, education, free press, consequences of insecurity, public spending and the lack of infrastructure in our countries. Only to have an example that this kind of things happen, in Cuba, people have to take care of what they publish on their blogs.
I watched by streaming (on the Forum) Julio Saguier, president of La Nacion newspaper in Argentina, talking about the problems they have on advertising and about the content that the newspaper publish because of the government limits.
But why talk about it all? Because I just wanna keep writing here and would really love that everybody could do the same as me without anyone telling me what I can or can’t say to the world.
