Venezuela + Press Freedom + Forum

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.

Independently of political issues, Chávez died yesterday with the majority of Venezuela nation applauding him. There’s a global commotion… Chávez was trying to fight for life even after months, but his body couldn’t got better. Today, Venezuelans and world say good-bye to a polemic leader. #RIP Chávez


Yesterday, in Brazil, also died a public person, a rock star of 42 years old. “Chorão”, as he is called, was found dead in his apartment this morning. People don’t know exactly why he is gone, but police suspects of drugs and depression. Unfortunately, rock in Brazil lose a great guy with a huge speech in his songs talking about the importance of family, friends and great/common times that we have in life. Well, to say good-bye, I share a song of his band. Music is what stays #RIP 1970-2013
