Rakesh evokes Kronstadt, Bolshevism, etc.

         In his Kronstadt/Bolshevism note, Rakesh says:
1. 'Chavez called on the National Guard to shoot
at the strikers.'
2.'Gindin hoped that Chavez would express support for workers short of
>nationalization. Chavez seems only to have had them shot at.'
3. 'So Chavez had them shot at to make the union stronger?'

         3 times. Must be true. Does Rakesh have any evidence that Chavez
called in the National Guard (and called on them to shoot at the workers!)?
