The pro-Chavez/anti-Chavez style of this discussion does not really help
us understand the processes actually going on in Venezuela.

Here is a more interesting analysis which points to internal weaknesses
of the Bolivarian movement:


    "The 'Bolivarian revolution' has never prioritised the organisation
    of workers. When it comes to popular mobilisation, Chvez's focus
    has been on of the inhabitants of the shanty towns and increasingly
    of rural areas --- where his support in the November 23 elections
    was most solid."
