Central University of Venezuela has been the target of 24 violent attacks over the past three years

Between 2009 and November 16, 2011; university authorities of the Central University of Venezuela have denounced at the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency (known for its acronym, Cicpc) and the Attorney General Office, 24 case files of attacks and aggressions against the university, students and authorities. From all of them, only the murder of student Pedro Trejo was investigated and solved in court .

In the rest of the case files, the Cicpc answered to the call of the authorities and held an inquest, but none of them offered a plain result which revealed the perpetrators of the attacks.

Out of the 24 violent events recorded at the UCV, on 11 occasions there were shots fired by the attackers who made use of firearms such as FAL riffles, submachine guns and 9 mm pistols. Some of those actions were recorded on the security cameras of the UCV. On seven occasions, attackers made use of tear gas against university authorities, workers and students. On 11 occasions, vehicles from authorities and student representatives were burned. Seven arson attacks were perpetrated in school facilities of the campus, especially against the President's Office and the FCU (student union). Hand-thrown explosives were used in 13 attacks and most of them have been aimed to the President's Office of the UCV, to be more accurate: 10 violent attempts in total.


Pro-government groups

At least four pro-government groups operate at the UCV. The most well-known is M-28, a group that arose out of the raid on the University Council in March 2011 and stood out because of the violence perpetrated by this group and the indiscriminate use of tear gas, which use - as everyone knows - is limited only to security bodies. On that opportunity, full support was thrown behind them by President Hugo Chávez's Administration.

1. The hard right wing within the chavismo

"A very remarkable action happened on May 22, when a group of hooded men making use of firearms stormed into the Faculty of Political and Legal Sciences. The hooded men entered the school shooting and hurling tear gas canisters, spreading panic among students.

A complaint was filed at the higher public prosecutor's office by Doris Márquez and recorded under the number 531-2009. Although videos were presented and bullets were collected in the area by Cicpc officials, the public prosecutor's office never provided answers on the authors of the violent attacks."


"Interestingly, none of these factors have counted on the student support and the very government has shown concern over the limited successes they have attained in comparison to democratic organizations. For instance, in the recent elections Patria y Universidad ("fatherland and university", chavista group in the UCV) just obtained a small proportion of 500 votes compared to the winner with more than 11,780 votes (non chavista)."


Look at the 4 year old kid dressed as a commando, how cute eh? A real soldier for the fatherland... so spontaneous and all! He knows the 6 names of Bolivar when he's beginning his kindergarten. "Progressive" revolution.

But, all in all, not as cute as this 5 year old one. She's speaks as a teacher!

She even says in her cute military uniform: "Salutations to you, my Commander... you can count on me as a reservist . I'll be with you hasta la victoria siempre!". Incredibly mature for her age, I mean she's not even in 1st grade and she already commits herself and her life to the revolutionary process for chrissake! "Progressive" man's dream.

Our country is really becoming an EXAMPLE!!! We can be really proud of our commando kids! Exactly what we need for our social development..
