Anti-Chavez Demonstrations

Demonstrations today against Castro wannabe Hugo Chavez turned into violent skirmishes between supporters and opponents of the Venezuelan president.

It went something like this: Opponents, fearful that Chavez's stacking of the election committee and courts means he will continue to move the country towards a Cuban style communist state, demonstrated for reforms before the next election.

Supporters started throwing rocks and beating with sticks.

Cops stood by.

Chavez is a thug with a lot of power accumulated around him, so the opposition has a long way to go; probably too far.
