Franklin Brito is dead, another crime to condemn Chavez for

Chavez has officially, inescapably, his first un-washable blood on his hands since he is president of Venezuela (he has a lot of un-washable blood from 1992, but that is another story).

Franklin Brito, the courageous farmer willing to die of hunger strike for the law to be applied correctly to his case is finally dead, in the custody of the government military health services, without them, according to twitter, allowing his relatives to claim his body as I type.  Soviet style of disposing of dissidents, call them crazy and sick, inter them, and kill them slowly.

Tal Cual summarizes the hard fight of Franklin Brito for his rights, and how the military goons of the regime took him away into custody at the military hospital of Caracas where in the indifference of the bureaucracy of the regime he died slowly  but surely, never surrendering his will.  her was 49 years old and so strong was his conviction of his right that he even cut himself one of his fingers to draw attention from the regime's bureaucrats.

Accomplices in that murder is the Vice President Elias Jaua when he was INTI chief, and his appointed successor at the INTI Juan Carlos Loyo.  Both will need to answer to justice one day because it was their duty to find a solution and they did not do it because they were too afraid of making Chavez look bad.  Now the three have blood on their hands.

    Your struggle won't be forgotten.

    Justice will be done. One way or another.

    How many more cases like this need to take place in order for those useful idiot like Sean Penn, Oliver Stone etc... to shut up?

    R.I.P. Franklin Brito.

  3. Sean Penn draws attention to himself, to make his actions and what he has in mind visible to everyone. Sometimes, without giving a single thought to, and to the detriment of, a richer inner life and a deeper and wiser reflection. Action and communication are inevitable in his opinion, and he tends to think that the only thing that matters is what is seen!

    This is NOT true, and it is up to him to progress through the development of inner qualities such as meditation, solitude and imagination so as to become stronger.He is weak and superficial.

    In contrast, Franklin Brito drew attention to himself in order to express what was hidden to many people, yet true, and deep.

    RIP Franklin Brito

    Salute to a very strong and brave Venezuelano, standing up for what is right and justice, and paying the ultimate sacrifice.

    If I lived in Venezuela, I would feel obligated to attend his funeral and show solidarity.

    A large turn-out at his funeral would be a large embarrassment to the government. A no-show funeral would demonstrate to the government that the citizens don't care what kind of action it takes against them.

    I encourage all bloggers to spread the word. Looking down from heaven, Mr. Brito would have a huge smile on his face if he saw a massive turn-out at his funeral. Don't let him down.

    Rest In Peace Mr Brito!!

  5. Pathetic. Basically, it was murder. I hope this resonates with Venezuelans, especially the youth, but I'm afraid it won't. Many seem to have other things on their mind.

    And how Chavez praises Evo, an elected head of state, when he starts a hunger strike to manipulate opinion.

    Franklyn, I'm an American, but I will remember your struggle for the rest of my life, as a fellow visitor to this planet. You lived a short life, but you lived it courageously in a peaceful struggle. You died a proud death.

  6. Hola Daniel,

    Thanks for commenting the register of condolence.
    I hope a lot of people will react.
    I will give the blog later to to the family Brito.
    Maybe it will help them if they see that Franklin was also known in other countries.

    Franklin was extreme brave and we may never forget this man
