Capriles First real life test

Tomorrow the opposition unity candidate makes his first mass meeting. The occasion is his official signing up as a presidential candidate. Chavez will try to do one best on Monday but that is another story.

The fact of the matter is that the Unidad has planned a massive march/rally starting from different points of the city.  We will see how successful has been Capriles campaign at motivating people.  I will attend part of the event only because of family matters, but that part I will tweet it live with pictures as needed.  See you tomorrow at @danielduquenal

    Daniel, I read this the other day and I think it's ineresting

    It's about a system implemented in mexico to record irregularities during the campaing and election. with smartphones people can upload media and post irregularities and with the gps, they are geotagged, so you know what, were, when it happened and with evidence tu support it :)

    They set it up in about 3 days with an estimated budget of 5K USD

    If you happen to know someone who can do something about this, at least study it, please share :)

    I hope this can be implemented and USED and prove advantageous :)

    If Chavez plans on having a competing rally on the same day in the same city, it is a recipe for some serious violence.

    May the opposition find its strength and its resolve - come rain or come shine, come hell or high waters.

    good luck!

    We interupt this blog to provide an important announcement:

    Not having access to Venezuelan television I was waiting for word as to what had happened in Caracas today. This just came over the wire from Reuters:

    According to Reuters the Capriles campaign filled Caracas with "hundreds of thousands of supporters." Wow. Double wow.

    it was crowded, but numbers ....

    Venevision tried to play it down, it was anyhow organized by the CIA, Mossad , MI6 etc...
    They showed pictures from a helicopter of nearly empty streets saying nobody came to participate. But the masses of busses in the streets showed their lies .... there was also information that busses from Maracaibo where hold back by the GN
