Juan Cristobal says: – Something very strange happened today. As far as we know, for the first time in five years, Chavez spoke with a member of the opposition.
Apparently, UNT leader Stalin Gonzalez was in a meeting with Primero Justicia’s Juan Carlos Caldera and Interior Minister Tareck Al Aissami, when Chavez called. The president spoke to Gonzalez briefly regarding tomorrow’s scheduled march.
Signs that the government is softening up? Perhaps the government thinks that its tough stance is not working? Is Stalin a closet communist? Or is simply the unfortunate result of a llamada ligada?
You be the judge.
