CHANGE: In Venezuela, Protest Ranks Grow Broader. “As dawn broke, the residents of a quiet neighborhood here readied for battle. Some piled rocks to be used as projectiles. Others built barricades. A pair of teenagers made firebombs as the adults looked on. These were not your ordinary urban guerrillas. They included a manicurist, a medical supplies saleswoman, a schoolteacher, a businessman and a hardware store worker.” Funny, not long ago all the Chavez shills in the media were telling us that it was just the oligarchs of the “white elite” who opposed Chavez. Now the New York Times is reporting a broad-based revolution.
