Since 2002, I formed part of the Venezuelan opposition, attending marches of April 2002 and those of Dec 2002. Signing against Chavez in 2003 during Firmazo and Reafirmazo,participating in the Recall Referendum of 2004 asking the population to vote against Chavez.

Then they left yelling threats against me.

The only ones who would receive benefits in a communist system are the communist president and the members of his government, but the rest of the population only is able to obey whattheir leaders command.

I told them, “no”. He told me I do not want to think that you are against the process of the commander Hugo Chavez Frias as I had received previousinformation about your political activities against a government that is buying your merchandise and if you did not cooperate with this government you would receive a punishment; we have received information that you gave monetary contribution for the opposition candidates, that you gave money for Manuel Rosales’s presidential campaign and Henrique Capriles Radonsky’s governor’s Campaign. But nowyou would have to give your cooperation to Chavez’s government otherwise you would be marked as a traitor and spy of the opposition and we would send you to jail for supporting the enemies of this government.
