vale senor chavez

The death of president chavez made me think back to the excellent documentary 'the revolution will not be televised' about a US backed coup attempt to 'retire' him. Irish filmmakers Kim Bartley and Donnacha Ó Briain were months into filming a documentary about Bolivar II when the coup happened. They were in the right place at the right time to tell a remarkable story and they do a great job. shame they weren't around in honduras too. Also see an interesting piece on Chavez and Chomsky here. Tariq Ali's thoughts here.
