From Oxford To Caracas

In early May of 2002, on a minutes notice, I was asked to be a substitute speaker at St. John's College at Oxford University in Oxford, England for Venezuelan President Jugo Chavez who had a CIA inspired coup to attend to in Caracas.

The topic for the two hour presentation was Human Rights and Abuses There of. Much of the information in this site was presented.

USA intelligence agencies revealed in plot to oust Venezuela's President

by, Venezuela, 12 December 2002

Uruguayan EP-FA congressman Jose Nayardi says he has information that far-reaching plans have been put into operation by the CIA and other North American intelligence agencies to overthrow Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias within the next 72 hours.

Nayardi says he has received copies of top-secret communications between the Bush administration in Washington and the government of Uruguay requesting the latter's cooperation to support white collar executives and trade union activists "to break down levels of intransigence within the Chavez Frias administration."

In an interview with reporters from the Uruguyan newspaper La Juventud, Nayardi says he observes a domestic-political situation in Venezuela which could easily erupt into a civil war and bloodbath . . . "the whole process is a shocking reminder of what happened in Chile in 1973 . . . I sincerely hope it does not come to that!"

Nayardi says he does not foresee any immediate foreign military intervention in the Venezuelan situation but warns of a possible escalation if the opposition gets the upper hand over constitutional law and order.

"The problem is that Venezuelan television and major newspapers have been hiding the true fact that there are huge popular uprisings in support of the Chavez Frias government . . . now that Venezuelans are beginning to understand that they have been duped by the anti-government media, they are demanding that these information channels should begin to tell the truth!"

Book claims
US tried to topple Chavez

Tuesday 22 March 2005 1:41 PM GMT

Chavez was marked for arrest along with other senior officials

Top Venezuelan government officials have attended a ceremony launching a new book that seeks to demonstrate US involvement in the short-lived 2002 coup against President Hugo Chavez.

Vice President Jose Vicente Rangel said during Monday night's ceremony that El Codigo Chavez, by the Venezuelan-American lawyer Eva Golinger, should be "required reading for all Venezuelans".

The book, published in Spanish by Fondo Editorial Question, analyses 4000 US documents obtained through the US Freedom of Information Act.

Golinger, who lives in New York and Caracas, writes that since 2001, the US Agency for International Development and the Washington-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) have "invested more than $20 million to foment conflict and instability in the name of 'promotion of democracy' in Venezuela".

The US government has denied involvement in the coup, and the NED says its programmes are aimed at groups that work to "strengthen democratic processes" irrespective of their political affiliations.


Golinger addressed hundreds who attended the ceremony, saying the US government is waging "a dirty-war campaign" against Chavez's government.

"Here in Venezuela there is a very sophisticated intervention. That's why it's so dangerous," she said.

"Here in Venezuela there is a very sophisticated intervention. That's why it's so dangerous"

Eva Golinger,

The book analyses US documents obtained by Golinger and investigative reporter Jeremy Bigwood that previously have been posted on the website

In one US diplomatic cable cited from late 2001, the businessman Pedro Carmona - who would briefly be named president during the coup - is described as "the right man for the right time in Venezuela."

An intelligence report from 6 April 2002, five days before the coup, referred to "conditions ripening for coup attempt" and said the plan "targets Chavez and 10 other senior officials for arrest."

US officials have said that then-Ambassador Charles Shapiro warned Venezuelan officials about a possible coup before Chavez opponents took control of the government for two days starting 11 April 2002.

Golinger said her research continues into US intervention in Venezuela.

During my presentation at Oxford University in May, 2002, a woman approached me in tears and said that she was from Venezuela and what I had been talking about was actually happening in Caracas at that time.

She was most interested in Appendix III of "The Secret Team" as this portion of the book was the 'hook' by which US intervention in Third World countries was accomplished by the CIA.

Fortunately for Venezuela, this attempt was a failure, so far.
