Rest In Peace President Hugo Chavez 1954-2013

This website is proud to have published many positive stories about the late Venezuelan President since this website was set up seven years ago, unlike his big media enemies.

In May 2006, The-Latest's editor Marc Wadsworth had the privilege of meeting Hugo Chávez on his whirl-wind visit to London, and was hugely impressed by the energy, commitment and dedication of Chavez and the ministers who accompanied him.

They were mobbed by adoring crowds - people proud, like us, of the brave stance the Bolivarian revolutionaries had taken for socialism and against American-led imperialism. The passing of Chavez, aged 58, on Tuesday is a sad day for the struggle of the oppressed against their oppressor, for he was their global champion. Rest in peace President Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías.
