Read complete report at: Jungle mom says;
I have just read the leaked report of the upcoming constitutional changes being planned by this regime. The president has been quietly working on this since his re-election. ( I am using the English translation from Daniel's blog. please go over and reead it for yourself in it's entirety!)
I read some of this in Spanish yesterday and is partly responsible for my depression I was expressing last night. I found it available in English at the above site this morning. I did not have the time and energy to translate it myself. Read it and weep.
No more private property besides your personal belongings.
The air borne media will have rights to emit only if they serve educative purpose. The state decides which are the educative goals.
The autonomy of Universities is done with. The state will be deciding which careers should be offered and which is the right curriculum to follow.
Decentralization will be done with.
Jungle Mom says; of course there is also the means for unlimited re-election. Also, I had heard rumors of the threat to eliminate DUAL CITIZENSHIP. And it is suggested that the government do so because so many people with dual citizenship tend to be opposition. This effects us as we have children of dual citizenship.

Added later: meanwhile I got a copy of the International Bar Association report on Venezuela, but in Spanish only (some one can get me the English link?). The report is dire and certainly does not allay the fears raised by the constitutional changes (which the report also addresses, in particular the scandalous secretive nature of the discussion!). When I have more time I will post on this report that documents clearly how Venezuelan liberties have been consistently maimed by the current regime.
