Dr Webber’s article on the Venezuelan elections appears on therealnews.com, following publication on The Socialist Project website. He writes that the re-election of Hugo Chávez “straightforwardly represents a stinging blow to the domestic right, represented through their candidate Henrique Capriles Radonski, and a setback for the interests of the United States in the region, a region which has – in no small part due to the ascendancy of Chávez, and the oil power he exercises – established a new relative autonomy from its Northern neighbour since the late 1990s.”
