The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Venezuela has reopened a pedestrian border crossing into Colombia from San Antonio del Tachira, in the western state of Tachira.

On Sunday, January 10, Venezuelan Vice President Aristóbulo Istúriz noted that Social Mission Bases are vital to combating poverty through their educational, health and food programs. “As in times of war, bases are used as storage centers, strategic battle and technical hubs. In regards to society, we must tackle poverty and need large storage and organizational centers, where the people’s strength is concentrated in the fight against poverty,” he stated, quoting the leader of the Bolivarian Revolution, Hugo Chávez.
The fate of a social revolution which has lasted 17 years, against the tide of the universal capitalist model and in resistance to foreign contempt and the boycott from the enemy within, hangs in the balance. Its immediate future will be decided by the balance of power resulting from the recent elections, which will signal either continuity or reversal.
I share the unanimous opinion of those who have congratulated you for your brilliant, valiant speech on the night of December 6, as soon as the election’s outcome was announced. In world history, the highest level of political glory which a revolutionary can reach, is that of the illustrious Venezuelan combatant, Liberator of America, Simón Bolívar, whose name now belongs not only to this sister country, but to all peoples of Latin America.
