Venezuela coup linked to Bush team

(21. April 2002)

The Bush administration has tried to distance itself from the coup. It immediately endorsed the new government under businessman Pedro Carmona. But the coup was sent dramatically into reverse after 48 hours.

Now officials at the Organisation of American States and other diplomatic sources, talking to The Observer, assert that the US administration was not only aware the coup was about to take place, but had sanctioned it, presuming it to be destined for success.

2002 Venezuelan coup d’état attempt

The Venezuelan coup d’état attempt of 2002 was a failed coup d’état on 11 April 2002 that saw President Hugo Chávez ousted from office for 47 hours before being restored to power. Chávez, who had been elected in 2000, was aided in his return to power by overwhelming popular support and mobilization against the coup and assistance of loyalists in the military.[8][unreliable source?]

The situation began on 9 April, when a general strike was called by the trade union organization „National Federation of Trade Unions“, Confederación de Trabajadores de Venezuela (CTV). The proposed strike was in response to Chávez’s appointments to prominent posts in Venezuela’s national oil company, PDVSA.[9] Two days later in Caracas, up to one million Venezuelans marched in opposition to Chávez.[10][11] At one point during the march, opposition leaders redirected the protestors to the presidential palace, Miraflores, where government supporters and Bolivarian Circles were holding their own rally. Upon the opposition’s arrival, the two sides confronted each other. Gunshots rang out, and by that evening 19 people were dead, including both supporters and opponents of the government.[6] Then, the military high command started the coup at Miraflores and demanded that Chávez resign. President Chávez refused to resign, and he subsequently was arrested by the military.[12][13][14] Chávez’s request for asylum in Cuba was denied, and he was ordered to be tried in a Venezuelan court.[9]

Venezuela stabilisiert nach Sanktionen Erdölexporte

Dafür sind die Exporte in Richtung Asien nach wie vor konstant. Im März ging die größte Menge venezolanischen Erdöls nach Indien, China und Singapur. Der Anteil dieser drei Länder an der Gesamtmenge machte im März 74 Prozent aus. Exporte nach Europa fielen von 22 Prozent im Februar auf 17 Prozent. Auch nach Kuba wurden noch etwa 65.000 Barrel durch die PDVSA verschifft.
