The Revolution Will Not be Televised (2002) - Hugo Chavez's Venezuela

This is a followup to the John Perkins's Iceland interview. There is a revolution going on in Latin America. Let's delve deeper and take a look at what happened in Venezuela with Hugo Chavez and their Bolivarian Revolution, wherein, they threw out the IMF, World bank, and the foreign corporations.

You want a revolution? Watch this video and see who will be standing in your way (hint: it'll be those, both domestic and foreign, who are exploiting the country's resources). See what strategy and tactics the other side uses and how to overcome them.

Quick description of the film:
The Revolution Will Not Be Televised is a 2002 documentary about the April 2002 Venezuelan coup attempt which briefly deposed Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.

A television crew from Ireland's Radio Telifís Éireann happened to be recording a documentary about Chávez during the events of April 11, 2002. Shifting focus, they followed the events as they occurred. During their filming, the crew recorded images of the events that they say contradict explanations given by Chávez opposition, the private media, the US State Department, and then White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer. The documentary says that the coup was the result of a conspiracy between various old guard and anti-Chávez factions within Venezuela and the United States.
