Tal Cual: A Polemic Venezuelan Leader
It seems right to us the calling for peace and the respect for the citizen, as much for those who saw in Hugo Chávez a role model to follow, as for those who constantly confronted him like we did. Death always puts the avatars and passions of our lives in a strange place, far from the hubbub of the days that reminds us the frailty as well as the tense and paradoxical drama of the human effort.

By Tal Cual

President Hugo Chávez passed away on Tuesday afternoon, after going through an enormous suffering as a result of a relentless disease, against which he fought all the way. We, notwithstanding, totally and radically opposed his government.

But in this dark hour we would like to offer our condolences to his family, collaborators, friends and those millions of Venezuelans who politically followed him and also felt a very uncommon intense affection for the leader.

Death always puts the avatars and passions of our lives in a strange place, far from the hubbub of the days that reminds us the frailty as well as the tense and paradoxical drama of the human effort.

The way Vice-President Nicolás Maduro addressed the country, minutes after Hugo Chávez’s passing, seems right to us for his calling for peace and respect for the citizen, as much for those who saw in Hugo Chávez a role model to follow, as for those who constantly confronted him like we did. Such an attitude is the only about right in this terrible moment, always aiming for a better future of the nation.
