A Nation Mourns

by Stephen Lendman

Bolivarianism is institutionalized.

Venezuelans mourn their great loss. Visceral grief pervades the country. Chavez gave so much to so many. He cared. He showed it. He made a difference. He accomplished so much in 14 years.

The torch passes. On Friday, Nicolas Maduro was sworn in. He's acting president. New elections will follow in about 30 days. Maduro vowed to continue what Chavez began.

"I swear," he said, "in the absolute loyalty to the Commandante Hugo Chavez that we will obey and defend this Bolivarian Constitution with the hard hand of a people willing to be free. I swear."

"There you are, undefeated, pure, transparent, unique, true, alive forever." His voice cracked saying so.

"Mission accomplished comandante," he added! "The struggle goes on." It's vital. Chavez said "Time is short. If we do not change the world now, there may not be a 22nd century." Millions agree.

Chavez honored the "heroic memory of our peoples, of Guaicaipuro, our liberators, the largest of which (were) Simon BolĂ­var, Ezequiel Zamora and his ragged army."
