[liberationtech] In Venezuela, claims of censorship on Twitter

Just want to point out this little tidbit. The rebellion: _"...was
launched 10 days ago by students who have received backing from some of
the country's fractured opposition groups"_
<http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2014/02/police-fire-tear-gas-at-anti-maduro-protest-201421524551175247.html>
AKA the oligarchy that was continually trying to assassinate or
otherwise depose Hugo Chavez, undo what social gains he managed to
accomplish. I don't consider the "Anons" whining about pastebin to be
anything more than Useful Idiot trolls for the oligarchy and US
government policy. I don't consider what's occuring in regard to
blocking Pastebin or Twitter censorship but an attempt to derail a
destabilization disinformation operation in the interest of a foreign
power. A power that IS NOT a liberating force in Venezuelan society now,
or at any point in modern  history.
