The Revolution Will Not Be Televised

The Revolution Will Not Be Televised (a.k.a. Chavez: Inside the Coup) 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.

    • the evidence speaks for itself, it was a coup ochastrated by the C.I.A, with the sole porpuse of returning Venezuelan oil back into the hands of America and its corporate interests.
      Same tactics that where used to oust Mossadegh in Iran in 1954, only this time the coup failed due to the mass scale protests of the people ,the majority who have suffered in extreme poverty for 80 years even though their country has been one of the biggest oil exporters in the world.
