Marcel Granier speaks at Oslo Freedom Forum 2010
The Assault on Venezuela's Free Press


Marcel Granier, Venezuelan journalist and general manager of the television station RCTV, outlines Hugo Chávez's war against the independent media and the internet. Granier warns that the current attacks against the media are just the beginning of darker days if democratic governments around the world do not take a stand. Granier explains that Venezuelans no longer live in a democracy, and warns that soon all protests will be silenced, political prisoners will become disappeared persons, and Chávez's daunting slogan "Fatherland, Socialism, or Death" will become all too real. The truth must be told, he says, because "freedom of speech is the oxygen of a free society," and without it our humanity is lost.
