Venezuela's Opposition "Reafirmazo" a huge success

The opposition began today gathering the signatures in the event called the "Reafirmazo" to have a recall referendum against President Hugo Chavez. From early in the morning huge lines have formed in all areas of Caracas and the country. In contrast to last week's petition drive by the pro-Chavez forces, where polling stations were mostly empty, today most polling stations had lines of more than two blocks. Compare last week's pictures, with those I placed today in my web page. The atmosphere is festive, there have been a few incidents but so far it has been quite peaceful.
