London's mayor backpedals

By

Aleksander Boyd is a Venezuelan and the proprietor of Vcrisis, a website which opposes the left wing Hugo Chavez. I am proud that he has been a great friend of our site, a sentiment which we fully reciprocate. We have long admired his steadfast bravery in the face of intimidation, and his insight on the cruel nature of the Marxist regime being imposed on his people. From the comparative safety of London, Alek has carried on the struggle against a regime going in the direction of Cuba.

When Hugo Chavez visited London recently and met with the leftist mayor "Red Ken" Livingstone, Alek confronted the mayor at a news conference, and was branded a supporter of terrorism for his trouble. Because British libel laws are rather strict, Alex has brought legal action against the mayor.

I urge readers to learn about this action by reading the latest of many posts Alek has written on the case. Although I am no expert in British law, it appears to me that both sides now realize Alek has a great case.

The drive—by media has not yet been forced to take up the subject, but as the case moves forward, with the potential for embarrassing a left wing icon, that may change. In the meantime, the information is available to those who know where to look.

Viva Alek!
