Are things getting out of hand in Venezuela?

After the decision by the Consejo Nacional Electoral (CNE) on Wednesday to question 1.4 million signatures of the petition for Hugo Chavez' recall on a technicality, the political tension has increased to new levels in Venezuela. On Friday, the Government used excessive force in repressing an opposition march that wanted to hand in a document to the G-15 summit meeting in Caracas.

Today, there are clashes everywhere in Caracas and other cities in the country between the National Guard and opposition groups as the Electoral Board decided on a way for people to attempt to "repair" their signature, if it was placed under observation. President Chavez gave a speech in a rally this afternoon, attacking the US and threatening with cutting off oil supplies to that country.

Some political activists have been jailed, included a Deputy from the Radical Cause party, despite having immunity according to the Constitution.
