There is no brutal repression going on here… please move along

According to Hugo Chavez, Venezuela's simian prince, there is no torture or brutal repression being carried out by state security forces against the student protests that have been going on in Venezuela for the past week.

Venezuela’s Chavez Denies Protesters Were Tortured

CARACAS – President Hugo Chavez denied on Friday that students mounting anti-government protests this week in Caracas and other Venezuelan cities have been subject to torture or “brutal repression.”

Demonstrators have been confronted by Venezuela’s militarized police, the Guardia Nacional, as well as by Chavez supporters, two of whom were fatally shot Monday in the western city of Merida.

The pictures below, however, tell a different story.

That brings us to the oft asked question: Who are you going to believe? The chimp that would be king, or your own lying eyes?

Update: Instapundit link. Thanks! Just like the oppressed bloggers in Cuba, public exposure is the only protection these protesters have against government brutality, please help spread the word however you can.

There's more coverage with lots of photos of the goings on in Venezuela this past week at The Real Cuba.
