Gabriela Montero, pianista que fez as cabeças de todos nós com seus improvisos na Sala São Paulo em 2007 – e que volta na temporada 2013 do Cultura Artística – é, no meio artístico, uma das dissidentes mais proeminentes dos desmandos de Hugo Chavez. Sobre a morte do protoditador, publica uma carta aberta no seu perfil do Facebook.
Today, Chavez died. Venezuela needs a renewal. We don’t need the emotional and social disease that has infiltrated our society. We need POSITIVE change for all. We don’t need the attempts of the government to instill more paranoia. The “Imperialists” did not poison Chavez and cause his cancer. We need to work towards a Venezuela free of these toxic thoughts that defy logic and manipulate the emotions of the Venezuelan people. We need good people to lead. I congratulate the students in my country for being so brave and selfless. To all those people who are mourning the death of one man, please, mourn the 21,000 plus people who were murdered in Venezuela last year. Think about that very real figure. Who is mourning all those victims? Think about the social decay that Venezuelans live in, day in and day out. Let’s keep the perspective of our recent history, and be conscious that a lot of work needs to be done.
