Venezuela: Pro-Chavez Rally is Largest Rally Ever Held

Supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez flood Caracas's streets during Chavez's closing campaign rally in Caracas November 26, 2006. The rally was said to be the largest in the countries history, estimated at 2 million by the City. It was the final Chavez rally before the election this Sunday.

Meanwhile, the US Embassy seems to know something the rest of the world does not. Despite the huge margin of victory predicted by polls, the US has urged Venezuelan residents to stockpile food, water and medicine in case of "public disorder" following the vote. Chavez has accused the opposition forces of planning disruption after the vote but it has been denied up to this point.
