Neither Edgar Zambrano, a congressman for opposition Acción Democrática (AD) party, nor the relatives of political prisoners and exiles have lost their hope for an amnesty.

He promised not to take issue with Solicitor General Cilia Flores, who reasserted on Monday that in Venezuela there are only officials convicted for crimes.

"We understand that the remark is a political statement," the parliamentarian commented.

He squeezed in the call to talks made by President Hugo Chávez shortly after his reelection.

"We have grasped such a call for dialogue, and it is imperative, as it happens in any smart society, for the sake of prisoners and exiles," Zambrano emphasized.

Lastly, he urged the Executive Office to make a soon as possible a decision for the release of prisoners for political reasons. For such purpose, he noted, the Solicitor General "is a very important factor."

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
