EARLY LIFE

progressing with them to the Venezuelan National Baseball Championships. He also wrote poetry, fiction, and
drama, and painted,[60] and he researched the life and
political thought of 19th-century South American revolutionary Simón Bolívar.[61] He also became interested
in the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara (1928–67) after reading his memoir The Diary of Che Guevara.[62]
In 1974, he was selected to be a representative in the
commemorations for the 150th anniversary of the Battle
of Ayacucho in Peru, the conflict in which Simon Bolívar’s lieutenant, Antonio José de Sucre, defeated royalist forces during the Peruvian War of Independence. In
Peru, Chávez heard the leftist president, General Juan
Velasco Alvarado (1910–1977), speak, and inspired by

of Venezuela.

Living in Caracas, he saw more of the endemic poverty
faced by working class Venezuelans, and said that this
experience only made him further committed to achieving social justice.[58][59] He also began to get involved
in activities outside of the military school, playing baseball and softball with the Criollitos de Venezuela team,

I think that from the time I left the academy I was oriented
toward a revolutionary movement... The Hugo Chávez
who entered there was a kid from the hills, a Ilanero{sic}
with aspirations of playing professional baseball. Four
years later, a second-lieutenant came out who had taken
the revolutionary path. Someone who didn't have obligations to anyone, who didn't belong to any movement,
who was not enrolled in any party, but who knew very
well where I was headed.

Following his graduation, Chávez was stationed as a
communications officer at a counterinsurgency unit in
Barinas,[72] although the Marxist-Leninist insurgency
which the army was sent to combat had already been erad-

icated from that state.[73] At one point he found a stash
of Marxist literature that apparently had belonged to insurgents many years before. He went on to read these
books, which included titles by Karl Marx, Vladimir
Lenin and Mao Zedong, but his favourite was a work
entitled The Times of Ezequiel Zamora, written about
the 19th-century federalist general whom Chávez had
admired as a child.[74] These books further convinced
Chávez of the need for a leftist government in Venezuela:
“By the time I was 21 or 22, I made myself a man of the
left”.[75]
In 1977, Chávez’s unit was transferred to Anzoátegui,
where they were involved in battling the Red Flag Party,
a Marxist-Hoxhaist insurgency group.[76] After intervening to prevent the beating of an alleged insurgent by other
soldiers,[77] Chávez began to have his doubts about the
army and their methods in using torture.[75] At the same
time, he was becoming increasingly critical of the corruption in the army and in the civilian government, coming
to believe Venezuela’s poor were not benefiting from the
oil wealth, and began to sympathize with the Red Flag
Party and their cause and their violent methods.[78]
In 1977, he founded a revolutionary movement together
with Luis R. Gonzalez an William Jimenez, within the
armed forces, in the hope that he could one day introduce
a leftist government to Venezuela: the Venezuelan People’s Liberation Army (Ejército de Liberación del Pueblo
de Venezuela, or ELPV), consisted of him and a handful
of his fellow soldiers who had no immediate plans for direct action, though they knew they wanted a middle way
between the right wing policies of the government and the
far left position of the Red Flag.[77][79][80] Nevertheless,
hoping to gain an alliance with civilian leftist groups in
Venezuela, Chávez set up clandestine meetings with various prominent Marxists, including Alfredo Maneiro (the
founder of the Radical Cause) and Douglas Bravo.[81][82]
At this time, Chávez married a working-class woman
named Nancy Colmenares, with whom he had three
children: Rosa Virginia (born September 1978), Maria
Gabriela (born March 1980) and Hugo Rafael (born October 1983).[83]

Later military career and the
Bolivarian Revolutionary Army200: 1982–1991

Logo of MBR-200.

Five years after his creation of the ELPV, Chávez went
on to form a new secretive cell within the military, the
Bolivarian Revolutionary Army-200 (EBR-200), later
redesignated the Revolutionary Bolivarian Movement200 (MBR-200).[55][84][85] He was inspired by Ezequiel
Zamora (1817–1860), Simón Bolívar (1783–1830) and
Simón Rodríguez (1769–1854), who became known as
the “three roots of the tree” of the MBR-200.[86][87]
Later, Chávez said that “the Bolivarian movement that
was being born did not propose political objectives...
Its goals were imminently internal. Its efforts were directed in the first place to studying the military history
of Venezuela as a source of a military doctrine of our
own, which up to then didn't exist”.[88] However, he always hoped for the Bolivarian Movement to become a
politically dominant party that would “accept all kinds of
ideas, from the right, from the left, from the ideological
ruins of those old capitalist and communist systems.”[89]
Indeed, Irish political analyst Barry Cannon noted that
the MBR’s early ideology “was a doctrine in construction, a heterogeneous amalgam of thoughts and ideologies, from universal thought, capitalism, Marxism, but
rejecting the neoliberal models currently being imposed
in Latin America and the discredited models of the old
Soviet Bloc.”[90]
In 1981, Chávez, by now a captain, was assigned to teach
at the military academy where he had formerly trained.
Here he introduced new students to his so-called “Bolivarian” ideals and recruited some of them. By the
time they had graduated, at least thirty out of 133 cadets
had joined his cause.[91] In 1984 he met Herma Marksman, a recently divorced history teacher with whom he
had an affair that lasted several years.[92][93] During this
time Francisco Arias Cárdenas , a soldier interested in
liberation theology, also joined MBR-200.[94] Cárdenas
rose to a significant position within the group, although he
came into ideological conflict with Chávez, with Chávez
believing that they should begin direct military action in
order to overthrow the government, something Cárdenas
thought was reckless.[95]
After some time, some senior military officers became
suspicious of Chávez and reassigned him so that he would
not be able to gain any more fresh new recruits from
the academy. He was sent to take command of the remote barracks at Elorza in Apure State,[96] where he organized social events for the community and contacted
the local indigenous tribal peoples, the Cuiva and Yaruro.
Distrustful as they were because of the mistreatment at
the hands of the Venezuelan army in previous decades,
Chávez gained their trust by joining the expeditions of
an anthropologist to meet with them. Chávez said his
experiences with them later led him to introduce laws
protecting the rights of indigenous tribal peoples.[97] In
1988, after being promoted to the rank of major, the
high-ranking General Rodríguez Ochoa took a liking to
Chávez and employed him to be his assistant at his office
in Caracas.[98]
