Venezuela President warns groups not to boycott Copa America

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, who has faced two weeks of street demonstrations, has warned opposition groups not to boycott the Copa America games starting later this month.

"If they try that, it will be bad for them,'' Chavez said in a televised speech today in southern Apure state. "These people are against the fans, the country and the world.''

This could add a very odd element to the tournament.

I truly hope the opposition has the sense to boycott the tournament or at least disrupt it with peaceful marches against the government. It may be their last chance before Chavez nationalizes everything in the entire country.
