Hugo Chavez Militarily Confiscating Farms of Venezuelan Patriots? Using Foreign Forces?

Late Sunday night, we began to see sketchy reports from individuals that  farmers in the region of Sur del Lago, Venezuela were being attacked by Venezuelan as well  as foreign military, all directed by Hugo Chavez.

Initial and unconfirmed reports allege that fellow perpetrators are Cubans, thugs from the drug cartel FARC, and even Hezbollah, all there for the action.

This seems to be a crackdown on elements of the Venezuelan populace which opposed Hugo Chavez in the recent Venezuelan election.  The blog, Venezuelan News and Views puts it this way: “Sur del Lago people are resisting.  The legislative assembly of the state moved down there to seat, the representatives elect are stirring the pot, the regime sent a Cuban general!”

Twitter tweets which have been reporting these events have used hashtags: #SOSinternetVE, #SurdelLago, and #Venezuela.

It was reported that up to 47 farms have been taken by Marxist forces.  Is it the official Venezuelan military?  Just who if any, are assisting them?  Here are a few tweets:
