End of years petitions

Well, I am busy with end of year stuff and too depressed to write significant posts.  So for you two petitions to sign.  The first one is from a group of academics and the second one heavily sponsored by Diego Arria.  So there, you have two type of petitions to sign with very different tones but all designed to protest Chavez Advent dictatorship.  Sign one or two but do sign, will you?
