First of all, excuse my english, I’m trying my best.
I think that all attention of international press isn’t on Venezuela, there may be other issues more important than this one.
But for me and all the people that live in this country, this is the biggest issue.
I live in Caracas, and things have been agitated all this week.
There’s a general strike active since Monday, and is extending, at least, till tomorrow.
The gas stations are running very low of gasoline (and others).
In the street where I live, there were officers from the DISIP (the Intelligence Police Squad, or any translation) trying to take “by force” a Captain of the naval forces, because of the situation in the Lake of Maracaibo (There are some “ships that carry petroleum” that are anchored and not delivering any petroleum)
So the interesting thing was that all the neighbors of all the surrounding buildings went to the street and stopped the guy rfom being taken. The street collapsed, there were cars parked blocking all the ways, it was great how the people defended this guy (who had done nothing wrong) and it was all pacific.
I must say that I’m not with the president of my country, and I wish he leaves for good. He’s very stubborn, he seems to live in a parallel world where all that he sees is people loving him or something like that, he doesn’t notice that the people doesn’t want him.
This issue isn’t just political, because the president, being the jackass that he is, is ruining everything in this country. He is making every venezuelan look bad.
I wonder what the international press is saying about Venezuela’s situation.
