Authorities discovered on Thursday 50 tons of food and other types of products like detergent, toothpaste, in the northwestern port of Maracaibo, the second largest city of the country and capital of the state of Zulia.

The discovery comes amid continuing reports of food shortages in the country by international corporate media and Venezuelan opposition groups that seek to portray the South American country as in the midst of an economic crisis.

  1. Sometimes the truth about an event or a process takes a long time to get out to most people. The vicious political and economic destabilization process packaged and marketed by US imperialism and the local oligarchy in Venezuela as an economic crisis caused by Chavez-Maduro and socialism is one such process.

    In this context, the food shortage that imperialism and the Venezuelan oligarch created to created popular discontent with the hidden desire to remove the democratically elected Maduro government is unraveling with the discovery of 50 tons of food and other consumer articles in short supply.

    How vicious and depraved can imperialism and the local oligarchy in Venezuela get to dislodge from power the government elected by its people ?

    What is the moral limit of imperialism and the oligarchy in Venezuela that would use food as a weapon to collectively punish the Venezuelan people for supporting their government?

    Hopefully, more Venezuelans who support the political opposition and who may have moral concerns with the manifest manufacturing of a food crisis to bring down the Maduro government will be outraged and will make their outrage known to their leaders and the country.

    Hopefully also, the corporate press in the US and other parts of the world or at least those reporters with any decency left will begin to expose the LIE that they have played a role in creating that the shortage of foods is caused by the policies of President Chavez and now President Maduro. Hopefully, they will begin to expose the local oligarchy and the merchant class in particular as being responsible for the creation of this artificial food shortage. However, to harbor such hope is illusory since the corporate media is a part and parcel of the destabilization policy that is intended to turn public opinion inside and outside of Venezuela against the popular revolution. To expose those vicious and criminal bastards who hide foods from people for political reasons, It will be up to the Venezuelan government and all its allies as well as people of goodwill in Venezuela and
    globally to expose and denounce the use of food as a political weapon against the majority of the Venezuelans who are unable to catch the latest flight to shop for foods and other items made short by the local merchant class.

    Those criminals responsible for this latest outage against the Venezuelan people MUST be captured and jailed for a very long time. In the meantime, the search must never cease to locate more of these crime scenes where foods and other items made short are buried from the people.

    The struggle continues against criminals posing as law abiding citizens!

    Peace begins when the hungry are fed until then its war against those who create institutionalized hunger in Venezuela and globally!
