Bad news from Venezuela concerning the Church, the economy, the dictatorship and its corrupt politics

[Bad news from Venezuela concerning the Church, the economy, the dictatorship and its corrupt politics]
From Catholic World News – 1/25-1/26/18
The president of the Venezuelan Catholic bishops’ conference has said that there is “so much desperation” among the country’s people because the government has seized most of the nation’s wealth. Bishop José Luis Azuaje said that shortages of food and medicine are made more severe because the government, refusing to acknowledge the crisis, will not allow humanitarian aid. He reported that 2 million people have fled Venezuela for security.
The Latin American bishops’ conference CELAM has given its support to Venezuelan bishops who have been accused of inciting hostility to the government. CELAM applauded the Venezuelan bishops for their “prophetic perspective,” and underlined the need for action to address the nation’s crisis, which has caused “hunger, malnutrition, lack of medicines and medical supplies, together with serious violations of human rights.”
The government of Venezuelan President Nicholas Maduro has announced plans for elections on April 30, brushing aside opposition leaders’ pleas for guarantees that the vote would be free and fair. The government and opposition leaders had been engaged in sporadic negotiations on the conditions needed for democratic elections. International observers quickly condemned the government’s unilateral move. 
The Organization of American States (OAS), founded in 1948, has 35 member nations.

  1. Eh … ya hafta crack a few eggs to make an omelette. The result will be good. Just look at Cuba. In a few years the NYT, WaPo, NBC, ABC, CBS and all the other bs networks will adore and praise Maduro, just as they adored and praised Fidel. Francis will, too, unless he’s burning in Hell by then.
