    Good. Now Latin American countries whom are friendly with Venezuela needs to work with them in order to build up economy and trade to bypass these issues happening. This in turn can also work for the countries who are also facing issues.

    Hungry Venezuelans Flee in Boats to Escape Economic Collapse

    By NICHOLAS CASEY
    NOV. 25, 2016



    WILLEMSTAD, Curaçao — The dark outlines of land had just come into view when the smuggler forced everyone into the sea. Roymar Bello screamed. She was one of 17 passengers who had climbed onto the overloaded fishing boat with aging motors in July, hoping to escape Venezuela’s economic disaster for a new life on the Caribbean island of Curaçao.

    Afraid of the authorities, the smuggler refused to land. Ms. Bello said he gruffly ordered her and the others into the water, pointing toward the distant shore. In the panic, she was tossed overboard, tumbling into the predawn blackness. But Ms. Bello could not swim.

    As she began to sink under the waves, a fellow migrant grabbed her by the hair and towed her toward the island. They washed up on a rocky cliff battered by waves. Bruised and bleeding, they climbed, praying for a lifeline: jobs, money, something to eat. “It was worth the risk,” said Ms. Bello, 30, adding that Venezuelans like her “are going after one thing: food.”

    Let’s call Venezuela what it is under Maduro: a dictatorship

    Reynaldo Trombetta
    Thursday 17 November 2016 13.45 GMT



    Very few outside Venezuela seem to have the courage to describe it as such, but the country under Nicolás Maduro is now a dictatorship. The heir of Hugo Chávez has shown that he will happily violate all principles of democracy and human rights to remain in power. For years, Chávez proudly reminded the world how many elections he had won, and how his revolution was giving a voice to the impoverished masses. Today, Maduro has no interest in anybody else’s voice – especially the growing majority that opposes him.

    The presidential recall referendum, which could have led to early elections if it had been held this year, was killed off by regional courts that had no say in electoral matters. The elections for governors and mayors, which would have been a major defeat for the “Chavistas”, were arbitrarily postponed by the government-controlled Electoral Council. And the National Assembly, in which the opposition holds a two-thirds majority, continues to be obstructed by a supreme court also controlled by Maduro.

    It's true, the Bolivaran revolution has failed. Chavez was assassinated (his cancer was instigated). This time around the
    Yankees succeed where in the case of Castro and the Cuban revolution they failed.

    Maduro is a joke and likely a secret sell out. Venezuelans are going to suffer for many years even after some US stooge
    gets into power. Uncle Scumbag ain't no socialist charity giver.

    I'm not sure if Raul's Cuba is a success, and the country didn't achieve anything significant post 1991.

    I agree. Chavez was charismatic and made the right choices with regards to strengthening the military. Maduro is a complete joke, an amateur and dangerous.

    After Trump was elected sites that offered immigrants housing and jobs in NZ got 20 times the normal traffic for this time of year from the US...

    Talking about economic migrants buying illegal passage to another country means very little on the surface in terms of politics.
