Outrageous inequality

Dear Journalists,

As I get gas for my car I think of the outrageous inequality forced into us by corruption, and neglect. I will continue to boycott Citgo until it takes appropriate action to protect the environment, and divert funds for the well being of Venezuelan citizens, and was surprised that the following article did not get a lot of responses from readers:

Venezuela aims with gain billions of dollars by imposing tax on windfall oil prices

Ever since Hugo Chavez took over leadership in Venezuela worries that he would divert oil funds to the FARC have been shown in many commentaries from experts. Ambassador Adolfo Taylhardat dedicated his column to this issue:

Venezuela en el archivo secreto de Raúl Reyes

The following article is by Virginia Contreras, former Venezuelan Ambasador to the Organization of American States

While the quote may not be available yet on CNN’s Fareed Zarakia GPS author Malcolm Gladwell compared United States’ inequalities to Venezuela and Mexico.

Venezuelans need the aid from world leaders, and the International Court of Justice, to resolve abuse of power in Venezuela and restore democracy.
