The entire country has received with joy and enthusiasm the news of the constitution of our Central Committee. The names of the compañeros who will serve on this Committee, as well as their histories, are well known. … We have attempted to choose those who in our opinion represent, in the most thorough way, the history of our Revolution…

There is no heroic episode in the history of our country in recent years that is not represented here; there is no sacrifice, there is no battle, there is no feat – be it military as civilian, heroic or creative – that is not represented. There is no revolutionary or social sector that is not represented. I am not referring to organizations. When I say sector, I’m talking about workers, I’m talking about young people, I’m talking about campesinos, I’m talking about our mass organizations…

by Pasqualina Curcio Curcio

RESUMEN | September 30, 2019

Venezuela does not produce anything. Only petroleum. Venezuelans are swimming in black gold. We live off of oil revenues. We do not even produce the food we eat. We import it.

In between half-truths and half-lies, these are the most widely spread stories about us. Then follows the old story that becomes a trend every once in a while, that started decades ago: “substituting imports,” also known as “towards overcoming the oil rentier model.”

The Real Venezuela: Dignified, Indivisible and Truthful

The Real Venezuela: Dignified, Indivisible and Truthful
As Rodriguez said, Venezuela is “dignified and indivisible.” We believe that what distinguishes the real Venezuela from its imaginary illusion created by the US are precisely those qualities in addition to being truthful.

All those wondering who is in charge in Venezuela, should stop reading the biased and confusing corporate media and should look at who represents the country at the United Nations. The UN is not a perfect institution but it is one that is clear on the issue of membership despite powerful attempts at obfuscating that clarity.

Much media effort has been put in creating the illusion that the legitimate Venezuela is the one “ruled” by a self-appointed (read, unelected) interim (read, for an undefined term) president that presides with no army, no cabinet, no judicial and no recognized congress. His name is hardly recognized in Venezuela were it not for the unrelenting promotion by his major supporter, the United States government.Read More »
