Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez on Sunday resumed broadcasting of his weekly radio and TV show "Hello, President," which he suspended for more than six weeks amidst the election campaign.
Chávez's show was broadcast from the facilities of Río Tiznado Socialist Farming Project, in Guárico state (central Venezuela), where he announced that his government would seize a Spanish farming supply company Agroisleña. He also announced the nationalization of plots of land owned by the Compañía Inglesa, a subsidiary of British meat products company Vestey.
"Agroisleña has now became people's property; it will be owned by Venezuela," said the leftist president.
Eleven years have elapsed since the Santa Rita "hacienda", or rural estate, in the Obispo municipality of Barinas state (in southwest Venezuela), was first invaded.
