VP Maduro threatens with radicalization if shortage persists
Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro fingered a trade bourgeoisie that purports to stage "sort of economic war against the people"
"And we would go with you out the streets as well," he completed.
"The trade bourgeoisie purports to stage sort of economic war against the people. We have invited in good faith the businesspersons from the food sector; we have spoken with them. Some have reacted in good terms, yet we have information about some of them making some little games against the people," Maduro explained.
"Should the bourgeoisie intends to play games with the people's hunger, we will use the law, everything, the people's spear; there will be no mercy, listen very well."
When we look at the issue of human rights in Venezuela and the relevant reports submitted each year, a clear pattern emerges, namely, the impunity following the violation of rights such as freedom of expression, political rights, and the right to life and personal integrity, which has Venezuela consistently ranking among the lowest scorers in assessment indices.
