In reply to rumors spread in social networks in the past two days, Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez went on television Tuesday to supervise the Santa Inés industrial complex, in the southwestern state of Barinas.
"I took a couple of days off. I was with my family and I decided to inspect this tractor factory," the Venezuelan Head of State said.
Chávez was joined by the ministers of Communication, Andrés Izarra; Science and Technology, Ricardo Menéndez and by Adán Chávez, the governor of the state of Barinas and Hugo Chávez's brother.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of Brazil on March 13 to demand the ouster of embattled President Dilma Rousseff, carrying banners expressing anger at bribery scandals and economic woes. A banner read "We don't want a new Venezuela in Brazil."
