The governor of Miranda state Henrique Capriles sent a message to the Venezuelan people on the occasion of the year's end. "Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them," he said
"Venezuela has learned a lot in a short time. Now, we know the value of unity and consensus and the need to set goals and work to achieve them. Those who believe that things cannot change will start to wake up as long as each of us, the force that drives the change, does what we have to do about the future," Capriles said in a letter published in his personal blog.
A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
