Venezuela's ruling party wants respect for Chávez's environment
Anzoátegui state governor and a leader of ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) Aristóbulo Istúriz made an appeal to keep on praying for Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez
Istúriz, also the governor of Anzoátegui state, together with Aragua state governor Tarek El Aissami and the head of Capital District, Jacqueline Farías, said that the president "is an early riser." Reference was made to Chávez's arrival at 2:30 a.m. from Cuba; the coup attempt of February 4, 1992 and the events of April 13, 2002.
"Today (Monday) he killed on the spot those who were saying silly things," Istúriz boasted during a press conference at the PSUV headquarters. "We must take care of the president's environment. We must understand that there are other patients at the Military Hospital and we ought to ensure the good working order. All of us, Caracas residents, are heading for Bolívar Square, and so on, at the Bolívar Square of every state. Let us respect peace and quiet at the Military Hospital. This is our call," he advised.
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.
