On February 27, 1989, the people were filled with "an explosive fever of rebellion," said Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro during a ceremony in commemoration of the events downtown Caracas.

In his speech, Maduro disclosed the approval of funds to indemnify "a substantial percentage of families and youngsters who were slain and gave their lives 24 years ago." The amount totals USD 1.93 million to enforce a decree issued by President Hugo Chávez on February 17, 2009.

"Victims and relatives have been gradually identified, and little by little the relatives of the fallen have been secured. Under this memorandum account, 34 families are being safeguarded," he said.

In the ceremony, also attended by National Assembly Speaker Diosdado Cabello, Maduro extolled the civilian-military union which, according to him, is present nowadays. In his words, "the massacred people mean power in Venezuela and lead a beautiful, democratic and socialist revolution."

The rock of discord

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.
