Maduro launches Safe Homeland security plan
Nicolás Maduro admitted that the most important issue the Venezuelan society has to solve is high crime rates
From the Honor Courtyard of the Bolivarian Army Military University, Maduro admitted that the most important issue the Venezuelan society has to solve is high crime rates. He said that crime is also hitting other countries in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Initially, the plan will be implemented in the 79 municipalities with the highest crime rate. "It's up to the FANB, the Army, the People's Guard, the Bolivarian National Police, the Scientific, Criminal and Forensic Investigation Agency, and the Bolivarian Intelligence Service. I am calling you to serve your country. You have to act with more awareness, passion, commitment and love," he told the troops.
That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
