The anti-corruption crusade undertaken by the Venezuelan government does not convince Venezuelans. According to a poll entrusted by the Bolivarian Information and Communication System (Sibci), people are not amenable to the reasons for recent claims of administrative wrongdoing.

The telephone probe –carried out on July 15 and 16- suggests that 52.3% of interviewees fear that the claims of corruption are "a government strategy pretending to fight against corruption." Complaints are welcome –because of their motivation- by 37.8% of interviewees.

The survey includes a sample of 29.71% who call themselves government supporters; 22.29% claim to be independent and only 4.9% are dissenters.

Furthermore, half of the interviewees are afraid that the charges made "are not going anywhere."

After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
