Capriles: situation of hospitals is not a result of capitalism
The opposition leader instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care
During his speech, the opposition leader referred to the cost of drugs and the dramatic conditions public health care institutions are facing. In this regard, the governor instructed state Government officials to provide citizens with solutions in health care.
Capriles seized the opportunity to reject the remarks by Health Minister Isabel Iturria, who after 15 years of revolution in Venezuela, still blames the situation of hospitals to capitalism instead of the current Government.
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.
