Hasta la Victoria ,Siempre! June 22, 2008

Posted by habeshaviews in What's on the News?.

Venzuelan President Hugo Chavez is a controversial person. He is one of  the few remaining leaders of  the world who actually have the luxury of saying openly what´s on their mind. Of course, he has good resources to back him up as well. Venzuela had 80 billion barrels  of conventional oil reserves as of 2007, the largest oil reserves of any country in South America. In 2006, it had net oil exports of 2.2 million barrels per day  the sixth-largest in the world and the largest in the Western Hemisphere.

A few days ago Chavez was back in the news for threatning the West to stoping oil sells if they implement tough new legislation against illegal immigrants. Aljazeera quoted Chavez as saying  that should European nations begin jailing illegal immigrants from Latin American nations “then we’re going to make our own list of companies from that country that have investments in Venezuela.


The new European guidlines establishes a new Guantanamo for ´illegal´ migrants wwhere they can be held in detention centres for up to 18 months before being expelled. Although Venzuela doesn´t have many immigrants in Europe,Chavez was speaking on behalf of all latino immigrants.

Well I guess , the West can not have its cake and eat it any more.

Hasta la Victoria!
