Chavez now appears to be winning in Venezuela!
Venezuelan Oil Strike Springs Leak as Ships Load
“Strike-breaking workers loaded Venezuelan oil tankers on Wednesday as a 10-day-old stoppage aimed at forcing leftist President Hugo Chavez to quit sprang a leak.
At least two ships have been loading and another two were due to load, according to shipping agents, loosening the anti-Chavez strikers’ stranglehold on the world’s fifth-largest oil exporter.
“We are overcoming the crisis and showing great strength,” said a beaming Chavez, blaming the strike on upper-class “coup-mongers” who he said were behind an uprising which briefly overthrew him in April. He said they were intimidating ordinary oil workers.”
