  • Venezuela: Suspended attorney general Ortega barred from entering former office

    Venezuela's former chief prosecutor Luisa Ortega Diaz was sped away on the backseat of a motorbike after finding some 30 national guardsmen blocking her entrance to the public prosecutor's office in Caracas, Saturday. Government forces wearing riot gear surrounded the entrance to Ortega's headquarters, preventing her from entering the building where her office is situated.

  • Venezuela opposition leader banned from office

    (8 Apr 2017) Venezuela's government has barred opposition leader Henrique Capriles - twice a major presidential candidate - from running for office for 15 years, a surprise move sure to ratchet up tensions amid a growing street protest movement. Capriles read from excerpts of the comptroller general's order at a rally on Friday night in which he urged supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a previously scheduled demonstration on Saturday, to defend their political rights and demand the removal of President Nicolas Maduro. The 44-year-old Capriles has been the most prominent leader of Venezuela's opposition over the past decade, twice coming close to winning the presidency despite institutional obstacles that tilted races in favour of the government.

    With hyperinflation so severe that people have to carry backpacks stuffed with cash to the local supermarket, it's no surprise that Venezuela - a country which is in its worst shape since World War II - is the world's worst-performing economy. Across the oil-rich South American country, chronic power outages, crumbling infrastructure and severe shortages of basic goods have led the army and police to guard food supplies. Less than three years after the death of the charismatic and larger-than-life Hugo Chavez, the hugely popular leader's Bolivarian Revolution is being blamed for failing Venezuela. But how did the country get itself into this mess? With oil accounting for 95 percent of Venezuela's export earnings, plummeting world prices have sent the economy reeling towards collapse. ...

Luisa Ortega took to Twitter to denounce what she called a military "siege", as some 30 national guardsmen in riot gear stood outside her headquarters in Caracas. Access to the downtown block where the building is located was completely restricted amid a heavy troop deployment.

Venezuela was once the richest country in Latin America. It has the largest known oil reserves in the world. And its democratic government was once praised world wide. But today, Venezuela’s democratic institutions and its economy are in shambles. The country has the highest inflation in the world, making food and medicine inaccessible to most Venezuelans. Over the last four years, its GDP has fallen 35%, which is a sharper drop than the one seen during the Great Depression in the US. The country’s murder rate has surpassed that of the most dangerous cities in the world. These conditions have sparked months of protests against the president, Nicolas Maduro. And it’s easy to see why: the country has become measurably worse since his election in 2013.

El Nino and climate change have brought severe drought, and years of corrupt and incompetent leadership have ruined the economy--a two punch combination that has this tropical nation of 30 million people reeling. The drought means water is only arriving in the capital, Caracas, once a week. And when it does come, it’s brown and makes people sick. With no rain, the water level is critically low at the Guri hydroelectric dam that normally provides about 60 percent of the nation’s power demand, but without enough water to run it at full capacity, the government is shutting off electricity for hours every day. This energy crisis is coupled with an economy in shambles. Inflation is above 700 percent, that’s the highest rate in the world. All this is due to the poor decision making of an extremist government that’s been led by Hugo Chavez and his successor Nicolas Maduro. They’ve been gradually killing business with a tsunami of regulations, price controls and government takeovers, which has eliminated the private production of many goods and services. So people have bags full of cash, but nothing to buy. Grocery store shelves are bare, and hunger is spreading rapidly. The most tragic part of this story is that Venezuela is sitting on the world’s largest reserves of black gold, so with all that oil it should be on the opposite end of the spectrum--it should be one of the healthier economies in the world. To understand why it’s not, I think two points are worth highlighting: 1) Venezuela has a tumultuous modern history, with constant - and often violent - struggles for power, so Venezuelans have had to put up with a lot of turmoil and don’t expect much stability from their government, and 2) the country is still suffering from the aftermath of the rule of Hugo Chavez, a charismatic firebrand who rose through the military and led two failed coup attempts before becoming President. After himself surviving a coup attempt, Chavez ruled Venezuela during the Bush years, and constantly portrayed himself as a socialist counterweight to Bush’s imperialism. Chavez: “Yesterday the Devil came here.” He also took advantage of record high oil prices during the 2000’s to spend lavishly on his people while running irresponsibly-high budget deficits year after year. But the oil money kept flowing in, so the damage Chavez was doing wasn’t obvious until after his death from cancer, in 2013, when his hand-picked successor - Nicolas Maduro - took power in a fraudulent election and continued Chavez’s policies. In 2014, Venezuela suddenly found itself ranked fifth in Latin America in GDP per capita--falling from first place when Chavez took over in ’99. And as oil prices plunged, so did revenues, but the government couldn’t scale back because its spending on social programs and employment was propping up the entire economy. Fed up - especially over moves like jailing the leader of the opposition - Venezuelans showed their displeasure at the ballot box and earlier this year, Maduro’s United Socialist Party lost control of the legislature in a landslide, but he packed the courts with judges who so far have defeated lawmakers’ efforts to remove him from office. Maduro’s also following the dictator playbook by declaring a state of emergency and revving up the military that will be his last line of defense if large numbers of Venezuelans take to the streets in revolt.

(8 Apr 2017) Venezuela's government has barred opposition leader Henrique Capriles - twice a major presidential candidate - from running for office for 15 years, a surprise move sure to ratchet up tensions amid a growing street protest movement. Capriles read from excerpts of the comptroller general's order at a rally on Friday night in which he urged supporters to take to the streets, beginning with a previously scheduled demonstration on Saturday, to defend their political rights and demand the removal of President Nicolas Maduro. The 44-year-old Capriles has been the most prominent leader of Venezuela's opposition over the past decade, twice coming close to winning the presidency despite institutional obstacles that tilted races in favour of the government. He's currently governor of Miranda state, which surrounds Caracas, and is one of the most recognizable leaders behind the protest movement that has been roiling the country this week. Maduro didn't comment on the order in an appearance late Friday on state TV, but urged his supporters not to be distracted by tough language coming from "Capriloca," a play on the Spanish word for "crazy." Leaders in the ruling socialist party have accused Capriles in recent days of trying to provoke a bloodbath through his leadership of near-daily protests, many of which have ended in tear gas and rubber bullets. The move against Capriles is part of a broader government crackdown that began with a decision last week by the Supreme Court to gut the opposition-controlled congress of its last vestiges of power. The move was later reversed amid widespread international condemnation, but with the unpopular Maduro under increasing pressure to call elections, the constant arrests at marches and threats against party leaders may be his best way to stunt the opposition's momentum, analysts said. Authorities have been investigating Capriles since the beginning of the year for what they say are a half dozen administrative irregularities, including taking suspicious donations from abroad. Among Maduro's opponents, he's considered a moderate, having criticized a wave of protests in 2014 that led to scores of deaths.

With hyperinflation so severe that people have to carry backpacks stuffed with cash to the local supermarket, it's no surprise that Venezuela - a country which is in its worst shape since World War II - is the world's worst-performing economy. Across the oil-rich South American country, chronic power outages, crumbling infrastructure and severe shortages of basic goods have led the army and police to guard food supplies. Less than three years after the death of the charismatic and larger-than-life Hugo Chavez, the hugely popular leader's Bolivarian Revolution is being blamed for failing Venezuela. But how did the country get itself into this mess? With oil accounting for 95 percent of Venezuela's export earnings, plummeting world prices have sent the economy reeling towards collapse. Home to the world's largest inflation rate, the IMF expects inflation to blow past 700 percent this year. And just last week, President Nicolas Maduro, Chavez's successor, was forced to make the controversial decision of raising fuel prices - by a whopping 6,000 percent. And with fears growing that Venezuela won't be able to afford its debt repayments, the situation could get even worse. Patrick Duddy, the director of the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at Duke University and a former US ambassador to Venezuela joins Counting the Cost to discuss how Venezuela fell into this extraordinary mess. Nigeria's changing fortunes Nigeria is struggling to leverage the country's vast oil wealth with low oil prices taking a heavy toll on its finances. The world's eighth-largest oil exporter with almost 90 percent of its export earnings tied to oil, President Muhammadu Buhari has faced a tough first year in office. Since entering office in April, Buhari has seen Nigeria's total debt rise to $65.4bn, the currency collapse to record lows, and inflation rise to 9.6 percent - the highest level since 2012. Dr Amy Jadesimi, the managing director of the Nigerian oil services group LADOL, discusses Nigeria's lack of diversification and high dependence on crude oil. - Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

(5 Aug 2017) Security forces surrounded the entrance to the office of Venezuela's chief prosecutor on Saturday ahead of a session of the newly installed constitutional assembly that is expected to debate removing the onetime loyalist-turned-arch government critic. Luisa Ortega took to Twitter to denounce what she called a military "siege", as some 30 national guardsmen in riot gear stood outside her headquarters in Caracas. Access to the downtown block where the building is located was completely restricted amid a heavy troop deployment. The move came as members of the all-powerful Constituent Assembly pledged to move quickly against opponents of President Nicolas Maduro beginning as early as Saturday, when the body meets for just the second time.

Brought to you by An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth To Power http://inconvenientsequel.com/action “CARACAS, Venezuela -- Venezuela's chief prosecutor's office is reporting three deaths on the day of a controversial vote for a constituent assembly that opposition leaders fear will trigger the end of democracy in Venezuela. The office tweeted that 28-year-old Angelo Mendez and 39-year-old Eduardo Olave were killed at a protest Sunday in Merida. Thirty-year-old Ricardo Campos was killed in a separate incident in Sucre. Few details were provided on the deaths. Leaders with the opposition Democratic Action party on Twitter identified Campos as the group's youth secretary in Sucre, a state in northern Venezuela east of the nation's capital. The deaths bring the total to at least 122 killed in nearly four months of political upheaval.” Read more here: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/venezuela-democracy-vote-protests-death-toll-caracas-nicolas-maduro/ Hosts: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian Cast: Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro spoke to crowds of supporters at the presidential palace in Caracas on Thursday, as he marked his three years since he assumed office. Thousands marched through the centre of the Venezuelan capital to show their support for the current president and to honour former leader Hugo Chavez. Maduro also used the occasion to remember to Chavez and his own electoral campaign that was conducted immediately after the death of the Bolivarian leader. He said, “We carried Chavez to his last resting place in the mountain barracks and we had to get out and vote. Today, we are celebrating three years since the heroic victory of 14th April 2013.” Video ID: 20160415-002 Video on Demand: http://www.ruptly.tv Contact: cd@ruptly.tv Twitter: http://twitter.com/Ruptly Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Ruptly LiveLeak: http://www.liveleak.com/c/Ruptly Vine: https://vine.co/Ruptly Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/Ruptly YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/RuptlyTV DailyMotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/ruptly

The South American trade bloc has indefinitely suspended Venezuela’s membership, demanding that Caracas respect democratic processes. Mercosur member states have called on the Venezuelan government to dismantle the newly-elected constituent assembly. Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has described the move as illegal and accused Argentina’s president of trying to impose a blockade on his country. The constituent assembly was inaugurated on Friday to rewrite the constitution. In its first session, it removed Venezuela’s Chief Prosecutor from office and replaced her with a government loyalist. On Saturday, Venezuelan security forces prevented Luisa Ortega from entering her office, shortly after her dismissal.
