Crisis in Venezuela
By: Ricardo Sanoja, Daniel Zambrano, and Daniel Chirinos
The nightmare of shopping in Venezuela
Why don’t the people do anything about it? Food and supplies became scarce
People can’t buy groceries every day, also, the Government prevents people from buying too much food and supplies. As it says in this article, “It’s Monday, and if Valero doesn’t go now, she’ll have to wait another 4 days” (Otis 1)Food and supplies are disappearing that’s why certain days are grocery days. The government thinks this “secure” system can control a crowd of people, but people are hurting each other in lines due to this
How Bad are Venezuela’s Economic Problems
Hugo Chavez had been giving away millions of dollars of oil. This leads to low money in Venezuela and drastic economic issues.Why is Venezuela in crisis?This country is based off of oil, so how could they give it away?
With the low oil prices and corrupt government, the country is put into trouble, stated by Nathaniel Flannery“A lack of cash should have Maduro sounding the alarm, as Venezuela must pay off more than $28 billion of debt in the next two years” (Flannery 2).
Money is rapidly decreasing thanks to the cheap oil giveaways from the government.
Murdered for their Guns, Venezuela’s Police are now Victims of Crime
Why has the government let it happen, and why don’t they do anything about it?
Off duty police are killed for their weapons Since January 252 officers have been killed for their weapons buy gangs causing them to be victims of crime, and the government is too corrupt to fix it.“Not even the police are safe in Venezuela. In a country which saw 24,000 murders recorded in 2013 and whose capital city Caracas was runner-up for murder capitol of the world, 252 officers have been killed in the country from January until October this year.
In conclusion, Venezuela is in disaster. The cruelty, corrupt government, low money, food and supply shortages add up to make a devastated country. Venezuela has fallen from one of the joyous places on earth to a devastating nightmare.
