VP Maduro threatens with radicalization if shortage persists
Venezuelan Vice-President Nicolás Maduro fingered a trade bourgeoisie that purports to stage "sort of economic war against the people"
"And we would go with you out the streets as well," he completed.
"The trade bourgeoisie purports to stage sort of economic war against the people. We have invited in good faith the businesspersons from the food sector; we have spoken with them. Some have reacted in good terms, yet we have information about some of them making some little games against the people," Maduro explained.
"Should the bourgeoisie intends to play games with the people's hunger, we will use the law, everything, the people's spear; there will be no mercy, listen very well."
The story could have been different. On April 12, 2014, university students led a march to the Attorney General Office in order to submit concrete requests in regards to security and to demand the release of a group of youngsters detained in Táchira state.
