Accompanied by the Bolivian and Uruguayan heads of state and other leaders from Latin America and the Caribbean, Venezuela's Vice-President Nicolás Maduro led a pro-Chávez mass rally held in Caracas on Thursday in support of the continuity of Hugo Chávez's Government, as ruled by Venezuela's top court. The rally began with a recording of the voice of President Hugo Chávez singing the National Hymn.

Addressing Chávez's supporters, Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo said, "I am confident that our comrade Hugo is the person most interested in being here, but who says he is not here? He is in every woman, peasant..."   

For his part, Dominica Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit said, on behalf of oil alliance Petrocaribe and the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA), that Venezuela may rely on a true friend, Dominica.

Likewise, senior officials representing Argentina and Haiti addressed supporters to express their support to Hugo Chávez's Government.

Similarly, St. Vincent & The Grenadines Prime Minister Raph Gonsalves extolled the Venezuelan people's "discipline" and the "support" expressed to President Chávez.

The rock of discord

A shipment of over 30,000 tons of phosphate arrived at Puerto Cabello port in late July on board the Shi Long Ling, a Chinese-flagged vessel that began its long journey in northern Africa. The cargo boat docked on July 26 after traveling more than 3,200 nautical miles. Undoubtedly, this would just be considered one in many cargo ships crisscrossing the oceans if it were not for the fact that Venezuela has denounced Western Sahara occupation by Morocco and yet purchases the territory's natural resource products from the occupying power.
