VP: Chávez is going through a slow recovery process
Nicolás Maduro said Venezuelan people are "ready to face difficulties, whatever it is." "None of us is Chávez, but we all together are Chávez, if we are united." He reckoned that only unity would help "tame the rabid monster of the right wing"
Executive Vice-President Nicolás Maduro said Friday that President Hugo Chávez is going through a "slow" recovery process and that he is "in a battle, clinging to Christ." He recalled that in recent days he was in Havana, Cuba, where he met with the Venezuelan president.
Maduro said the Venezuelan people are "ready to face difficulties, whatever it is." "None of us is Chávez, but we all together are Chávez, if we are united."
In this regard, he said that "everything this Government does is for the aggrandizement of the fatherland." He noted that every year, more "room for happiness" is made in Venezuela.
On the other hand, he reckoned that only unity would help "tame the rabid monster of the right wing," which he termed "pro-imperialist, neoliberal and pro-privatization", and "deeply corrupt."
At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
