Venezuela-People's Power administers $1 billion thanks to the Revolution http://www.abn.info.ve/node/68842
The Venezuelan people, thanks to the power and resources transfer policies implemented by the Bolivarian Government, is administering over $1 billion dollars, through diverse socio-productive projects for the comprehensive development of the country, informed this Saturday the Planning and Finances Minister, Jorge Giordani.In an act to transfer resources for projects in the Metropolitan Area of Caracas, Giordani said that these kind of policies have no comparison within the historic politics of the country,
“which looks for the vindication of the social debt left by the neoliberal governments of the Fourth Republic (1958-1998).”“In the past, the resources were seized by businesspeople, unions, governments. Not anymore, now the people is going to administer directly people"s resources,” he stressed.In this regard, he recalled that the social investment made by the Bolivarian Government is over 380 billion dollars, resources that have been destined to essential sectors such as health, education, housing and food.
Minister Giordani highlighted that the social debt left by Fourth Republic governments was above 100 billion dollars.Just in the first decade of the Bolivarian Revolution, the debt has been paid off and overcome by four times. We have granted resources, almost 400 billion dollars, four times above such figure to pay the debt, and it is still there. There will be always needs”“You are the main responsible to make that those resources, which belong to the people, go directly to satisfy people"s needs. You are essential in the process, not just in the execution of the resources, but also in the social control of it,” he emphasized.
Giordani underscored that not even a cent can “disappear” from those resources, “and you have to watch how they are being used. People are learning, the people are getting organized and administering their own resources, setting their priorities, not mayors or governors kidnapping the power, as those of the opposition who shall not come back ever again. They will disappear.” Those governors and mayors of the bourgeoisie, of the right-wing, believe that they can kidnap people"s resources, Giordani reiterated, “because they believed that they had the control on their backyard, because they are representatives of the US imperialism, they are kidnappers of the power. They are just a political trash, a grotesque vision of the history that shall not return. They will not rule this country ever again.”
