Imagine a country developing and producing its own Covid-19 vaccines, enough to cover its entire population, but being unable to inoculate everyone because of a syringe shortage. This absurd situation is real, and one that Cuba will soon face.

La añorada "reconstrucción" en VenezuelaResulta cotidiano encontrar en los grandes medios transnacionales, con premeditada insistencia, la necesidad de la reconstrucción de Venezuela.

Reconstrucción es la palabra favorita de los grandes medios transnacionales para dibujar el futuro “glorioso” que le espera a Venezuela. Aparece cotidiana e insistente, en artículos y editoriales que, como buenos zapadores, buscan allanar el camino de los traficantes de la guerra. (más…)
