Visions of a Freeman - 16 of May del 2013
Freedom to terrorize.

Lets see:
Twenty four hundred rolls sounds like a lot of toilet paper but that bug shipment flew of the shelf for just a few hours in this store in Caracas, the Venezuelan capital.

We send each other text messages. I just got one telling me, there is toilet paper, there is toilet paper and I left the office running to buy some toilet paper because I ran out.

Some consumers harshly complain, they have to stand in long lines for hours just to buy a product they used to take for granted.

This is wrong, this is an oil rich country where we have no food. The country does not even have basic food products to feed it's people.

And not enough toilet paper either so the government announced it will import 50 million rolls, which will begin arriving next week.

Between this Friday and Wednesday of next week we are expecting a shipment of twenty million rolls of toilet paper which will allow us to satisfy the demand for one week or more.

For years Venezuela has suffered shortages of basic food products, even staples like cornmeal. But toilet paper is in a way the staple that broke the camel's back. According to the countries central bank there's a shortage of 21 over 100 consumer products and when supplies are down demand of course goes up and so does inflation, which now stands at 12.5%.

At another super market 800 cartons of butter, a dozen containers in each sold out in a day in a half.

What happens is that people get anxious and try to buy as much stuff as they can.

Socialists policies and the nationalization of several industries have discouraged production according to this economist.

Fields of production that should be active are not. Some companies no longer produce any products. Venezuela is a country that for practical and analytical purposes only produces one thing, oil, which is exported. Everything else has to be imported.

For regular people, the shortage crisis has come knocking at their doors and charge straight into their bathrooms.

Now look at this:
(CNN) -- To avoid getting caught with their pants down, Venezuelan officials say they will confront a toilet paper shortage by importing 50 million rolls to meet demand.

Toilet paper is just one of the basic goods and foodstuffs that have been disappearing from store shelves over the past few months, as the government and private companies blame each other for the scarcity.

Venezuelan Minister of Commerce Alejandro Fleming announced the toilet paper measure on Tuesday, the state-run AVN news agency reported.

Repeating the government's stance, he blamed the media for provoking fear in consumers, who in turn begin hoarding items.

"There is no deficiency in production, but an excessive demand generating purchases by a nervous population because of a media campaign that has been created to undermine the country," Fleming said. "We are going to saturate the market so that our people will calm down and understand that they should not let themselves be manipulated by the media that says there are shortages."

But Venezuelans say the shortages are very real, as staples such as rice and cooking oil are scarce.
The lack of toilet paper is apparent in Caracas, where shoppers hurry to buy rolls and make long lines when the bathroom tissues are in stock.

Venezuela's monthly demand for toilet paper is about 125 million rolls a month, Fleming said.
The government also casts blame on private companies, who they accuse of hoarding their products in hopes of selling it later at a higher price.

But businesses and the political opposition say government policies, including price controls on basic goods and tight restrictions on foreign currency, are to blame. The regulation discourage production, and many producers can't break even with the price controls, they say.

Other hygiene products, such as tooth paste and soap, might also be imported in bulk to meet demand, Fleming said.


This is wrong, this is an oil rich country where we have no food. The country does not even have basic food products to feed it's people.

It says there, clearly, without any doubt at all that there is no food in Venezuela.

It also says there is not even the basic food products.

when supplies are down demand of course goes up and so does inflation

That is not true in Venezuela because the basic products are regulated to a fixed price sin speculation has been always a constant in Venezuelan commerce.

Venezuela is a country that for practical and analytical purposes only produces one thing, oil, which is exported. Everything else has to be imported.

There it says clearly that in Venezuela there is only one thing that is produced and nothing more.

Which is a lie.

Lets see how it has been going for many years.

This news is from the year 2009:
U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization Says Venezuela Prepared for World Food Crisis


Mérida, February 27th 2009 ( -- The representative of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Venezuela, Francisco Arias Milla, said the Venezuelan government’s investment in domestic food production and regional food security will strengthen its ability and that of its neighbors to withstand the worsening global food crisis.

“The FAO recognizes the efforts of the national government [of Venezuela] to introduce policies, strategies, and programs to confront the global economic crisis and the volatility of food prices, and at the same time to protect the food and nutritional security of the Venezuelan people,” Arias told the Bolivarian News Agency (ABN) on Thursday.

Arias specified Venezuela’s national subsidized food market, Mercal, its growing system of public cafeterias, and the state-run Venezuelan Food Production and Distribution company (PDVAL), which sells food at regulated prices, as examples of policies which “permit greater access to food for the most vulnerable strata of society.”

Venezuela has implemented several policies that the FAO recommends, including the fomenting of local food production through the strengthening of social networks, Arias pointed out.

Arias also praised the increase of state investment in the agricultural sector, efforts to organize producers, the expansion of citizen access to arable land through land reform, and the promotion of family farms under the administration of President Hugo Chávez.

Venezuela has also reached out to other Latin American countries to prepare joint strategies to deal with the food crisis. The trade bloc called the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas, which is based on principles of mutual benefit and includes Venezuela and six other countries, has created a joint food company with funds pooled in a joint food security fund.

Arias said these efforts have paid off for the countries involved. “We believe there is a group of countries, including Venezuela, that is better prepared to confront this crisis and whatever other crisis that may come,” he said. “This is due to the institutionalization of food security in the region,” he added.

According to Venezuela’s Agriculture and Land Ministry, agricultural production in Venezuela rose by 3% last year, bringing the total increase in agricultural production to 24% since Chávez took office a decade ago. Specifically, corn production has increased by 205%, rice by 94%, sugar by 13%, and milk by 11% over the last decade, reducing Venezuela’s dependency on food imports.

In 2007, Venezuela became the first Latin American country to help the FAO finance agricultural production projects in third countries when it contributed $4.6 million to FAO small scale irrigation and water conservation projects in Mali and Burkina Faso.

The FAO predicts that the world food crisis will get worse over the next two years. The financial crisis is expected to push down food prices, providing a disincentive for farmers to plant. This will result in a decrease in the food supply and increase in prices in 2009 and 2010, further victimizing the world’s most vulnerable populations, according to Graziano da Silva, an FAO representative in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Moreover, the global economic crisis will continue to pressure states to contribute less to eradicating hunger worldwide, according to FAO General Director Jacques Diouf. The FAO says $30 billion is necessary for this task, and that so far member countries have contributed a total of $22 billion, only 10% of which has actually been deposited.

Although 2008 statistics on hunger are still being processed, many FAO officials predicted that in 2008 the number of people suffering hunger in the world has risen above the record 923 million who suffered hunger in 2007, which was an increase of 75 million over 2006.

FAO ratified food safety in Venezuela

Caracas, 19 Ene. AVN.- A new 2012 report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has found that Venezuela is achieving the Millennium Development Goal by eradicating hunger and meeting the fundamental principles of food safety.

The report, known as Panorama of Food and Nutritional Security in Latin America and the Caribbean, was presented by the FAO representative in Venezuela, Marcelo Resende de Souza, in a visit to a government-run market, in Valencia, Carabobo state, which is one of 725 operations carried out on Saturday to distribute more than 3,300 tons of government-subsidized food.

Along with Venezuelan Vice president Nicolas Maduro, among other officials, ambassador Marcelo Resende de Souza stated: "We handle worldwide hunger data. There are 800 million hungry people in the world, 49 million in Latin America and the Caribbean, but none in Venezuela, because here, there is food safety."

He noted that Venezuelan state exceeded the concepts about food safety, that is access to healthy and subsidized food, a fundamental principle of food safety.

"In the name of the FAO, we want to express our solidarity to president Hugo Chavez for their quick recovery," ambassador asserted.

VP Maduro also said he wants this report to be released decisively and strongly to the public and that "Venezuelan and world media report some day some truth of this people, so they understand that here is a revolution going on."

UN Food and Agriculture Organization to Recognize Venezuela for Halving Hunger

Published: 05/07/2013

The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) will soon recognize Venezuela and 15 other countries for achieving part of the Millennium Development Goal of eradicating hunger.

According to a statement by the FAO Director General José Graziano Da Silva, Venezuela will receive a certificate of recognition at the organization’s next conference to be held in Rome beginning June 15. The recognition is for successfully halving the proportion of people who suffer from hunger, a goal established in 1996 to be achieved by 2015.

FAO statistics say that 13.5% of Venezuelans suffered from hunger in 1990 – 1992, compared to 5% in 2007 – 2012.

The other countries that will be recognized for meeting this goal are Armenia, Azerbaijan, Chile, Fiji, Georgia, Ghana, Guyana, Nicaragua, Peru, Samoa, São Tomé and Principe, Thailand, Uruguay, and Vietnam.

Since the start of the Bolivarian Revolution in 1999, the Venezuelan government has developed a series of policies regarding food and nutrition, that have been recognized by the FAO as helping eradicate hunger in the country.

Local FAO representative Marcelo Resende said in March that the government has been able to “understand that food is everybody’s right and not just the privilege of a few, and it worked based on that.”

AVN/ Press – Venezuelan Embassy to the US/ May 7, 2013

I have thus demonstrated that it is a trend that extends in time for many years.

The shortages are caused by the cheap prices of food that people can easily buy.

Look at the date of that last news... 7th of May. Today is the 16th of May.

On June 15 Venezuela will receive a certificate from the United Nation's FAO because of it's work on feeding it's people and eradicating hunger...

I don't think this is funny:

This is wrong, this is an oil rich country where we have no food. The country does not even have basic food products to feed it's people.

So much for a country that has no food, not even the basic staples...

Venezuela produces nothing but oil, says CNN look:

Venezuela is a country that for practical and analytical purposes only produces one thing, oil, which is exported. Everything else has to be imported.

Is that so?
Venezuela's agricultural gains under President Chávez

By Olivia Kroth

One of the main preoccupations of the Chávez administration is how to reduce the country's dependence on the oil industry. Diversification is necessary, since the oil will surely not last forever, although Venezuela possesses the largest amount of crude oil reserves worldwide.

For the past decade, the socialist government has undertaken great pains to augment Venezuela's agricultural production which has increased by 44% since 1999, reaching 25 million tonnes of food each year, as the Land and Agriculture Minister, Juan Carlos Loyo, reported.

Milk production has shown an increase of 70% since 1999, while the production of beans and corn has doubled. Black beans (caraotas negras) and corn (maíz) are staple food items for the Venezuelan population. Corn flour is the basic ingredient for many dishes, for example the arepa and the empanada.

With the socialist „Coffee Plan" the government gave 1,200 homes to small and medium coffee producers to stimulate coffee production.

Repaired were 7,400 kilometers of agricultural roads. In 2008, the export of asphalt was halted and priority given to national use for road repair. Furthermore, the construction of irrigation systems and large silos improved Venezuela's rural infrastructure.

In 2008, a new irrigation system was installed in the state of Guárico, transporting water to 32,000 hectares of agricultural land. Additionally, local fishermen can fish in the reservoir that supplies this irrigation system.

In the same year of 2008, Diana Industries, a private oil and margarine producing company, was nationalized. The range of products was broadened to include baby food and soft cheeses. Before 2008, Diana Industries had produced only 27,500 tonnes of soap and food and 1,800 of the employées were contract workers. Today, the production has increased to 90,000 tonnes of soap and food, all of the employées are full time workers.

With the help of Belarus and Iran, several tractor plants were constructed in Venezuela. A factory for soya extraction was built in the state of Portuguesa.

During the past years, President Chávez repeatedly pointed out that his administration was battling hard against food shortages, especially in the supply of milk and meat products. "We have to raise our national production of meat and milk," Hugo Chávez said in his Sunday TV show "Aló Presidente."

A number of socialist milk-processing plants were built. They are controlled and managed by local communal councils. One of these plants is the Prolesa milk-processing cooperative in the state of Táchira. Local milk farmers sell their milk to Prolesa, where they get fair prices.

One of the founders of Prolesa said that the multinational Nestle left the region after being caught and fined for hoarding in order to keep milk prices artificially high. They poured milk down the drain, while at the same time mothers were unable to buy milk for their children.

This changed in 2004, however, when Prolesa was founded by some cooperative members, with support of the local dairy farmers, and a loan by the government.

To encourage the creation of cooperatives, "Misión Vuelvan Caras" (Mission Turning Faces) was created, offering scholarships to 650,000 participants in agricultural training, specifically for cooperatives. After this measure, agricultural production in cooperatives rose by 18% between 2004 and 2008.

A small but successful cooperative is 3Rs, managed by members of the Jirajara Peasant Movement (MCJ) in the state of Yaracuy. It took its name from the local indigenous Jirajara tribe that fought hard against the Spanish colonialists.

Two socialist vegetable plants have also started to operate successfully. One of them is "Valle de Quibor," in the state of Lara, where tomatoes and peppers are grown. The other one is "Casas de Cultivos Hidropónicos Julian López" in the state of Carabobo. It grows tomatoes.

Iván Gil, Venezuela's Vice Minister of Agroproducts, said that the plant in Carabobo produces 800 tonnes of tomatoes per year without using any chemicals. "Each hectar develops two yearly cycles, each cycle bringing 100 tonnes," he explained. The tomatoes are sold through Venezuela's socialist government food chain, the "Merca" and "Abastos Bicentenarios" stores.

"Our agricultural production is augmenting," Venezuela's Vice-President, Elías Jaua, emphasized. "During the first six months of 2012, the production of onions and tomatoes was augmented by 25%, compared to the same time span in 2011. Tomato production increased from 104,000 to 128,000 tonnes, onion production from 80,400 to over 100,000 tonnes," he said.

"This is an enormous effort, which President Chávez has made during the last 13 years in agriculture," Elías Jaua pointed out. "It is the result of good planning as well as the application of science and modern technology." He expressed his satisfaction with the results. "So far, 2012 has been an excellent year for the growth of onions, peppers, potatoes and tomatoes in Venezuela."

All in all, Venezuela nowadays is able to satisfy 80% of its national demand in alimentation. "We are at present producing about 80% of what Venezuelans consume." Hugo Chávez said with pride at a recent press conference, giving the following list: 100% of fruits, vegetables, fish and pork; 90% of rice; 85% of corn; 80% of chicken and milk; 70% of beef.

"If we have a good harvest at the end of this year, we will be able to supply 100% of our national demand for rice and corn, it depends on the weather," he continued.

Recently, the government has begun to give low-cost credits to farmers. The Venezuelan Agricultural Bank (BAV), worth 340 million Bolivares, offers 20-year-loans to small and medium rural producers. They can open checking accounts and receive credit cards at BAV.

Shares of "Banco Agrícola de Venezuela" worth one Bolivar are sold to the public. The assembly of shareholders assumes the role of defining the bank's rules and financing policies. The bank's motto is "En Revolución Contra la Especulación" (In revolution against speculation).

Venezuela's socialist agricultural mission, "AgroVenezuela," has already provided about 242 million Bolivares in low-interest-loans (4%) to 1,800 rice producers.

Other privileged sectors to receive loans are beef, fruit, grain and vegetable production. The bank specifies how the loans are to be used: to finance the purchase of seed, machinery for harvesting and transport and the preparation of land.

Regarding cattle, credits are given for construction and repair of infrastructure, sanitary installments, acquisition of equipment and food for the animals.

BAV has 42 offices in 18 Venezuelan states: Anzoátegui, Apure, Barinas, Bolívar, Cojedes, Distrito Capital, Guárico, Lara, Mérida, Miranda, Monagas, Nueva Esparta, Portuguesa, Sucre, Táchira, Trujillo, Yaracuy and Zulia.

In 2012, the average Venezuelan eats much better than during the Fourth Republic, when food prices were horrendous and meat consumption reserved for the rich. During the past decade, poverty in Venezuela has decreased by 60% and consumation of meat has increased.

People can afford better alimentation, because the socialist government has regulated the prices for most food items. Furthermore, the state-owned stores of Mercal offer discount prices. Misión Mercal was introduced in 2004 to tackle rising food prices.

Marilyn Di Luca, executive director of the National Institute for Nutrition, explained that the government initiatives have shown very positive results. Ninety-seven percent of all Venezuelans consume animal protein and children get their daily drink of fresh milk. "Today, Venezuelans eat better and they eat more," she said in the TV program, "D'Frente," emitted by Venezolana de Televisión (VTV).

Intake of proteins has increased by 75%, about 47 grams of animal protein daily per citizen, according to Marilyn Di Luca. She remembered that, "During the Fourth Republic, our Venezuelan children grew an average of 0.8 cm, compared to 1.8 cm in the Bolivarian Republic. Today, children receive better nutrition and show greater capacity of growth," referring to physical and intellectual growth.

The transition from capitalist to socialist production has not been easy, and is not completed yet, but a great leap forward has been made, inspite of many obstructions, first and foremost through hoarding and speculation.

According to Hugo Chávez, nutrition is one of the areas, where customers are most hurt by capitalistic greed. He wants to end capitalistic "immorality, thievery and trickery." He warned, "Speculators, you will repent!"

In the past decade, several businesses were expropriated because of excessive speculation, for example four large supermarkets of the multinational chain Exito. Instead, socialist supermarket chains are growing these days, selling food items at regulated prices.

The socialist government-operated areperas offer Venezuela's popular staple food, the arepa, at low cost. The arepa is a tortilla made of corn flour, filled with beans, cheese, eggs, ham or meat. While privately owned areperas sell the arepa for about 40 Bolivares, the socialist arepa only costs 8 Bolivares. This sum covers the total production costs.

Another private firm which was expropriated is Llano Arroz S.A. The rice threshing and packaging plant was nationalized because it did not pay its major debts to the socialist supermarket chain of Mercal stores.

Moreover, eight small private banks were nationalized at the end of 2010, and merged into a public investment bank, named Bicentenary Bank.

INDEPABIS, the Venezuelan consumer defense institute, is watching closely over private businesses, taking immediate measures when speculation or hoarding are detected. They send the National Guard in, but also local squadrons of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), of the Socialist Women's Front and of labor unions.

INDEPABIS also encouraged the formation of food security committees in communities, to engage them directly in the monitoring process of their local businesses and shops. They get a phone number where to call when they detect hoarding or speculating activities.

The catalogue of measures consists of fines, prison sentences and expropriation, depending on the severity of the crime. Most of the incidents were combatted successfully by fining, emprisoning or expropriating such fraudulent business owners who dared hoarding goods in order to sell them at inflated prices in the black market or in neighboring Colombia.

The legal definition for this type of delinquency, according to INDEPABIS, is "to create irregular situations in the stores by artificially modifying the conditions of demand."

In July 2011, President Chávez introduced the Law for Just Prices and Costs." It is a legal price control mechanism for "the defense of economic rights of people to access good and services." The price-setting law is framed within the Constitution. It promotes democratic access to goods for everybody.

With this law, the "National Integrated System for the Administration of Prices" was set up. It inspects and supervises prices charged to consumers. Vice-President Elías Jaua commented that "The law stabilizes prices, it is a law of labor against capital, a law of the rights of workers to obtain good and fair prices."

President Chávez pointed out that this law is aimed against all those who "monopolize production, hoard and hide products, inflate prices and take the big slice of earnings with them as a result of their pillage."

After the introduction oft the "Law of Fair Costs and Prices," Venezuelan companies started to register their pricing structures with the government's automated price system (Sisap). Prices for household cleaning and bathroom products were frozen, with 480 official inspectors visiting stores all over Venezuela to ensure that local businesses comply.

Since the 15th of January 2012, companies have been obliged to print the prices of regulated items on product labels so that customers can make sure they are paying the right price.

The socialist orientation of President Chávez and his administration prioritizes food production in small units and cooperatives to cover 100% of domestic needs. His aim is that in a few years Venezuela will reach "food sovereignty."

Article 305 of the Constitution states that food security can only be achieved through "developing and privileging internal agricultural production."

Surplus production of cacao, coffee, tropical fruits and flowers is exported to Venezuela's strategic partners in Belarus, China, Iran and Russia as part of the effort to build a pluri-polar world.


But that is certainly NOT what CNN said at all...

Instead CNN blatantly LIED up front.

As you can see food in Venezuela is cheap, sometimes dirt cheap, in fact so cheap that it was not profitable without government support. Then there were two markets, the state market and the private market. So there can be shortages in one market and not on the other.

Just so you have an idea, a Kilogram of rice costs 7.20. The Black dollar of dollars not bought from the government subsidy is 24 Bolivars a dollar. That is more than 3 kilos of rice per dollar...

Referenced material:

In the United States just one kilogram costs 7$...

Using as reference this page:

Being that the minimum salary wage in Venezuela is about 2,500 Bolivars...

2,500 / 7.20 = 347.2 kilos of rice for a minimum salary wage.

That in the United States would cost: 2,430 dollars.

That is more than double the United State's minimum salary wage.

Using this reference:

The price at social markets are cheaper than in the private sector...

So you buy a lot more food if you are poor but the trade off is that you find less food because demand is so high and food is so cheap.

But the voracious market of cheap food for the poor does not mean that their is no food, on the contrary there is too much demand for food. A poor here can eat meat, every single day. You don't see that in other countries. I know not everyone likes meat because they are vegetarians so I mention that vegetables and fruits are also cheaper.

Why does CNN lie?

To create hatred from the people in the United States towards the people in Venezuela and it's government.

It is a war action to destroy the credibility of the Venezuelan government without any consent at all from the North American people that are also blatantly uniformed and brutally lied to for the specific interest of CNN and it's criminal friends that have committed treason against it's own users who trusted them to keep them well informed. They do just the opposite of that to promote hatred and war propaganda.

That which we just saw CNN do is propaganda, that is not journalism at all. In order to be journalism there had to be a scientific method and a balance of arguments. It was just extremist propaganda and thus a TERRORIST ACTION.

I get used to that kind of abuse from CNN, but most people in the United States do not even know how they are viciously lied to.

It is illegal to denounce that abuse in the United States, it's a media tyranny. It is also illegal in Venezuela to denounce that abuse. So it's certainly a rape case where you cannot take a picture of the sexual (information) abuse.

That is the main source of hatred between the Venezuelan and the people of the United States. Many times it is not even their fault because CNN does not even care, at all, what the North American people think before they viciously try to rape people with lies & extremist hatred.

The minute we start to question those abuses from the slavery network CNN they say we are breaking some law and then lobby to implement economic sanctions against Venezuela only because we dared to denounce brutal media abuse. Same thing happens if in the United States a honest citizen denounces a brutal lie from it's own media with scientific evidence. They would immediately pursue legal actions just because he even dared to question the media tyranny and the punishment for questioning a mass media of the United States could go from heavy fines to imprisonment and even death.

Philosophically CNN is a sexual violator, a BRUTAL RAPIST that not only thinks it has the right to rape anyone and even countries, it also says that taking a picture while they are raping is also illegal...

No one in the United States voted for that abuse against Venezuela.
No one in the United States voted so that Venezuela cannot denounce that abuse so that people in the US can see.
No one in the United States voted for CNN to start an aggressive propaganda campaign against Venezuela.
No one in the United States can even discuss the abuse with concrete evidence.
No one in the United States wants hatred between our countries fed with extreme lies.

So CNN is by far not democratic at all, there is no democracy at CNN and thus there is no freedom to even show it's abuses.

CNN is a slavery machine that is forcing innocent North Americans to hate and despise the Venezuelan Government against their will and it declared illegal any attempt to stop it's abuses with ethical science.

This clearly is a breach of the Patent laws in Venezuela that is why I am an activist for the cause of permitting that Academy can bypass the media patent laws in a case in which Venezuela is severely hurt and this case that I am denouncing is clearly one of such cases that cannot be protected by Venezuelan laws.

I am not even saying CNN's patents should be revoked. I am saying that the severe abuses should be denounced and replied to with serious, professional ethics from our Academies because we have the right to defend ourselves from such abuses.

Then they wish my site was taken down just because I express outrage at their savage violation of Venezuela's dignity. Then they say I am illegal because I show their abuses in a very serious, scientific way, not with propaganda junk but at an Academic, scientific level.

They do not want any respect to the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States that talks about Freedom of Expression. They do not want any Freedom of Expression that denounces their abuses.

They do not want Freedom of Press because no press can have freedom to show their abuses, according to them so what they want is:

FREEDOM TO TERRORIZE, violate, deceive, lie, hurt and provoke hatred on the unwilling, innocent people of the United States.

Gobierno Bolivariano disminuye 86% el indicador del hambre en Venezuela (+Video)
NACIONALES - hace 21 horas

FAO reconoce la seguridad alimentaria del país / Destaca la distribución de alimentos a través de los 22 mil establecimientos que conforman las redes de alimentación del Estado

Caracas, 29 de mayo de 2013 (VTV).- Gracias a las políticas alimentarias del Gobierno Bolivariano en 14 años el indicador del hambre en Venezuela disminuye en 86%, informa la directora del Instituto Nacional de Nutrición, Marilyn Di Luca.

Entrevistada en el segmento Dando y Dando que transmite Venezolana de Televisión, la servidora pública indica que el “tema de alimentación es uno de los temas más importantes y exitosos en la Revolución Bolivariana”, razón por la cual la Organización de las Naciones Unidas para la Alimentación y la Agricultura, FAO, reconoce la seguridad alimentaria y la erradicación del hambre como un avance en el país.

Esta instancia establece como meta para 2015 que los gobiernos disminuyan la desnutrición a la mitad de lo que tenían para 1990, que en Venezuela se ubicaba en 11%, y que en 2010 se logra situar en 2%, lo que sobrepasa lo estimado por la FAO.

Di Luca señala que se trata de logros fundamentales que evidencian que “hoy comemos más y mejor”, y destaca la calidad de los nutrientes que garantizan el buen estado nutricional de los niños y niñas y de la población en general.

Resalta el aumento de la distribución de alimentos a través de 22 mil establecimientos que conforman las redes de alimentación del Estado como Mercal, Pdval, Abastos Bicentenarios, el fortalecimiento de las misiones Alimentación y Agroalimentaria./FIN
