CORREO DEL ORINOCO INTERNATIONAL - ENGLISH EDITION - WEEK OF MARCH 30, 2010
Direct from Venezuela/Directo desde Venezuela
Our Correo del Orinoco International - English Edition is out early this week because of Venezuela's celebrations of Easter and Holy Week (it's also Passover!). So here is this week's edition, with special stories on President Chavez's recent visit to Ecuador, and the creation of several new joint ventures in the areas of energy, fishing and chocolate (yum!); Piedad Cordoba's amazing work to achieve hostage release in Colombia; US use of Haiti as a training camp for Afghanistan; our marvelous Vice-Minister for Foreign Affairs, Temir Porras, on why we should keep hope alive; US health care reform; Venezuela's incredible health care program, Barrio Adentro; and Noam Chomsky on US Presidents.
Feel free to send comments, submissions and letters to us at [email protected] And check out all our past editions online at: www.correodelorinoco.gob.ve (we hope to have our English site up and running soon).
