The nursery at the Venezuela Television offices in Los Ruices in eastern Caracas was evacuated after the channel was threatened by violent opposition protesters who threw rocks into the nursey’s garden and set a police post on fire across the street from the station.
The attack was repelled by VTV workers themselves before the national guard arrived to arrest six people involved in the attempted assault.
Workers were seen coming out of the building to defend the station and freedom of the press in Venezuela, dismantling barricades set up by opposition forces in their efforts to shut down the city.
President Nicolas Maduro blamed the attack squarely on the mayor of the municipality of Sucre, “I blame Carlos Ocariz for this attack and I call for swift justice in this case.”
Young Cuban artists and writers from the Hermanos Saiz Association, one of Cuba’s oldest cultural organizations, joined several organizations in condemning Trump’s policy change towards the Caribbean island.
At the AHS National Council meeting, the Cuban artists declared their solidarity with the National Association of Cuban Writers and Artists against Trump’s “manipulative” speech delivered in Miami on June 16.
Remembering the speech by the Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro, the members highlighted how in his address to the intellectuals, Fidel announced some groundbreaking political programs in 1959 as part of his manifesto of the July 26 Movement. Army barracks were turned into schools and teaching budgets were increased tenfold.
Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez slammed critics of the Bolivarian Revolution at the Organization of American States, OAS, general assembly in Cancun, Mexico on Tuesday, calling them “lapdogs of imperialism.”
The United States, Brazil and 10 other members of the 34-nation OAS issued a letter accusing Venezuela of “undermining democracy,” “failing to feed its people” and “violating rights.”
“Considering the interruption of the democratic process in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, we believe that there should be a settled solution that includes all Venezuelan parties for the benefit of the people of that nation,” said the letter issued at the contentious OAS meeting.
The statement called for the release of so-called “political prisoners,” an election timetable, a “humanitarian channel” to ship food and medicine, and the creation of a group or mechanism to help “effective dialogue among Venezuelans.”
The 12 nations also called on Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro to abandon plans for the upcoming Constituent Assembly, a process intended to allow for massive democratic participation in the rewriting of the country’s constitution. Maduro has indicated that it will bring “power to the people” and create the political space to allow for citizens to confront corruption.
Obama worked to transcend past mistakes and build a future defined by the common interests and aspirations of the United States and Cuba, Clarke told content-provider Caribbean Media Corporation.
When the Barack Obama administration made modifications to the policy being applied to the island, we considered that more than a demonstration of good will of some, it was a reflection of the failure of the policy of imposition and sanctions against this small liberty-loving country, it stresses.
The Foreign Ministry considered it was not a kind of ‘deal’, but a well-thought political decision that had no losers, except for the marginal anti-Castros, it highlights.
On the birth anniversary of the late revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara, killed by CIA agents 50 years ago in a Bolivian jungle, Bolivia’s President Evo Morales has been paying tribute to his legacy.

“#ElCheVive in the struggle of the peoples of the world, regardless of frontiers fought the injustices of imperialism, we will overcome,” he added in another tweet.
Cancer is the deadliest disease of our time, and unfortunately, scientists haven’t been able to find a cure yet. There are many scientists who have dedicated their life in the search for the cure, and there are many promising natural alternatives that can replace chemotherapy and radiation in the future. The latest example is a research from Cuba, where a small group of scientists with a limited budget have been able to develop a vaccine against cancer that has cured more than 4000 people! The scientific community is impressed by the Cuban discovery, and many doctors claim that the cure for cancer has finally been found!
The vaccine has produced incredible results even in the more advanced stages of cancer. It finally saw the light of day after 16 years of intense research, and doesn’t have any adverse side-effects. What’s even more impressive is the fact that a country like Cuba has managed to develop such a marvelous creation instead of bigger countries and pharmaceutical giants that were not even close.
