I suppose I should have posted something on this sooner, but I assume that most of the people who come here either can guess my opinion on the subject, or know more about it than I do. But for those others I'll say, quoting Max Sawicky, that it's Capital on strike in Venezuela.
"Chavez has been reluctant to use state power to break the strike, despite the enormous damage to the economy. In the United States, a strike of this sort -- one that caused massive damage to the economy, or one where public or private workers were making political demands -- would be declared illegal. Its participants could be fired, and its leaders -- if they persisted in the strike -- imprisoned under a court injunction."
