Venezuela: General Strike Over

On Sunday night, the Venezuelan opposition movement decided to terminate the strike which had lasted almost two months. The strike was intended to topple the government of President Hugo Chavez, who has been democratically elected to be Head of State until 2006, something which it has failed to do.

Timoteo Zambrano, the spokesperson for the “Democratic Coordination”, the organism controlling the opposition to Hugo Chavez, declared to the Press that he would not abandon the thousands of workers dismissed by the Venezuelan State Oil Company, Petroleos de Venezuela, SA (PDVSA) due to their support for the strike.

He added that the opposition will adopt a new strategy, working together with the President of the Organization of American States, Cesar Gaviria.
