Venezuela crisis: Maduro threatens seizure of closed factories

All measures'
The threat to seize closed factories came after Venezuela's largest food and beverage company, the Polar Group, halted production of beer, blaming government mismanagement for stopping it importing barley.
The group's billionaire owner, Lorenzo Mendoza, is a fierce critic of President Maduro.
"We must take all measures to recover productive capacity, which is being paralysed by the bourgeoisie," Mr Maduro told a rally in Caracas.
"Anyone who wants to halt [production] to sabotage the country should get out, and those who do must be handcuffed and sent to the PGV [Venezuelan General Penitentiary]," he said.
"We're going to tell imperialism and the international right that the people are present, with their farm instruments in one hand and a gun in the other... to defend this sacred land," he added.

At the government rally, people wore images of the late Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez.
On Friday he declared a full-blown state of emergency, expanding the state of "economic emergency" he had announced in January.
In an address to the nation, he said the measures would be in place for three months but would likely be extended over 2017.
He did not specify if there would be limits to other constitutional rights but he said the decree would provide "a fuller, more comprehensive protection for our people."
A previous state of emergency was implemented in states near the Colombian border last year.
It suspended constitutional guarantees in those areas but did not suspend guarantees related to human rights.
The Venezuelan Minister for Communication and Information, Luis Jose Marcano, said the state of emergency would allow the government more resources to distribute food, basic goods and medicines.
But he added that it also created "mechanisms for the security forces to be able to guarantee public order needed because of the threats by armed groups".

a nation rich w/ natural resources cannot get its people things like power and food. the inability for the socialist to calculate the allocation of is devastating the people and forcing the few industries allowed to survive to shut down or slow operations. go socialism.

no you said they were not socialist and i asked what their economic system was. you said dictatorship and left it at that.

i never said that the state had acquired all of the business, yet. our conversation never got that far. feel free to revisit it if you like.

It also took over the cement sector and the country's biggest telecommunications company, as well as utility companies.

Oil didn't wreck Venezuela's economy. Socialism did.
