Despite some private international media reporting “economic chaos” and that social missions have ground to a halt with President Hugo Chavez still recovering from cancer surgery, the missions continue working.

1. Constant movement forward.

They are climbing up and away from the world the oligarchs preferred, and want back.

Every day counts.

Thank you for this report.
