English only people are likely missing what is happening at the #Colombia-#Venezuela border. It was closed on Feb 23 to avoid US aggression and false flags. Since then food prices dropped making Venezuelans very happy. But Cúcuta (Colombia) lives from smuggling and is now dying
This is quite impressive, because in only 8 days Venezuela has slowed down the inflation. As @rmenendezp and @pasquicurcio have always said, extraction of currency and subsidised products to Colombia is one of the keys of the economic war from the US.
This can sound like a paradox, because we’re being told by western media that #Venezuela is in crisis and we never hear that Cúcuta is in one of the poorest regions of Colombia. It only survives thanks to the black market from smuggling almost free gasoline from Venezuela
