The El Paso Diary is written by José Pertierra--an attorney who represents the government of Venezuela in its request for the extradition of Luis Posada Carriles. Pertierra´s journals describe the testimony, evidence, legal skirmishes, quirks and follies of this very historic trial that features for the first time the close collaboration of the United States government with Cuban authorities to prosecute an ex CIA agent who is one of the masterminds of the fifty-year old dirty war against Cuba.

Venezuela has at the present more than 7,100 people´s councils for supply and production, created to confront the economic war staged by the Venezuelan right-wing, said Food minister Carlos Osorio. According to Osorio, the Government began the creation of those organizations less than a month ago seeking to confront and reduce speculation, hoarding and smuggling of basic products.
Venezuelan authorities this week denounced several campaigns from Colombia and Spain to criminalize the South American nation. According to National Assembly (Parliament)Speaker Diosdado Cabello, the fair treatment of the Colombians who cross the border to settle here is guaranteed in this country. In that regards, Cabello questioned the statements by Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin, who said that the situation in Venezuela was “difficult”, and urged to hold talks to establish a bi-national commission to analyze the cases of deportation.
The Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) on Saturday began the assemblies in all 87 electoral districts nationwide until May 24, in the light of the primary elections scheduled for June 28. According to the mayor of Libertador de Caracas municipality and leader of that political organization, Jorge Rodriguez, 1,162 pre-candidates to the National Assembly (Parliament) will commit in those meetings to recognizing the results to be announced by the National Electoral Council (NEC).
The Cuban Five today received the Keys to the City of Caracas from Mayor Jorge Rodriguez, which qualifies them as illustrious guests. At the official welcoming ceremony in the Plaza Simon Bolivar, Gerardo Hernandez, Ramon Labañino, Antonio Guerrero, Fernando Gonzalez and Rene Gonzalez, together with their families, laid a wreath at the statue of the Liberator of America.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Spain, José García-Margallo, announced today that summoned for consultations the ambassador in Caracas, Antonio Pérez, protesting statements of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro.
It was Chávez himself who came across the idea of creating that organization, for he was willing to share with his Caribbean brothers and sisters the abundant economic resources with which Nature had endowed his home country and which had ended up in the hands of powerful US companies and a handful of Venezuelan millionaires.
What prompts us, dear brother, to write this letter is your extremely shameful Executive Order of March 9, 2015 declaring a National Emergency with respect to the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States posed by the situation in Venezuela.
The peace and justice movement in the US, along with congressional allies, have a potentially important role in pressuring Obama, and Secretaries Kerry and Hegel, to rein in the agents of America’s dirty wars. A congressional coalition led by the Miami Cuba Lobby is already agitating for Maduro’s demise. Where are the congressional progressives?
