With no solution to the food crisis in Venezuela, some people have begun looking for new strategies to make life easier on those that have to eat trash to sustain.

Controversial Priest and opponent to President Nicolás Maduro’s administration Father Jose Palmar posted on social media this week about labeling discarded waste so those looking through it for food can do so more easily and “with dignity.”

Palmar called on Venezuelans to celebrate Lent by identifying bags where food has been discarded for those with no where else to turn. That way, they don’t have to dig through non-edible items to find it.

Try to preserve food waste so that people who eat out of garbage cans can praise the Lord,” Palmar wrote.

The priest also recommended that people not mix leftovers with other garbage. Instead, deposit the waste in one bag, tie it and write “food” on the outside

I would go far as saying. Next 5 years, there will be a bloody revolt there. Hungry people with nothing to lose, will do anything. Only thing keeping them from doing so is the military. And the situation there, eventually they too will turn their guns from the people, to the government.

sent from thunderaIt's not a matter of a solution. It's a matter of power. Their Government is buying time by robbing others in order to bribe their supporters. The same thing Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe pulled.

A view somewhat in support of socialism and denying the worst of the claims. At this point, I don't believe anybody.

Unfortunately, that tactic is still working for Mugabe. He's still in power.
