A unique and insightful film which follows the ups and downs of life in Venezuela’s State Oil company as president Hugo Chavez has taken control, with the aim of using its profits to further socialistic goals.
The ideological battle spills out onto the street and turns into a physical battle for control of the oil revenues of a country sitting on the largest reservoir of heavy crude in the entire world.
I Was Watching This Special on Aljazeera English Yesterday And Today (The Screenshots were taken today) And It Shows How The Oil Company PDVSA became from Where it was prior to Chavez to Now Socialist Oil.
The Show Painted A Picture of How ”Red oil”(Based on Hugo Chavez’s Favorite color) Came to Be A Showed A Variety of Situations That Made PDVSA Today.
From When Chavez First Came to Power In The Late 1990’s to the 2002 Coup d’tat That temporarily Overthrew him And the Sacking Of 18,000 Employees After having An Unsuccessful Strike.
