The Non Green Revolution

Who cleans up after the socialists?
El Nacional reports that, since the imprisonment of Caracas Mayor Antonio Ledezma and the installation of an illegal lawmaking body known as the “national constituent assembly,” the city’s environmental planning has been left in “legal, labor, and administrative limbo.” As a result, tons of garbage and landfill are left strewn across the city, with no current plans to clean them up.

“The greatest damage that has been done with the elimination of the Metropolitan City Hall is the environmental aspects. Without this body, the problem remains unattended to. There is no one to take care of the environment in the city and this is crucial because it represents the future,” said Saskia ChapellĂ­n, a landscape architect and professor at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism of the University of Central Venezuela (UCV).

“We have now been set back to the 1960’s, before the creation of environmental agencies,” added Antonio De Lisio, an expert in urban development at UCV. “Caracas must be managed as a metropolis because of dimensions it has acquired over time, including its population density and flow and the needs that have arisen from this.”
Aren't they only fulfilling the socialist promise of a trashy environment for everyone?
