Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democratic-Socialist and former bartender, have a drink of what Socialism brought the Venezuelans. Then take your case of dysentery to a hospital in Caracas – that is, assuming there’s any electricity, clean water, or medical supplies left in the city.
Reuters reports, “Desperate Venezuelans swarm sewage drains in search of water.”
As Venezuela’s five-day power blackout left homes without water, Lilibeth Tejedor found herself looking for it on Monday in the last place she would have imagined – a drain pipe feeding into a river carrying sewage through the capital, Caracas.
Unlike the fetid liquid flowing through the Guaire river, the water emerging from the pipe was at least clear. Those who gathered to collect it said the water had been released by local authorities from reservoirs.
They added, however, that it was being carried through unsanitary pipes and should only be used to flush toilets or scrub floors.
