Lara Pullin of the Australia Venezuela Solidarity Network follows up Lisa MacDonald's call for a week of action - solidarity for Venezuela and protests against Exxon's high handed action in attempting to freeze US$13billion worth of assets of the Venezuela's state controlled oil company that ploughs oil revenue back into social programs for the people and renewable resource projects. With record profits, exceeding the gross national product of many nations (US$36 billion last year), Exxon is bullying many countries to fit their climate change targets to Exxon's agenda - including the targets tentatively set by Australia's new Rudd Labor government.
