Chavez closes McDonalds in new anti-imperialist vegetarian drive
I thought it very odd to be served coca cola at a Cuban Embassy event early this year, not very anti-imperialist.
However all the Coca Cola in Cuba is effectively illegal cos of the US blockade, so I think they find it funny...also was once proudly told that every wind turbine in Cuba was 'illegal' made in American and illegal under the blockade.
Any way we all know the blockade is going to end soon cos US empire is falling and Obama will end the boycott.
On my one visit with Sarah to Venezuela we found many McDonalds and the other big thing was Chinese...not aware of curry houses in Caracas.
Intrigued to learn from CNN that Hugo has been shutting them down...only for two days though.
Arepa are the fast food from Venezuela...very nice they are too, black beans and queso...
this is the story from CNN
(CNN) -- The Venezuelan government's tax body has closed more than 100 McDonald's restaurants in the South American country for two days because of alleged inconsistencies in the fast-food chain's financial books.
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's government has ordered 115 McDonald's closed until Saturday.
The move, which began Thursday, affects some 115 branches of McDonald's.
