Quick May Day roundup

No Show Castro
Fidel failed to turn up for the annual May Day festivities in Havana. The crowds were instead treated to a speech by a mid-ranking party official who spoke for a mere 7 minutes. Last year, Fidel spoke for three hours.

Chavez's May Day raid on oil companies
Venezuela's Hugo Chavez stripped international oil companies' of their control of four big oil projects AND ordered Finance Minister Rodrigo Cabezas to withdraw Venezuela from the IMF and Worldbank. Should keep the comrades happy.
