Jesuit Brother Concludes Hunger Strike In Communist Venezuela

Brother José María Korta, S.J. told journalists outside Congress in Caracas, where he was holding his fast, that in "the dialogue that we have held with government leaders, the main reason for our hunger strike has received a response." In the company of two young activists who joined him in the hunger strike over the last three days, the elderly missionary said he felt fine and that he could have "continued the strike, and may still take it up again." Korta called off his protest after Vice President Elías Jaua promised to meet with him to listen to his concerns and seek solutions to his demands, along with leftwing President Hugo Chávez, who returned from an 11-day international tour Sunday.
