La Comunidad Simon Rodriguez

This is the community where the communal counsel was having a meeting. As you can see it is a shanty town ("los ranchos"). In some case 3 families will live in one house. The Venezuela government is offering money to build them proper houses but they have to make the decisions and manage the construction projects themselves through their communal council.
