Victory for the Working Class in Venezuela?

Amongst other scarcities in Hugoland unintentionally sparked by central planning, the state has decided to add an intentional one with an Easter alcohol ban. The proletariat, however, is not taking it lying down:

Hardened bar and restaurant-owners in the coastal capital Caracas were not cowed, however, saying that in parts of the city the police will be unable to enforce the dry-out.

“In the working class areas there is no alcohol ban,” said one bar owner in the central district of Chacao. “The police won’t go in there because the delinquents are better armed than they are.”

Having just spent a couple weeks in Caracas, I can attest to this being no idle threat.
