Mitsubishi not a fan of civil unrest

Anarchy and violence are interrupting production at a Mitsubishi-owned auto plant in Venezuela. There have been two deaths caused by angry laborer riots.

The Japanese firm said the decision came in response to "indiscipline, anarchy and violence".

The factory, in the Eastern Venezuelan city of Barcelona, also produces vehicles for Hyundai. Forced nationalisation of many private companies under the Hugo Chavez leftist-newspeak-commie government was another factor in the decision, although Mitsubishi said the plant may reopen if "peace and discipline" return.
