Bolivian President Evo Morales told a May Day demonstration in La Paz that
his government would expel the US Agency for International Development

There were large marches in Caracas by supporters and opponents of
venezuela's revolutionary government on May 1, as well as smaller ones
around the country, to mark International Workers Day. Government
supporters celebrated a minimum wage rise and a new labour law that extends
workers' rights. Government opponents, however, demanded a “fair wage”.
