Reusing Golf Courses and Abandoned Land in Venezuela

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is urging for golf courses to be expropriated for other uses, and calling on citizens to make use of abandoned land.

He brought up the idea of repurposing golf courses in his weekly television show by condemning the stark contrasts between the rich who use the golf courses and the destitute slums that are often just on the other side of their fences.

"Chavez also called on Venezuelans to actively look for abandoned private land to expropriate.

'Look for irregularities, and by that I mean good land that's been abandoned,' he said."
