France , July 17 (Xinhua) -- Venezuela's opposition Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD) announced on Monday that it was "zero hour" for the
government of President Nicolas Maduro, as National Assembly President Julio Borges spoke of a "scaling-up of pressure."
Borges was speaking one day after the MUD held an unofficial referendum to protest Maduro's attempt to rewrite the constitution through a National
Constituent Assembly (ANC), which will be elected on July 30.
"In this phase comes the pressure, the escalation, the materialization of the reasons for which people voted ... yesterday. The world and the
government must listen to a cry from an entire country," said Borges.
According to data from the MUD Maillot Zinedine Zidane France , 7.1 million people voted against the ANC on Sunday.
The referendum asked the Venezuelan people three questions: Whether they support or not Maduro's call for the ANC? Whether they support the
constitution of 1999 which Maduro is seeking to change? Whether officials in public office should be replaced?
"If he (Maduro) tries to go against the referendum yesterday, he will be the one leading to more conflict and violence," claimed Borges.
However, the ruling United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) dismissed the results and accused the MUD of vote tampering.
During a press conference, Jorge Rodriguez, former vice-president and current mayor of Caracas Maillot Alexandre Lacazzete
France , denied that the MUD had received the votes it claimed.
Rodriguez called the referendum a "gigantic fraud" which sought to "renew violence" in the country.
He said the Venezuelan opposition obtained only 2,395,390 favorable votes, but multiplied this by three, leading to their announced result of 7,186 Maillot Olivier Giroud France ,170
Rodriguez accused the MUD of trying to perpetrate "a huge fraud against the Venezuelan people" by inflating the numbers.
"There was a gigantic scam on all the people of Venezuela," he said. "Over 5 million votes are missing to complete these false numbers ... We have
proof of this."
Also on Sunday, the government held a simulation of the July 30 vote for the ANC, which the executive hopes can end the country's political

BEIJING Maillot Thomas Lemar France
, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- "Seven yuan (1.13 U.S. dollars) fortwo cucumbers? Do they sing and dance?"
An elderly woman stared at the price tag with wide eyes,sarcastically questioning Yu Chung-cheng when his vegetable shopopened a decade ago.
Even today, at 7 yuan, the cucumbers are still more than twiceas expensive as those in many supermarkets in Beijing. The highprice has scared away
price-sensitive Chinese customers who areaccustomed to bargaining.
But Yu firmly believes the vegetables he sells are worth it,because his vegetables -- though smaller than average and sometimeshome to worms -- are
free of pesticides and chemicalfertilizers.
They are organic.
However, the greengrocer is selling to a cynical market. For 10years Maillot Antoine Griezmann France ,
the world's second largest economy has been rocked byfrequent food safety scandals, including tainted infant powder,water-injected pork and
contaminated chicken feet.
"I have been consistent in one thing: establishing trust in myproduce," says Yu.
The 40-year-old Taiwanese stands out from the typical scruffyBeijing vegetable sellers. He has a neat mustache, and always wearsjeans and a white
shirt. He looks more like a CEO of an Internetcompany.
Yu came to the mainland in 2000 to sell computers and took overan organic farm of 20,000 hectares in the suburbs of Beijing fiveyears later. His
produce was popular among family and friends.Realizing its vast potential Maillot Paul Pogba France , Yu quit his
job and devoted himselfto organic food. ( Other organic vendors have come and gone whileYu has persevered, but he admits it has been tough.
"Not one day in the past decade was good," says Yu with a wrysmile.
"Organic" was a new concept in China when Yu started hisbusiness. According to China's Ministry of Commerce, organic foodhad less than 0.02 percent
of the market in 2004, compared with theworld's average of 2 percent.
Most of Yu's customers were expatriates in Beijing.
At that time, the government also announced a plan to raiseorganic food production by five to 10 times within five to 10years Maillot Samuel Umtiti France , giving
As people earn more and become more aware of healthy eating,they have been more willing to try Yu's expensive but chemical-freevegetables.
Yu's business has expanded, as awareness of organic producegrows. The International Organic Food Exhibition estimated inJanuary that the market share
of organic food would reach 2 percentthis year.
But food safety scandals and fabrication of organic certificateskeep many shoppers skeptical. "People keep asking, 'Is your organicveg real or
not?'" says Yu.
"Scandals have destroyed people's trust in vegetable dealers.The ones who will be hurt the most are not the liars, but thehonest ones," Yu says Maillot Raphael Varane France ,
striking the table with his fingers.
He believes the organic market is doomed to develop very slowlyin China. "With the best will in the world, you can't win trust --it's
disheartening," Yu said in a post on China's Weibo socialnetwork.
Yet he is reluctant to give up. Someone recently tried topersuade him to treat his vegetables with pesticides, but he shookhis head. "I didn't do it
