Ever since the reelection of Hugo Chavez in December, there has
been a growing shift to the left in the Venezuelan Revolution. President Chavez
saw his victory as a victory for socialism. For the first time, free health
care has been introduced and illiteracy abolished. Now there is a widespread
discussion of how to take the revolution forward with 5.7 million people
registering to join the new United Socialist Party.
However, the attempts
by US imperialism and their friends to isolate and subvert the Revolution have
been stepped up. We call on all youth, trade unionists and progressive people
to rally in support of the Venezuelan Revolution.
Entrance is free for
HOV members but donations are welcome; £10 per trade union delegate. Space is
limited, so pre-registration will be important to guarantee a place.
