A major trade union initiative
Off in solidarity with Venezuela has been launched by the Hands Off Venezuela campaign. Coinciding with the celebration of International Workers' day, HandsVenezuela is promoting an "Open letter to US trade unionists
" (see in Spanish
). The appeal comes after the recent belligerent statements
and attacks on President Chavez on the part of the representatives of the Bush Administration, which, according to Jorge Martin, HOV international secretary, "pose a direct threat to the working people of Venezuela". If you are a trade unionist, please sign the open letter! Click here
