Hands Off Venezuela National Conference 2007

With the need for international solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution never having been greater, the third annual national conference of the Hands Off Venezuela campaign is happening on Saturday 24th November 2007 at University London Union. Come and play your part! Help defend the Venezuelan Revolution!

Ever since the re-election 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 Bolivarian Revolution.

We are holding our third annual conference on Saturday 24th November 2007 at University London Union, Malet Street, London WC1, from 9.45am to 5.30pm. Entrance is free for members but donations are welcome; £10 per trade union delegate. Space is limited, so pre-registration will be important to guarantee a place.
