Cities throughout the U.S. will hold actions of solidarity between January 22nd and January 31st. Events to be held in Atlanta, Boston, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, New York, Philadelphia & Tucson.
The People of the U.S. declare: “WE ARE ALL CHAVEZ”.
Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets on January 10th throughout Venezuela to show their support for legally elected President Hugo Chavez as well as for the Bolivarian Revolution.
The right-wing oligarchy along with Washington is nonetheless using the excuse of Presidents Chavez health situation to demonize his administration and the movement for self-determination and freedom from oppression it represents.
In the U.S., the solidarity and progressive movement will organize National Days of Solidarity With Venezuela to send messages of good wishes to President Chavez and to let the people of Venezuela, especially the poor and working people who most benefit from the Bolivarian Revolution know that we will not allow the Obama administration to intervene in Venezuela.
