Venezuela today is led by one of the most progressive governments in the world, putting people first and acting regionally and globally as a voice for peace and social justice.
In particular, under the Chávez-led government, education has been expanded dramatically, transforming the lives of millions. Free education – up to HE level – is a right, and Venezuela now has the 2nd highest % of students in university regionally, with progressive students recently organising a mass demonstration IN FAVOUR of government education policy.
However, these and other social changes are under threat from US imperialism and a right-wing oligarchy within the country.
Come to find out more about what we can do to offer our solidarity, including:
* Eye-witness accounts of a recent delegation to Venezuela
* Update on recent developments from a Venezuelan speaker, including on how Venezuela is developing free education for all.
* Organising activities on campuses in support of Venezuela including film showings of Oliver Stone’s South of the Border
