Venezuelan Trade Unionists to address Occupy LSX “Bank of Ideas”

Across Europe, governments are cutting back on public services with ordinary people paying for an economic crisis they did not create.

Progressive governments in Latin America are showing that there are real alternatives to cuts and privatisation.

Venezuela is today led by one of the most progressive and democratic governments in the world. Under Hugo Chávez, free healthcare and
education and much more have been introduced to put people first, reversing decades of neo-liberalism that left more than half the population living in poverty despite Venezuela’s huge oil wealth.

Venezuelan trade unionists Egle Sanchez and Nelson Fernandez will discuss these social gains at @Occupylondon “Bank of Ideas”.
