  13. Witness Venezuela’s Elections This December-6, 2015‏

    This December, witness one of the most important elections in the history of Venezuela, and of the hemisphere. On December 6, the people of Venezuela will exercise their right to vote in elections for deputies to the country’s National Assembly. Voters will decide whether to carry forward the Bolivarian Revolution by retaining a Chavista majority in the National Assembly or return the political intitative to the traditional elites represented by most of the Democratic Unity Roundtable (MUD).

    The stakes are high. Venezuela has been in the forefront of regional integration and independence from U.S. hegemony and push back against the neoliberal agenda over the past sixteen years and it has supported the building of a multipolar world. It has also been a leading force, since Chavez was elected president in December 1998, against the further propogation of those free trade agreements that would compromise the public nature of human services and diminish the sovereignty of participating nations in favor of transnational corporate interests.

    Despite the current fall in petroleum prices, Venezuela has resisted austerity, declined to roll back progressive labor laws and the land reform, and increased social spending targeted to the most vulnerable sectors. For all of these reasons, this will be one of the most closely watched elections in the world. Come witness it from the inside and lend your solidarity to the people of Venezuela as they shape their own future, in the face of episodic attempts at extra constitutional regime change, escalating aggression from the US, which has proclaimed Venezuela as an “unusual and extraordinary threat” by executive order, as well as an “economic war” against the people waged by the country’s elite.

    Participants in this delegation will learn about Venezuela’s electoral process and witness participatory democracy in action through meetings with community councils and other grassroots groups in Caracas and the neighboring states of Aragua and Miranda. The group will get a first-hand glimpse of the various areas of social transformation taking place in Venezuela, despite the economic challenges, including in education, healthcare, food sovereignty, and alternative media. The delegation will also include trips to touristic sites of interest.

    Come see the real “threat” posed by Venezuela – as living proof that another world indeed is possible. As the Venezuelan people assert, “Venezuela is not a threat – we are hope!”

    US INTERVENTION is destabilising Venezuela and other progressive governments in the region, delegates at the Latin America Adelante conference heard at the weekend.

    Venezuelan ambassador Rocio Maneiro told the gathering on Saturday that her country is under fire more than any other socialist government on the continent.

    She said Venezuela had seen no sign of US President Barack Obama’s so-called friendly relations with Latin America.

    “President Obama signed the executive order saying that Venezuela presents a clear and present danger to the US,” said Ms Maneiro.

    Although stressing that Venezuela remains hopeful and will continue its fight against US intervention she urged British trade unions and “all those who fight for a better world” to lend their support.

    Nicaraguan ambassador Guisell Morales-Echeverry told delegates that the US had used metal prices to destabilise the economy as they had in Chile prior to the coup against socialist president Salvador Allende in 1973.

    She said that the US had tried to undermine the Sandinista government in Nicaragua following the overthrow of the Somoza dictatorship in 1979 by saying it consisted of “communists and socialists” representing a “threat to democracy.”

    But under the Sandinistas, Nicaragua wanted peace, she told delegates. But “it was clear that the US was not going to let us.”

    Ms Morales-Echeverry pointed out how former US president Ronald Reagan had declared at the start of the war in 1984: “I am a Contra” — referring to the US-backed far-right terrorist group which opposed the socialist government.

    “Thousands, including those who came in solidarity to build in Nicaragua, were killed,” she said.

    “In Nicaragua the US is trying to build an economic blockade. It’s been approved by Congress. It will happen.

    “Nicaragua stands in the frontline in solidarity with Venezuela.”
