Internationally, the Venezuelan government and grassroots movements have taken lead building a path for sovereignty and liberation of all peoples. The Bolivarian Socialist Revolution under the symbol of Hugo Chavez, has guaranteed a plethora of social services through state missions, nationalized industries like oil production and has permitted that Venezuela engage and develop relationships with nations across the globe from the African to Asian continents without the interference of US intervention and international powers. The elections on October 7th, look toward a consolidation of the people's process and defined a transition towards socialism. Every day, the people take to the streets, organizing and marching in the name of their political process, their collectives, community counsels, Red Points and at forums. And granted the large absence in US mass media, it's up to alternative media, community organizations and solidarity networks to create venues for the people's narrative to tell their story. Jeanette Charles, Chiapas Support Committee--LA, is on the ground in Venezuela for these elections and with Tanya Cole, Witness for Peace-SW, will facilitate a webinar on the history of Venezuela's revolutionary process and the historical moment Venezuela is living facing these elections. (There will also be an announcement about how to become an election monitor in the Honduran 2012/2013 elections) We hope that you will join us.
