Venezuela Embassy event in London

The US helped by Blair are keen to destablise the Chavez government in Venezuela. The US has removed numerous Latin American governments, with literally millions killed if you add up Chile 11th September, 1973, various coups in Guatamala, the contra war in Nicaragua.

Coming soon the Greg Grandin interview on Empire's Workshop his new book on US policy in Latin America.

Here is a great speech by Chavez on the dangers of global warming and the great car economy

The US have a big soft propaganda war going against Chavez calling him a dictator, a showman, depressing that the Guardian and Independent echo this press coverage of Venezuela yesterday.

Chavez is only as good or as bad as popular participation in Venezuela, Venezuela is corupt, crime ridden, chaotic and polluted...however for the first time you have a government which represents the poor in the barrios, that is looking to a 21st socialism based on workers control, ecology and justice for women.

No wonder Bush and for that matter Hilary Clinton want the country to go back to its elite rulers.

Opposition to US intervention is a very important political task. So please join the Venezuela Information Centre and learn more at events such as the one below.
