Dec. 2nd: National Venezuela Solidarity Day

A number of U.S.-based organizations are calling for Friday, December 2nd (the anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine) to be observed as National Venezuela Solidarity Day.

For Bay Area folks, we're showing a film that day: the documentary "Venezuela from Below", featuring interviews with dozens of Venezuelan grassroots organizers, and join in a discussion afterwards with activists from the solidarity movement Hands Off Venezuela. I'll show a few slides too :-). Hope you can make it! And if you're too far away, consider making Dec. 2nd a day to start a conversation with someone about Venezuela, or maybe write a letter to the editor...

*** On National Venezuela Solidarity Day ***
*** December 2nd, 2005 ***

Join us in learning about Venezuela’s social movements and people power!

Venezuela from Below
A film by Dario Azzellini and Oliver Ressler / 67 min., 2004
Film Screening and Discussion

Friday, Dec. 2nd, 7 pm
El Primer Pueblo Librería
410 E. Santa Clara St., San Jose, CA

In Venezuela, a profound social transformation identified as the Bolivarian process has been underway since Hugo Chávez was elected president in 1998.

But this process is not the work of one leader. It has grown from the participation of millions of ordinary Venezuelans who are struggling to bring about change.

For the first time, hear the voices of the true actors in the Bolivarian process: the grassroots.

** On December 2nd, 2005, the anniversary of the Monroe Doctrine, people around the country will gather in solidarity with the people of Venezuela, rejecting the interventionist U.S. strategy laid out in the Monroe Doctrine and still being pushed today. Join us in supporting Venezuelans' right to democratically choose their own government! http://www.ushov.org **
