His visit is the first major West Coast tour of a leader of the Venezuelan UNT. We hope it will be the first of many exchanges between Venezuelan and American trade unionists. To make this possible, the Hands Off Venezuela Campaign has launched a fund raising drive to cover the many expenses of the tour. Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and can be sent to:

4579 18th St.
San Francisco, CA 94114
Donations can also be made online by clicking here.

Volunteers are also needed to help organize and prepare for these events. Contact us if you are able help out in any way. Letters of support or endorsements of the tour are also appreciated and can be sent to sfbay@ushov.org.
