Revolutionary solidarity

On Thursday October 20, around 40 people from different solidarity groups gathered at 43 Below Bar & Restaurant in Perth to listen to Daniel Gasparri, Charge d’ Affairs of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela Embassy in Canberra.

An update was delivered on Venezuela currently under attack by the violent right wing opposition. A discussion that followed also highlighted the attacks on other progressive governments in Latin America.

The opposition in Venezuela is pushing for a referendum with the aim of ousting President Maduro from government. The economic war on the Bolivarian Revolution targets the people to create the impression of an internal crisis and a failed state.

Similar tactics have been used by right wing oppositions in Honduras, Paraguay and most recently in Brazil where the parliamentary coup d’ état removed President Dilma Rousseff from the presidency.

Discussion on the need to re-establish and/or strengthen the solidarity work with the Bolivarian revolution was high on the agenda. The people gathered in Perth pledged to start working on the urgent task of defending the government of President Maduro and his government.

Daniel Gasparri visited workplaces and met with Mick Buchan CFMEU state branch secretary as well as with other interested parties and community groups such as the Communist Party of Australia, Socialist Alliance and the Australia-Cuba Friendship Society, ACFS.
