The Bolivarian Revolution: Enter the Oil Workers! (2005, 34 minutes)
Directed by Selma Jones & Nina Lopez
Produced by the Bolivarian Circle of the Global Women’s Strike
In these unique interviews, oil workers – women and men – tell how and why they saved their industry from a CIA-backed coup, how they see their struggle in relation to other working class people in the world, and how they are organizing with the community and the military to “put the oil industry at the service of humanity”.

So far the UShas backed a coup and an electoral referendum against the government of HugoChavez. The USgovernment does not speak for the people of this country when it tries toimpose its will on the people of another country. Join us to help build thismovement to defend Venezuela.
