The U.S. Hands Off Venezuela Campaign invites you to hear Luis Primo, a central leader of the Venezuelan National Union of Workers (UNT), the new labor federation in Venezuela which has replaced its corrupt predecessor which supported the U.S.-backed attempted coup against President Chavez. Luis Primo will address the antiwar rally on Saturday, March 18 and will speak at VARIOUS public meetings in the Bay Area during March.
Currently, Primo is a Regional Coordinator for the UNT (Caracas-Miranda). He organizes for the UNT on the national level, and works with the Ministry of Labor on the Committee for Recovered Factories. Primo will be running for the National Leadership of the UNT at its upcoming congress this spring.
The US HOV Campaign is organized around the principle that the people of Venezuela should be able to determine their own destiny, without the interference of foreign governments, particularly the U.S. government. We have organized numerous educational events to inform people in this country about the important events unfolding in Venezuela so that people here can have an informed position. Without the truth, people are in no position to act.
