RAAN organizer Nachie, who has just returned from a two month
stay in Venezuela, will be discussing the implications of Hugo
Chavez' "Bolivarian Revolution" on the developing revolutionary
potential both within and outside of the country. This discussion will focus on areas of contradiction within the revolutionary process and the ecological, indigenous, social, ideological, and international issues that they reflect. Special attention will be paid to the current state of the international Venezuela "solidarity" movement and how/why anarchists and communists should be prepared to intervene in it. In addition we will be relating issues in Venezuela directly to struggles against mountaintop removal coal mining in the United States, and using this as a platform to discuss wider issues of capitalist infrastructure consolidation.
