Venezuela Bolivariana Workshop Approved for U.S. Social Forum

Ace facilitates cross-border workshop at US Social Forum with Venezuela Media Activists from Voces Urgentes called “Venezuela Bolivariana: Building Revolution From Community.”



Full Description:

Facilitated through direct dialogue with participants in local Venezuelan social movements and organizations, this workshop will discuss important advances in the successful construction of popular and local power in Venezuela, emphasizing the importance of the role of territoriality and a renewing movement that insists that communities are to be the front of the national politics. We will explore experiences of collective construction with urban communities in Caracas, the development of socialist communes, youth activism, and the community media movement. Through the presentation of audiovisuals and rounds of interchange and discussion about concrete experiences both in the US and Venezuela, we hope to share a side of the revolutionary process in Venezuela that goes beyond its government, parties and institutions and create lasting ties with similar popular movements in the United States that can re-enforce popular and local movements in all of nuestra amerika, from Alaska to the Patagonia
