rally outside Bolivar Hall in London

Despite the cold and windy weather, about 50 people gathered outside Bolivar Hall in London in support of the Bolivarian revolution and in opposition to any attempts to organise a coup or sabotage the constitutional reform referendum in Venezuela. The lively rally has been called by Hands off Venezuela.

I just got back from the rally. Red balloons, caps and t-shirts abounded. A great turn-out in support of the revolution. Unprovoked, about 3 opposition folks had a word or two for the Chavista crowd – one, a well dressed older woman, was particularly hysterical and aggressively shouted at us saying that if we loved what was happening in Venezuela so much, we should move there! Ok! If she foots the bill! Another, slightly more calm, said we shouldn’t meddle in their affairs and shouldn’t wear red caps and t-shirts from Venezuela if we weren’t Venezuelan. Hmmmm…not the greatest reasoning! I remain unconvinced! As usual, they are never coherent, they never base their arguments on facts but the opposition just show their venom against revolutionary democracy.

Big babies!

Patria o muerte!

  2. I just had a great argument with my wife who is from western South America. We’re in Virginia USA watching the coverage on Univision out of Miami US. Mi Espanol no es bueno. They’re doing the man on the street interview in Miami in addition to the shots of Caracas streets. My wife an I become of microcosm, shouting Si / No at each other. She is convinced that socialism is not democracy, even if people vote for it. Ah well. She’s a tough old hide, but I love her anyway.

    Appreciate the reports.
