Belgium: Bolivarian revolution solidarity in full swing

Since the beginning of the middle class riots in Venezuela, the Hands of Venezuela campaign in Belgium started to inform on a daily basis on the lies and distortions of the media.

This was well appreciated by the larger movement especially in the unions. Moreover together with other groups like ARLAC, Colectivo Zudaka, Intal, Comabe protest actions were organised to challenge the right wing oppositionists in Brussels (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.666805730025358&type=1) and in Antwerpen (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10201610200477534&set=t.753322047&type=1&theater) .

Thanks to this we established good links with activists in the Netherlands who launched the Vrienden van Venezuela (Friends of Venezuela -https://www.facebook.com/VriendenVanVenezuela?fref=ts).

To commemorate the 1st year of Hugo Chavez death a well attended (more than 200 people) homage was held in the centre of the capital with speeches, a common declaration of all the solidarity groups and cultural activities (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.671845942854670&type=1).

In another city, Turnhout, a movie was shown about Hugo Chavez (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.672690909436840&type=1).

Later in the month (29/3) a local left-wing socio-cultural organisations (Masereelhuis) in St-Niklaas will organise an evening with short documentaries about the process of revolution and counterrevolution in Venezuela. A representative of HOV will comment on the current events and how to organised further solidarity.
