Hugo Chavez was one of the few leaders of the Global South who championed the cause of independence and sovereignty against imperialism of our peoples in the homelands, and also struggled for their rights to collectively control the wealth from the land and our labour. He was one of the few to give political leadership on the international struggle, a leadership which is severely lacking and needed in the world today.
This event seeks bring together our specific challenges of anti-imperialist internationalism in the context of these islands, of which the Irish Easter Uprising of 1916 is the most important political event, and how the leadership of Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela informs these tasks.
This is is an event jointly organised by the Tri-Continental Anti-Imperialist Platform (antiimperialist.net, website to be launched shortly) and the Let Freedom Ring! coalition (www.theglassishalffull.co.uk), the latter of whom will be having their london launch as the first hour and half part of this event.
This is a free event, which will also have limited free food and drink. donations will be requested, we don't expect people attending to be stingy with the donations :)
