The Alberto Lovera Bolivarian Circle of New York invites historians, artists, videographers, writers, political analysts, and other activists who sympathize with the Bolivarian Revolution to join a delegation to Caracas, Venezuela this December. Witness:

communities organizing themselves in the face of manufactured food shortages to grow and distribute their own food

participatory democracy in action through community councils, ‘comunas’ and other forms of citizen organization

community-run art, media, education, health and nutrition efforts

alternative markets and fairs featuring homemade products and agroecologically produced foods

parks, natural areas, historic sites, and other reclaimed public spaces.

Come witness the efforts of the popular sectors to regroup and defend the political, economic and social rights guaranteed by the 1999 Constitution, even during a period in which a neoliberal agenda will likely dominate the legislative branch of government.

Come see the real “threat” posed by Venezuela – as living proof that another world indeed is possible. As the Venezuelan people assert, “Venezuela is not a threat – we are hope!”

When: December 5-15, 2016

Tentative itinerary: Start and end in Caracas; visits to the states of Miranda and Aragua.

Cost for activities: $1000. This will cover all lodging, all ground transportation, 2 meals per day, qualified trip leaders, and Spanish-English interpretation. Additional expenses during the trip will be minimal. Airfare not included. (Round trip flights to Venezuela from New York are available in the range of $333- $430.)
