In late August 2009, 23-year old revolutionary youth and student leader Heryck Rangel - President of the Youth Institute for Greater Caracas and a member of Chavez's United Socialist Party of Venezuela - spoke at campus meetings in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Perth and Melbourne hosted by the Cuba-Venezuela Solidarity Clubs. If you missed Heryck on his tour, you can watch his La Trobe University talk below.
War… climate catastrophe… economic collapse… our future looks bleak.
Yet two Third World countries in Latin America, Cuba and Venezuela, show that another, better world is possible if there is a revolutionary change in society.
Cuba and Venezuela show how it can be done. When millions of ordinary people rise up in revolution and take power from the corporate elites the door is opened to the construction of a new social order. A new society based on cooperation and social ownership of the key economic resources.
