This December, witness one of the most important elections in the history of Venezuela, and of the hemisphere. On December 6, the people of Venezuela will exercise their right to vote and decide whether to carry forward the Bolivarian Revolution through the election of a new National Assembly.


This will be one of the most closely watched elections in the world for all that the Bolivarian Revolution represents. Come witness it from the inside and lend your solidarity to the people of Venezuela as they shape their own future, in the face of escalating aggression from the US, which has proclaimed Venezuela as an “unusual and extraordinary threat,” by national decree, as well as an “economic war” against the people waged by the country’s elite, with external support.


Participants in this solidarity delegation will learn about Venezuela’s electoral process and witness participatory democracy in action through meetings with community councils and other grassroots groups in Caracas and the neighboring states of Aragua and Miranda. The group will get a first-hand glimpse of the various areas of social transformation taking place in Venezuela, including in education, healthcare, food sovereignty, and alternative media. The delegation will also include trips to touristic sites of interest.


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!”
