On January 5, 2015 a newly elected National Assembly will take their seats in Venezuela. The U.S.-backed right-wing counter-revolutionary opposition will have a majority in this parliament for the first time since the election of the late Comandante Hugo Chavez in 1998. Since the December 6 election of this National Assembly, supporters of the Bolivarian Revolution led by President Nicolas Maduro and the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) have been in a constant state of mobilization and reflection. They are working to unite and strengthen forces in Venezuela to defend Bolivarian Revolution.

As the majority right-wing National Assembly takes office, their backers in imperialist countries, especially the United States, are increasing their meddling and intervention. They will continue their attacks in an attempt to destabilize Venezuela and reverse the tremendous gains made for poor, working and oppressed people by the Bolivarian Revolution.

In Vancouver peace-loving people will answer the call of President Maduro for unity, mobilization and reflection. There are actions around the world in solidarity with the Venezuelan Bolivarian Revolution, including in New York City by the Alberto Lovera Bolivarian Circle which is organizing a rally in front of the Venezuelan Embassy. We must continue to work together to build a broad movement in solidarity with the Bolivarian Revolution and mobilize on the streets to demand an end to foreign imperialist intervention in Venezuela!

Join the Fire This Time Venezuela solidarity campaign to defend the Bolivarian Revolution and its gigantic social, economical and political gains and demand:

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
