Report: Jorge Martin in Portland, OR
Tuesday, 20 May 2008

On May 6th, in Portland Oregon at Liberty Hall the Portland Central America Solidarity Committee (PCASC) hosted Jorge Martin, International Secretary of Hands Off Venezuela (HOV). Roughly 25 attendees listened attentively as Jorge described the beginnings of the Bolivarian Process, the leading the role of the masses in pushing it forward, the revolutions accomplishments and challenges, and some promising developments such as the recent nationalization of SIDOR and the growth of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) that can play an important role toward the winning of socialism.


Questions ranged from Chavez's alleged "cult of personality", to the role of women in the revolution, the revolutions effect on Cuba, and the lessons we can draw from Venezuela's example for the struggles we face in North America. Many commented on how much they learned from Jorge's informed and articulate lecture and answers and the event has helped to excite local activists about the prospects of Venezuela solidarity work.
