REPORTBACK FROM VENEZUELA
Portland delegates returning from the World Festival
of Youth and Students held in Caracas from August
7-15th, will share photos, stories and analyses from
the event. Held periodically since 1948, this year's
festival attracted 15,000 youth from over 100
countries, who debated strategies for building a more
just and equitable world.
Delegates Megan Hise, Robinette Jones and Lila Zucker
will provide firsthand accounts of the exciting
changes taking place in Venezuela under Hugo Chavez's
presidency. They will offer insight into the reality
of Venezuela's urban poor and the growing resistance
to the model of corporate globalization and military
intervention promoted by the Bush administration.
The Venezuelan social movement today represents the
best organized resistance to corporate globalization
in the Americas.
