Hugo Chavez Gathering

Wednesday, March 6, 2013 - 5:00pm - 8:00pm
Venezuelan Consulate, 7 East 51st Street, New York, NY

As many of you have heard, President Hugo Chavez passed away earlier today. As a community, we would like to show our condolences, and our support towards the Venezuelan people, by having a vigil at the Venezuelan Consulate on 51st and 5th Ave.

Furthermore, there have already been rumors of American intervention in Venezuela, as well as American officials being expelled due to suspicion of conspiracy. We would like to also denounce any intervention in the sovereignty of Venezuela, and exclaim that the future of Venezuela lies solely in the hands of the Venezuelan people.

At the moment this is an ad hoc effort of like-minded individuals: we are contacting Venezuelan solidarity groups for input. Please share on lists, tweet and FB and invite your friends!
