On Monday May 21, there was a foiled attempt against the life of comrade Abraham Rivas. Rivas is General Secretary of the National Union of Workers of Helados EFE (SINATRASOHE) as well as General Secretary of the recently created National Federation of Workers in Food, Beverages and Other Companies (FENACTRALBECA), which organizes workers in 21 different companies belonging to Grupo POLAR. He is also a revolutionary Bolivarian activist and a supporter of the Marxist tendency Lucha de Clases.

On April 12th, around 70 people gathered at a Hands Off Venezuela meeting at Bolivar Hall in London to commemorate the 10 year anniversary of the defeat of the counter-revolutionary coup against Hugo Chavez, President of Venezuela. The meeting served as the premiere of ‘Cuarto Poder’, a documentary summarising the negative portrayal of the President Chavez in the Spanish media and the reasons for this negative bias.
