Dear friends and comrades,

Last year in April, many of us watched in horror at the coup
against the elected government of Venezuela and rejoiced
when the people and the army restored that government to

For the purpose of promoting discussion of precisely what
the Bolivarian Revolution is all about, building a network
of solidarity with that process and celebrating the defeat
of the coup, an International Conference on Solidarity with
the Bolivarian Revolution will take place in Caracas from
10 to 13 April 2003.

In addition to a cultural and artistic celebration of the
victory over the coup, at the core of this event will be an
international forum on the achievements of the Bolivarian
Revolution, the enemies of that Revolution and the struggle
against neoliberal globalisation. Among forum participants
already confirmed are:

Abel Prieto (Minister of Culture, Cuba)
Evo Morales (Uruguay)
Bernard Cassen (ATTAC, France)
Fausto Bertinotti (Communist Refoundation Party, Italy)
Danielle Mitterand (France)
Ignacio Ramonet (Le Monde Diplomatique)
James Petras (USA)
Jose Bove (France)
Mark Weisbrot (USA)
Marta Harnecker (Chile)
Perry Anderson (UK)
Richard Gott (UK)
Susan George (USA)

Among those invited (but not yet confirmed) are
Atilio Boron, Eduardo Galeano, Frei Betto, Jose Saramago,
Leonardo Boff, Joseph Stiglitz, Nelson Mandela, Noam
Chomsky, Oliver Stone, Samir Amin, Theotonio Dos Santos,
Istvan Meszaros and Jesse Jackson.

Everyday, the enemies of the Bolivarian process continue
their attempt to restore neoliberalism and sham democracy to
Venezuela. Come to Caracas on 10-13 April to show your
solidarity with the Bolivarian process.
