With all due respect to Jorge, whose done major work in publicizing the gains of the Venezuelan Revolution, I think this article rather 
sucked. The article was written by Tom Rollins. It's more of a CMR/IMT rah-rah article, something almost akin to what you might read in 
The Militant newspaper from the US SWP.

Marxist.com does have a really fascinating article on this meeting, or one of them, that Watler Lippman posted the link to here:

This article, written by...Jorge himself, is an excellent, well rounded article with imbedded clips of TV interveiws, a fine analysis, etc. It was 
in fact, quite moving. The Tom Rollings piece was mostly aimed, it seems, at IMT members and doesn't really serve much of a purspose 
other than to puff up the IMT.

Jorge, more of the former, less of the latter :)
