Yesterday over 2000 workers marched to the National Assembly in Caracas in
support of increased workers’ control. Handing over a document with over
45,000 signatures, the workers demanded that the legislative body approve
the Special Law for Socialist Worker Councils and begin an immediate
discussion of a “new and revolutionary” Organic Work Law (LOT).  Both
demands were submitted under article 240 of the Venezuelan constitution,
which allows the people the right to legislate.

through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man

dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
