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.
