Activists from across Venezuela met this month to form the National
Communard Council, which aims to coordinate the country’s commune movement
and present its demands to the national government.

The council was formed in the western state of Lara during a three-day
meeting of about 2000 communards (commune members) from around the country.
Most represented a particular commune.
