On September 28, long time Venezuelan revolutionary Roland Denis 
published an article entitled “Goodbye to Chavismo” on the left wing 
public media forum Aporrea.org. Denis argues that Chavismo as a movement 
has reached its end point, corroded by the structures of the 
bureaucratic state, which Chávez failed to transform. With nearly 44,000 
reads, the article sparked a heated controversy, provoking dozens of 
responses from across the spectrum of the Venezuelan left. One such 
response by Luigino Bracci aims to show through the power of a real life 
anecdote that Chavismo remains an emancipatory horizon for much of 
Venezuela’s poor and downtrodden who regard the corrupt, bureaucratic 
petro-state as part of the oppressive legacy bequeathed by the 
oligarchic Fourth Republic that must be overcome. In what follows, VA 
presents translations of both articles.
