Sorting through all this confusion on groups.

1. Marea Socialista was a wing of the PSUV lead by near-USFI supporters
(NPA-France, SA/Solidarity-US). They split years ago from the PSUV where
they had been a tendency and are in opposition to the PSUV and the right
wing.

2. PSL. No relation the US Marcyite group, with the same name. This group
is affiliated to the "UIT-CI" which is one of the main still remaining
"Morenoist" tendencies in Latin America today. There are *several* of these
Morenoist and ex-Morenoist currents. All have representation in Venezuela
and, Mexico among other countries. PSL is "notorious" because Orlando
Chiriono, leading dissident unionist and militant, who some years ago,
split with other independent Chavista trade unionists to unite with the
"AFL-CIA" Venezuela Federation of Workers against Chavez. They are VERY
anti-gov't. This group has a small representation in the US in the form of
a few individuals.

3. Left Voice has no relations whatsoever with this above noted group in
Venezuela. Left Voice is associated with the "non-Morenoist" and early
split from the original Morenoist international, the LIT-CI, to form the
PTS, now the largest Trotskyist group in Argentina today (or in the Western
Hemisphere for that matter). The international current THIS group is
affiliated with is called the FT-CI or Trotskyist Faction-Fourth
International. It's affiliate in Venezuela is the Workers League for
Socialism. Here is a translation of what this group has to say about
Venezuela:
