A few months ago, Venezuela’s Marxist president, Hugo Chavez, faced little opposition and was a near certainty to be returned in the December 3rd election.
Now Manuel Rosales is pushing Chavez hard in the polls and has led a series of huge anti-Chavez rallies in several Venezuelan cities.

The Latin American and indeed the world wide left realises that this election is a crucial one. If Chavez wins, revolutionary forces will continue to pick off the few remaining non socialist countries in the region. The USA will face revolutionary forces on the Rio grande. If Manuel Rosales wins, the left will suffer a huge moral and material set back. Freedom on the continent will have a chance.

The National Directors of the Communist Party of Venezuela, within the framework of the final offensive for December 3, call upon Venezuelan towns, revolutionary forces, and communists to organize and mobilize for the consolidation of the triumph of the candidacy of Commander Hugo Chavez Frias and to dissuade any adventurer that tries to promote imperialism and reaction against the overwhelming popular victory that is approaching in December.
The PCV, on the basis of its analysis of the political situation in the country, considers that the conditions for an overwhelming victory of the candidacy of President Chavez exist.
Let’s hope, that for the sake of 250 million people that Chavez and the PCV can be stopped in their tracks.
