Rally for Venezuela

As you know, Venezuela has been at the forefront of the progressive changes in Latin America in recent years that have given so many people hope and belief that a better world is possible, where people are put first. At our June 4 Rally for Venezuela,  we will be hearing from a range of leading speakers from across the Left, labour and progressive movements not only on why we need to defend Venezuela against US intervention, but also what lessons we can learn from Latin America. You can register for free here to hear the latest from participants including:
  • Jeremy Corbyn MP
  • Neil Findlay MSP who recently left the Scottish Shadow Cabinet 
  • Lindsey German of the Stop the War Coalition
  • Derek Wall, international spokesperson for the Green Party
  • Grahame Morris MP of Labour Friends of Venezuela
  • Kate Hudson of CND
  • newly elected Labour MP Richard Burgon & many more.

Best wishes and I hope you can join us all on June 4,
Matt Willgress, VSC National Co-ordinator
