Mr Curran goes to Caracas

1044311_10200892792514852_1317988756_n Warwick Labour Committee Member Dominic Curran was lucky enough to visit Caracas, the capital of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela recently. Dominic, who writes about his experience for Left Futures here, was also quoted in the Venezuelan Information and Communication Ministry’s publication, el Correo de Orinoco (in Spanish). Dom told Correo of his trip with the Venezuelan Solidarity Campaign: ‘We are pleasantly surprised to see how involved young Venezuelans are in politics and social movements. In Venezuela we can see a strong connection between the youth and their government, which is not something you see in the UK.’ Dominic, a standard-bearer for the left of the party in Warwick Labour, is now determined to apply what he has learnt of the Bolivarian Revolution to help Labour’s cause in this country. Venezuela has faced some criticism over its political processes, and has some economic and social problems, but its elections have been praised by former US President Jimmy Carter, veteran of polls the world over. We are sure that Warwick Labour will be stronger and richer for Dom’s experience in the home of Chavismo as we too try to create a socialism for the 21st century.
