In 2004 I remember sitting in one of the minibuses that take the more well-heeled residents of Porto Alegre in Brazil from the centre to the suburbs, when the bus was stopped by the police outside the massive Gigantinho stadium and a long convoy of cars passed us. In one of them I saw Hugo Chávez. I shouted “Presidente Chávez” and the whole bus jumped up to catch a sight and take photos.

- Luke Stobart: Venezuela at the crossroads: Voices from inside the revolution
International Socialism Journal nr. 126, apr 10 – side 19
Note: In recent years Venezuela has been the centre of attention for much of the international left, since mass mobilisations defeated a military coup and oil industry lockout, and left wing President Hugo Chávez famously launched his plan to create “socialism in the 21st century”. However, previous analyses in this journal have shown the revolution is at a key junction, with increased disenchantment in the population due to corruption, bureaucratisation and the slow pace of change which has reopened the door to victory for the right wing opposition in referendums and regional elections.

- Mike Gonzalez: Chavez ten years on
International Socialism Journal nr. 121, jan 09 – side 49

This time the vote was for state governors, mayors and representatives to Venezuela’s 24 state assemblies. Just over 65 percent of those eligible registered their choice on the new electronic voting machines. The very high turnout was a sign that the election was much more than a vote for local officials. It had become, instead, a vote of confidence in Chavez himself.
- Mike Gonzalez: Venezuela: Election reveals growing tensions

The defeat for Hugo Chavez’s referendum on a new constitution in December was of the second sort. But if the lessons are not learnt quickly, the ground will be laid for a defeat of the first sort.

- Mike Gonzalez: Venezuela: many steps to come
International Socialism Journal nr. 104, sep 04 – side 65
Note: Venezuela’s upper classes have tried three times to overthrow the government of Hugo Chavez, most recently with the referendum in August. On each occasion they hoped US backing would guarantee them success. On each occasion mobilisations of the country’s lower classes defeated their schemes. But there is still enormous confusion internationally about what is really happening in Venezuela. Mike Gonzalez looks at where Chavez came from, what his movement represents and the mobilisations in support of it. He argues that the reforms made so far can only be defended by further, revolutionary, developments.
