The revolution delayed: a decade of Hugo Chavez

9 février 2009

The Commune has published a translation of a discussion between French anarchist ‘Charles Reeve’ and two members of the El libertario group in Caracas. It offers a stark insight into the contradictions of the Chavista regime.

Arguing against illusions in the state-capitalist government, the comrades argue that Chavismo and the mythology of the “Bolivarian revolution” conceal a raft of neo-liberal reforms and attacks on workers’ rights, and that we must break out of the dynamics of Chávez vs. the opposition in order to build an autonomous working-class alternative.
