MERLI VANEGAS – Venezuelan Consul General in Vancouver
Merli Vanegas is a Bolivarian and socialist lawyer. She initially
worked for the Bolivarian Government in the National Assembly, and has

Britannia Community Centre
1661 Napier St. at Commercial Dr.

On January 10th, hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets
throughout Venezuela to show their support for legally elected
President Hugo Chavez as well as for the Bolivarian Revolution.
Between January 22nd and January 31st, people around the world will do
the same and organize diverse events as part of an International Week
of Action in Solidarity with Venezuela.

After another decisive win by Hugo Chavez in the recent Venezuelan
Presidential Elections, the U.S. backed right-wing opposition in
Venezuela is trying to use his health situation to attack the
Bolivarian Revolution and set back the huge gains made by poor and
working people since Chavez was first elected in 1998.

Join Vancouver actions to demonstrate the huge love and solidarity
people around the world have for President Chavez, and also to help
educate people about the realities of the huge gains of the Bolivarian
Revolution in Venezuela!
