The next 6 weeks are a crucial time to show your solidarity with Venezuela. President Chavez has a significant poll lead for the October 7 Election but there are concerns that the democratic will of the Venezuelan people at the coming elections will not be respected by elements of the right-wing opposition. Come to this rally to show your solidarity!
