Happy New Year from the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign!

 SVSG logo 300

2015 marks 10 years of the Venezuela Solidarity Campaign and with elections approaching at the end of the year in Venezuela - plus the U.S stepping up sanctions and hostility - we will be making it our most active yet.
Below you can find details of our two major national events this year including the Second Annual Hugo Chávez Memorial Lecture on February 26 and other events coming up.
As well as attending events, you can show your solidarity with Venezuela by making a donation to our Special Appeal, joining the VSC and lobbying your MP to speak out against proposed U.S sanctions on Venezuela .

Best wishes,
Matt Willgress, VSC National Co-ordinator.
