Hear a first-hand report from the historic Presidential elections that have just taken place in Venezuela which saw socialist President Hugo Chavez being voted in for a fourth term, with 54% of the vote and a record high voter turn out.

In the lead up to the elections, brigade participants from Australia and around the world took part in rallies in Caracas in which millions of people took to the streets in support of Chavez and the revolutionary process.

Jon Moore, recently returned from the 2012 Venezuela Solidarity Brigade, will share his experiences of the elections as well as visits the brigade made to a number of social missions that are part of the project of building socialism of the 21st century in Latin America.
