SYDNEY — On March 31, the Australia-Venezuela Solidarity Network's Sydney committee annual general meeting forged plans for expanding the campaign to invite Venezuela's socialist president Hugo Chavez to tour Australia this year — an antidote to US President George Bush's scheduled September visit. Guest speaker Venezuelan charge d'affaires Nelson Davila underscored the popular changes transforming Venezuela out of poverty and towards socialism. The meeting also decided to embark on monthly films, forums or street actions in support of Venezuela to build momentum towards the Latin American and Asia Pacific International Solidarity Forum being held in Melbourne this October.
