“The crisis of the capitalist system has provoked the indignados movement [the ‘outraged’, as they are known in Spain] that has arisen in one country after another across the globe,” Elisa Osori, a national directorate member of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV) said.
The PSUV is a mass party headed by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. A revolutionary process in Venezuela is redistributing the nation’s oil wealth, bring industries and resources under public ownership and promoting direct, participatory democracy.
Osori said: “Internationalism is characteristic of revolutions, and this is an opportunity to exercise it … This struggle is ours as well.”
On November 3, Apporea.org said United Socialist Party of Venezuela Youth (JPSUV) expressed its solidarity with the global movement of indignados.
The head of the PSUV’s electoral work, Heryck Rangel, said the capitalist system generated unemployment and few opportunities for the world’s youth — a situation that has compelled thousands of people to march for their rights.
He called on all Venezuelan youth to show solidarity with the indignados and “to show the world that only with socialism can we have a future and a good life”.
