Chavez the Radical XXI: socialism must be created at the grassroots level

Originally published: Tatuy Televisión Comunistaria (April 24, 2019)

Who in their right mind would say that today Venezuela is a socialist country? No…we’d be fooling ourselves. We’re in a country that still lives in capitalism, it’s just that we’ve started on a path…

In 2009 Hugo Chávez met with grassroots community activists from Venezuela´s communal councils to discuss the construction of a socialism and the necessity for the development of and articulation between communes.

It’s something you can’t create by decree. It has to be created at the grassroots level. It’s a creation of the people.
