MichaelFoxCarlosMartinez.jpgPresident Hugo Chavez has been the public face of Venezuela's Bolivarian Revolution to the international community since his election in 1998 - but we have heard little about the people at the grassroots level who are moving forward this inspiring revolutionary experiment. What are the origins of these movements and the people who lead them? What is their relationship to Chavez, his United Socialist Party and the existing government bureaucracy? Authors Carlos Martinez and Michael Fox provide insight into the lives and work of activists from Indigenous, Afro-Venezuelan, Women's movements and beyond in their new book Venezuela Speaks! Voices from the Grassroots hot off the presses from PM Press.
