As part of their bi-monthly meeting, the Greater London Labour Representation Committee (LRC) invited the Hands Off Venezuela campaign to lead a discussion on the recent events that have taken place in Venezuela. The LRC, originally formed in 1900 to fight for political representation for the Labour Movement, was re-formed in 2004 to secure a voice for socialists within the trade unions, the Labour Party and Parliament. Will Roche from the HOV campaign gave a summary of events dating from the re-election of President Chavez in 2006, in particular, the development of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV).
