[RCG 07.10.12] On Saturday 6 October 2012, the day before the crucial presidential elections in Venezuela, members of the Revolutionary Communist Group took to the streets in Kilburn, North West London, in support of the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela, where people are rising up to defend the gains they have won over the last ten years. The event also celebrated the revolutionary legacy of Ernesto 'Che' Guevara, on the 45th anniversary of his death in combat.
The rally later joined a march of the Counihan-Sanchez campaign, led by the family members themselves. The family have been made homeless by Brent council after their housing benefit was stopped, part of the brutal push to cut welfare spending in Britain. They are fighting back and have built a vibrant campaign highlighting their case but making common cause with all people fighting for housing as a basic right.
Victory to the Counihan Campaign! Housing for all!
Viva Venezuela and the Bolivarian Revolution!
Viva Cuba! Viva socialism!
