A Chávez Amor y Lealtad, con el Pueblo Luchar y Luchar
6/1/2013 · Corriente Revolucionaria Bolívar y Zamora (CRBZ)
Al Pueblo Pobre Venezolano y Nuestroamericano A los Pobres del Campo y la Ciudad: trabajadores, campesinos, juventud popular, habitantes de barrios, pueblos y caseríos A la Fuerza Armada Nacional Bolivariana A los Patriotas, Progresistas y Revolucionarios Queridos Hermanos y compañeros de lucha. Comienza un nuevo año, quizás, en la situación más dramática que le ha tocado enfrentar a nuestro Pueblo desde 1830. Allá en esa fecha, quedó sepultada temporalmente la Independencia nacional en la quinta de San Pedro Alejandrino un 17 de diciembre, cuando el libertador apagó su llama libertaria en medio de la soledad y la incomprensión. Tuvieron que pasar 162 años para que Bolívar retornara junto a los suyos, a Sucre a Miranda, a Simón Rodríguez, a Ezequiel Zamora y su … [read more]
Declaration of Principles
Bolivar y Zamora
BOLÍVAR AND ZAMORA REVOLUTIONARY CURRENT (CRBZ) DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES We are a sum of wills brought together by a great commitment, filled with passion for and love of the Bolivarian Revolution. We are, above all else, men, women, groups, organizations, and collectives, highly aware of the quota of responsibility that we bear in this historic moment of transformations and the arrival of the Patria Nueva, or New Homeland. We understand that Revolution is a question of making dreams into realities, and this is precisely the great challenge of the Bolivarian Revolution: make into a tangible reality the proposed historical and cultural project of our Revolutionary Program, the SIMON BOLIVAR NATIONAL PROJECT. This requires of us revolutionaries a conscious, creative and steady … [read more]
Class struggle in Bolivarian Venezuela
Our stomach turns when we do a visual count of the damages caused by the merciless rains of recent days. It’s just that figures alone don’t allow for a full comprehension of the catastrophe’s characteristics – in figures there is a cold rational that isn’t understood until one sees concrete faces, the faces of little kids scared and searching for answers amongst such despair. Wrinkles and colors of our People, the poor, asking ourselves how damn long will we be the everlasting protagonists of natural disasters? And while the answer is simple, it is urgent that we ideologically alphabetize at this precise moment, at the center of this crisis, and expose the great unmasked guilty party in front of cameras and in front of consciousnesses. The guilt lies with capitalism, the … [read more]
Chavez calls for 5th socialist International
In this regard, we want to sign the Commitment of Caracas as a revolutionary guide for the challenges ahead of us. We have gathered with the aim of unifying criteria and giving concrete answers that allow us to defend our sovereignty, our social victories, and the freedom of our peoples in the face of the generalized crisis of the world capitalist system and the new threats spreading over our region and the whole world with the establishment and strengthening of military bases in the sister republics of Colombia, Panama, Aruba, Curacao, the Dutch Antilles, as well as the aggression against Ecuadorian territory, and the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan.

2007-2014: A new bolivarian mandate for president Hugo Chávez
President Chavez' antiimperialist strive, that has brought about outstanding social and democratic progress above all for the poor, can count on broad support within the country. Hence, the slogan of the Bolivarian popular movement on the forthcoming elections is: 10 million votes for a new revolutionary mandate.We intend to join this slogan with our voice of international solidarity. In fact, one strong aspect of Hugo Chavez' presidency is his country's solidarity with the peoples of the world. President Chavez continuously pointed out the crimes of the Guantánamo camp of torture, the occupation terror in Iraq, the threathening of war against Iran and last but not least the Israeli state terrorism against the Palestinian and the Lebanese people.As a sign of supporting the … [read more]
The Meaning of 21st Century Socialism for Venezuela
By: Gregory WilpertSource: According to Chavez, this socialism would be different from the socialism of the 20th century. While Chavez was vague about exactly how this new socialism would be different, he implied it would not be a state socialism as was practiced in the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe or as is practiced in Cuba today. Rather, it would be a socialism that would be more pluralistic and less state-centered. "We have assumed the commitment to direct the Bolivarian Revolution towards socialism and to contribute to the socialist path, with a new socialism, a socialism of the 21st century, which is based in solidarity, in fraternity, in love, in justice, in liberty, and in equality," said Chavez in another speech in mid 2006.[1] Also, this … [read more]
For an Anti-imperialist Front: let's realize the proposal of the President!
   Those who searched for clear answers within the usual multitude if the Social Forums - this time "polycentric" with Caracas as the point of Latin American reference - had to wait for the closing speech of Hugo Chavez, president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela:  "Also you will respect our autonomy to express what we think: I think that we have to push the Forum to form a big global movement as an anti-imperialist alternative comprising the entire world which got the capability of connexion, of growth, of struggle. I also believe that we have already taken some steps in this direction. We run the risk of a folklorization of the Forum. A Forum which discusses and debates without conclusions, for example, for me seems at least strange … if it … [read more]
