Through the course of the three day fair four supporters of HOV and Socialist Appeal manned a stall selling various pieces of material including the Hands Off Venezuela magazine and Socialist Appeal journal. Hundreds of flyers for the Hands Off Venezuela campaign were distributed and over fifty names were registered as showing interest in setting up a Hands Off Venezuela society at the university.

 Glasgow student members of Hands off Venezuela

A number of students showed an interest in socialist ideas and the revolutionary process in Venezuela and were glad to see that there was an active solidarity campaign. The intervention offered a good opportunity to discredit many of the myths about socialism and in particular the lies about the Venezuelan revolution that are spread by the right wing media. Many students came to the stall with questions about events in Venezuela keen for access to an alternative perspective sympathetic to the revolution.

This gives HOV a solid grounding for future activity in Glasgow. We aim to register a society when this becomes available in October. Our first meeting is on the 30th September at Partick Burgh Halls on Burgh Halls street.. We will be discussing the recent moves towards a coup in Bolivia and Venezuela as well as HOV activity over the next year.
