Alan Woods’ stirring speech and coherent argument at a
meeting of about 150 people at the UEA massively boosted the interest of
students and youth in the Venezuelan Revolution, thus proving the huge
potential in this 21st century revolution for invigorating and giving hope to
the workers and youth of the world.
Over 100 students and trade unionists welcomed John McDonnell to the University of East Anglia on the 9th February. The large turnout from what is an extremely ‘depoliticised' campus, clearly demonstrated that the youth are not apathetic.
Ronny Pante continued his speaking tour of UK universities at the University of East Anglia in Norwich on 26th October, continuing to prove that youth in Britain feel solidarity and excitement towards the revolutionary movement in Venezuela. The mood at the meeting was eager, with a great deal of questions on how we can make our own desire for a transition from capitalism to socialism concrete.
