Venezuela's young militants: An antidote to the weaknesses of the revolution

by Tamara Pearson from LINKS - International Journal of Socialist Renewal 30 July 2008 We stayed up until 2 am two nights in a row - students from a range of faculties, and young people from various movements and revolutionary organisations. In the campsite of La Mucuy in the Andean city of Merida, we discussed and debated the role of youth in Venezuelan’s revolution and the construction of a youth wing of the PSUV (United Socialist Party of Venezuela), while around us clouds hugged the buildings and mountain slopes, horses slept in the foreground and mosquitos made meals of our legs and faces.
