Progressive governments have matched economic growth with social inclusion, showing free education and health for all is possible.

Venezuela has been at the forefront of this progressive change with its policies for ‘Socialism of the 21st Century.’ The government of Hugo Chavez has won more elections than nearly any other government in the world as a result of social policies to drastically reduce poverty and inequality by sharing the nation’s oil wealth. Women’s equality and anti-racism have also been at the centre of this change, in addition to a commitment to international justice, peace and solidarity.

Venue: University of London Union – ULU. Malet Street, WC1E 7HY London
