Death of Chavez

Chávez' legacy: the defense of capital and the deception of the impoverished masses

All the governments that lamented Chávez’s demise were all united in their grief at the loss of the state boss in whose name a ‘struggle against poverty’ and for ‘social justice’ took place, who, over the course of 14 years, carried out a project in the interests of a good part of the bourgeoisie, aimed at attacking the proletariat's living conditions and consciousness. They, along with the leading representatives of the national capital, whether officials or ‘opposition’, recognised that this was an excellent opportunity to make propaganda about ‘the world's solidarity with the Venezuelan people’ and to puff themselves up by exalting the international significance of their ‘great leader’.

This article by the ICC's section in Venezuela examines the reality behind the myth of the "socialism of the 21st century".
