The tour, to run from Tuesday December 2nd to Saturday December 13th (inclusive) - will be a unique an opportunity to observe first-hand, learn about and be inspired by a grassroots movement that is transforming not only Venezuela, but all of Latin America, and is challenging the greed and destructiveness of global capitalism by showing that a better world is possible.
Caracas- Oct22, 2014
The 780 Venezuelan workers of Clorox Company- a US cleaning products firm- staged a workers takeover of the company’s assets after the owners abandoned production in Venezuela and fled to the USA, causing a mass, sudden lay off of their entire workforce and an illegal closure. Workers, with State support, promised to reactivate and expand production.
“The owners of Clorox abandoned the country, their functions and legal responsibilities” stated President Maduro. “We won’t abandon any worker… Socialist formula: abandoned firm, firm taken by the working class”.
Vice-President Jorge Arreaza, at an inspection of the factories with the workers assemblies, explained that “this factory was abandoned, a bosses walkout, violating the rights of their workers and collaborating with the economic war by leaving the People without cleaning products… now it has been liberated by its workers”.
