Galloway champions the Bolivarian Revolution

'These orchestrated attacks on Chávez are a travesty' declares Galloway in today's Guardian, hammering the British neo-cons around Blair who claim to support 'democratic Socialism' in theory but hate the sight of it in practice.

'The atmosphere in Caracas is fervid. The vast shanty towns draping the hillside around the cosmopolitan centre bustle with workers' cooperatives, trade union meetings, marches and debates. The $18bn fund for social welfare set up by Chávez is already bearing fruit. Education, food distribution and primary healthcare programmes now cover the majority for the first time. Queues form outside medical centres filled with thousands of Cuban doctors dispensing care to a population whose health was of no value to those who sat atop Venezuela's immense wealth in the past.'
