The Socialist Communes, born in the Bolivarian Revolution, could be the key to the permanence of the revolutionary process in Venezuela. As the Bolivarian Revolution, forged by it’s people together with President Chávez, is deeply affected by an economic war lead by the Venezuelan elite and U.S. international economic interests, and the falling costs of oil, this has marked a critical moment for Venezuela and all of Latin America. The Socialist Communes, as territorial organizations, were created to develop a new political and economic system. Based on the active participation, production, administration and decision-making directly from the grassroots,they promise to be a force that has the potential to permanently change Venezuela’s vulnerable oil-dependent economic system, and re-activate a local, regional and national economy under control of the people.
