It was with a heavy heart that we learnt of the passing of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez last week.
Global Exchange has been taking Reality Tours to Venezuela following a chance meeting with the President in Brazil during a World Social Forum. Since then, over a thousand people have traveled with us and seen the Bolivarian Revolution unfold first-hand.
BBC journalist Sarah Grainger recently joined a Reality Tour and filed this story.
In Venezuela, we meet with human rights activists, rural agricultural workers, labor unions, community activists and journalists, to explore the unprecedented social change that occurred under President Chavez. This year we will continue to watch history unfold.
Consider joining us on a Reality Tour to Venezuela in 2013. For more stories from Venezuela, visit our Reality Tours blog.
Thanks to our Venezuela Reality Tour participants, Sarah Grainger, and the BBC crew!
