ICP: The last elections in May have resulted with a victory for the Maduro government. This can be viewed as a clear indication of the fact that the popular support for the revolutionary process in the country is still strong. Despite the international repression, the aggression of the right wing opposition and the economic difficulties due to the economic crisis, how has it been possible to maintain the popular support?

Carolus Wimmer: The Venezuelan people, its working class, the workers in the cities and in the rural areas, has always been a fighting people since the independence in the beginning of the 19th century, the time when the banner of freedom, social justice and sovereignty was raised. Starting from 1998, we have witnessed a qualitative leap with President Hugo Chávez, during which an anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist consciousness has become widespread among the masses. The hope for profound sociopolitical change augmented and this hope still prevails after the physical disappearance of Chávez, and, along with the multifaceted imperialist aggressions against the Venezuela family, the will to resist has also augmented. We can see the political tactic of this phase of the struggle in the slogan of the PCV: “Unity in defense of the Homeland”, which is shared by all the people.
