The Federation Anthem with its “Oligarcas Temblad” and the presentation of the Dance of Tura, the original ceremony of the Ayamán and Jira Jaras communities to thank Mother Earth for her kindness, began a popular assembly in Maparari, Falcón state, where Las Comunas exchanged experiences: El Maizal, El Arañero de Sabaneta, Simón Bolívar, Luchadores de mi Patria, 20 de Febrero, Batalla de Churuguara, among others; with the objective of creating a national communal alliance that will allow us to elevate the productive and organizational capacities of the communal management model.
The analysis made by the community members in this population of the Federation municipality, reveals strong adversities that affect peasants in their efforts to produce food. The roads are in very bad state of repair, suitable only for rustic vehicles, there is no institutional support to guarantee tools, seeds, fertilizer, among other necessary supplies for agricultural work. Additionally, there have been some of the strongest droughts in recent years, without any dam or alternative that would allow even the cultivation for self-consumption.
Given these conditions, there was a unanimous feeling that the communal management model should be used as a method to overcome the crisis. “This is definitely a class struggle, we have to study history and realize that the rich have never helped the poor,” said Jesús Guanipa of La Comuna Batalla de Churuguara in his address.
For his part, Angel Prado of the Socialist Commune of El Maizal, reflected that this reality needs “a Chavista, productive and honorable national communal movement” in order to respond to the challenges facing the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela today. “We come here to present a management model that has served us, but we invite you to do more than we have achieved, each Commune must have at least one means of production, we must be free and autonomous,” said Constituent Prado.
Several agreements closed the session, among them the possibility of developing joint formation processes, in order to provide the theoretical and practical tools that serve the communal movement to interpret and transform reality in an effort to build a more just society, a socialist society.
