Hugo Chavez commemoration events by Venezuelan embassy in Belarus

04.02.2014 19:56

MINSK, 4 February (BelTA) – A series of events will be held in Minsk from 4 February through 5 March by the Embassy of Venezuela in Belarus to commemorate former Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez, representatives of the Embassy told BelTA.

The international action will be staged in many countries across the globe upon the initiative of the Venezuelan government as a token of respect for the former president. For a month Belarusian diplomatic missions, public organizations and movements in various parts of the world will stage commemorative events that will end on 5 March — the day of the anniversary of Hugo Chavez’ demise.

The Embassy of Belarus in Venezuela has prepared a large range of events to commemorate the great friend of the Belarusian nation. In particular, lectures will be held in various universities. Drawing contests will be held among children and the youth. Other events will be arranged, too. An exhibition featuring the most prominent photos that highlight Hugo Chavez’ visits to Belarus will be opened in the National Library of Belarus.

A forum will be held in Minsk to discuss Hugo Chavez as a symbol of revolution in Latin America and beyond. It is scheduled for 5 March and is supposed to be the crowning event of the entire commemorative campaign. The forum is expected to gather representatives of government agencies of Belarus and Venezuela.

The Embassy explained why the series of events begins on 4 February. “4 February 2014 marks the 22nd anniversary of the military and civilian uprising that began a new era in Venezuela. The political life in Venezuela and in all countries of Latin America was divided by the event. Hugo Chavez became prominent as an experienced military officer, who spoke in favor of people’s government, who placed interests of the people first. It was the beginning of a new stage of changes that determined the progress of the Bolivarian revolution. This revolution changed the course of history. It went beyond borders of Venezuela and reached countries of Latin America,” BelTA has been told.
