Chavez was considered as the architect of 21st century socialism and kicked off a process of Latin American unification, far from U.S. domination
It’s been three years since Nicolas Maduro went on national TV to announce the tragic death of beloved revolutionary leader, Hugo Chavez.
The size and intensity of the outpouring that followed would show the world, in some measure, the huge impact Chavez had had both in Venezuela and around the world.
Chavez helped bring people out of poverty, to realize they had a role to play in politics. He was the architect of 21st century socialism and kicked off a process of Latin American unification, far from U.S. domination.
After he died, millions travelled to Caracas and lined up for over 15 hours in hot Caribbean heat to say farewell. In other cities, messages covered government buildings, and homages were paid with cultural events, film showings, and nightly rallies.
