John Pilger and Global Women’s Strike respond to British TV attack on Chavez and Bolivarian revolution
To the Channel Four News Team
Channel Four News joins media witch-hunt of disinformation against President Hugo Chávez of Venezuela.
John McDonnell (Hayes and Harlington) (Lab)*: I apologise to the Front-Bench spokesmen, because I am chairing a meeting on the Company Law Reform Bill at 3.30 pm and so cannot be here for the winding-up speeches, although I did not want to miss this debate because I am chair of the "Hands Off Venezuela" campaign.

When Niki Adams, Legal Action for Women London, and I visited Mumia Abu-Jamal in prison a couple of months ago, we knew him only by reputation: an ex-Black Panther who had remained a movement fighter despite being made a political prisoner in 1981 and being on death row since 1983. We couldn't treat it as a personal visit by bringing him any material gifts: food treats, books, videos, photographs, after-shave lotion - we weren't allowed to bring him anything. A small but infuriating restriction.
