Fred Fuentes is back in Caracas after a quick speaking tour of Australia, and already plugged in to the always volatile world of Venezuelan politics. He talks with community radio about the lead up to the regional elections coming up this November, and the prospects of the VSUP (the Venezuelan United Socialist Party) that is the core party of President Hugo Chavez' government coalition. The Chavista project of building grassroots democracy in Venezuela from the bottom up continues, but there are challenges ahead.
