From the moment it was founded, the popular organisations of 23 de Enero have been major players in the political events that shaped Venezuela's history and led the country into a new kind of revolutionary process with Hugo Chávez's coming into power. A journey through the most significant historical events from the early days of the barrio to the present through the people and events that shaped them, highlighting the relationship between typical neighbourhood struggles: for basic services, culture, etc, and the historical organisation of the left in Venezuela and Caracas. In regards to the present moment, this work questions some of the new problems and challenges of the popular mobilisations that are opening up with the revolutionary government.
