Hugo Rafael Chávez Frías  (28 July 1954 — 5 March 2013) was the President of Venezuela from 1999 until his death in 2013. He was formerly the leader of the Fifth Republic Movement political party from its foundation in 1997 until 2007, when it merged with several other parties to form the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), which he led until his death.

Following his own political ideology of Bolivarianism and “socialism of the 21st century,” he focused on implementing socialist reforms in the country as a part of a social project known as the Bolivarian Revolution, which has seen the implementation of a new constitution, participatory democratic councils, the nationalization of several key industries, increased government funding of health care and education, and significant reductions in poverty, according to government figures. Under Chavez, Venezuelans’ quality of life improved according to a UN Index, and the poverty rate fell from 48.6 percent in 2002 to 29.5 percent in 2011, according to the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America

Like many around the world, the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement, Black Left Unity and New Afrikan People’s Organization mourn the tragic loss of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez Frias. In an age defined by imperialist globalization, neo-liberal regression, and ecological collapse, revolutionary leadership has been at a premium. President Chavez stood as a defiant, yet visionary tower of revolutionary leadership in this challenging era. His courage, passion, and vision gave expression to the social movements of Venezuela within the vehicle of the Bolivarian national-state, and inspired millions throughout Latin America and the world to re-envision socialism and the liberation of humanity.

In the challenging days ahead President Chavez’s leadership and contributions will sorely be missed. Even now, the enemies of the Bolivarian revolution, both foreign and domestic, are mustering their forces in the effort to overturn the gains of the revolution. Progressive forces throughout the world must remain vigilant over the next days, months, and years to ensure that imperialism does not strangle the Bolivarian revolution and regain a foothold in Venezuela. We must stand at the ready and be prepared to fight against the aggressions of the US government, NATO, and local and regional reactionary forces.
However, despite the challenges being directed at the Bolivarian revolution by the enemies of humanity, we rest assured knowing that the legacy of President Chavez will endure as his fighting spirit was part and parcel of the enduring will of the Venezuelan people and their ongoing quest for social revolution and human development that cannot and will not be extinguished.

The Bolivarian revolution will continue to advance, as the Venezuelan masses will continue to march forward in the memory of President Hugo Chavez.
