On 2 April election campaigning formally began, and on 3 April Nicolas Maduro visited Merida state. Crowds filled the central city bridge, equalling crowd sizes when Hugo Chavez spoke in Merida in September in the lead-up to last year’s elections.

Chavismo on the Streets

"Long live united Latin America"

Weeks after his passing, Chavez remains present on every street corner. Not just his face, but his message is encapsulated by street art peppering Merida’s public places. Murals celebrate freedom and unity, while speaking out against imperialism and exploitation. Merida’s street art are daily reminders of the ongoing revolution.
