The following continues my translation of the PSUV's 'Libro Rojo':
Article 10: Militants’ commitment to practical and theoretical study
Translated by Owen Richards
The party declares socialist education and self-education to be of fundamental importance and as such will establish a political and ideological System of Education, which is to be one of the national bodies within the functional structure and organisational method, according to the party’s principle of territorial and sectoral organisation. As such, it will encourage the education of all party militants in its Doctrine, Statutes, Principles, Program and Official Documents. Prioritising the deep study of Bolivarianism, our own history, universal critical thought and Marxism as the basis for the dialectical analysis of human experience, all of which, combined with volunteer work, shall guarantee the theoretical and practical education of each and every militant.
