Born near Barcelona, Catalonia, Jorge has been involved with international solidarity with the Venezuelan revolution from the very beginning. He was a founding member of the international Hands Off Venezuela campaign, has written extensively on the Bolivarian revolution and has traveled around the world speaking in its defense. He has visited Venezuela often, participating in meetings, forums and discussing with revolutionary activists. He has also been actively involved in the movement of occupied factories in Venezuela. Recently he participated in the Havana Book Fair, just as the corporate media frenzy over the change in leadership in Cuba was unleashed.
