In the past two weeks ordinary citizens from across Venezuela have been participating in thousands of public assemblies called Cities of Debates, in which community members submit and debate proposals that will form the basis of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez's Socialist Plan for his new six-year term. The Cities of Debates are being held on a daily basis in most of Venezuela's public spaces.In just two weeks the government has collected well over 5,000 proposals from community members. They encompass everything from increased funding to health care and education to the construction of new public parks.
