The Service Employees International Union's New York City office hosted a celebration of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Friday.

The "celebration and procession for the life of our comrade Hugo Chávez," organized by the Bolivarian Circle of New York, began at the SEIU 1199 auditorium and ended at the statue of Simon Bolivar in Central Park.

"Join us and spread the word, show your solidarity and support in memory of President Hugo Chavez and the Bolivarian Revolution," the Facebook invitation read. "Those who die for life can not be called dead."

The invite called the Venezuelan president, who died of cancer on Tuesday, an "extraordinary human and revolutionary."

"Your energy, love and example will not be forgotten. The revolution will continue until there is liberation for all," it said. "QUE VIVA CHAVEZ!!"
