Movement We Are Venezuela (MSV) emerged after the transformation of New Revolutionary Road (NCR) is a far-left socialist and anti-imperialist political party in Venezuela founded on May 6, 2008 and refounded on January 29, 2018.

It was established after three national deputies, Luis Tascón, Luis Díaz Salazar and Wilmer Pérez were expelled by the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV). Together with deputy Tomás Sánchez, they decided to form a new political party

Shortly before the formation of NCR, talks were held with deputies Pedro Bastidas and Miguel Rojas of the Ecological Movement of Venezuela to join the new party since they had also recently withdrawn from the PSUV, however they did not accept the proposal.

At the end of May 2008, one of the members of the Luis Díaz party announced that possibly some 60 dissident MPs from the PSUV would join the ranks of NCR. However, it failed to gain representation following the 2010 parliamentary election.
