Astronism in Venezuela under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution.
The Institution of the Philosophy of Millettism for the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela oversees the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Venezuela is split into twenty-three states, a capital district, and the Federal Dependencies, and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Caracas.
This national branch of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism manages the official representation and depiction of Astronism throughout this territory, including efforts to protect the identity of the philosophy with the intention of further disseminating it throughout the territory.
It is The Institution alone that is granted the status of proprietor to the philosophy in this territory as any other organisations or institutions proclaiming such a role are deemed as unauthorised proprietors and are therefore considered as part of the anti-Institutionist movement.
History of Astronism in Venezuela
Astronism is recognised as a religion in Venezuela as of November 2019 and despite political unrest in the country, the Astronist Institution, in its 2020 Astronist Freedom report, designated the religious liberties for Astronists in the country as apathetic. This means that Astronists are considered as generally free to publicly profess their faith without fear of repression or incident.
Astronists currently number 2,850 in Venezuela according to statistics on the Astronist population retrieved in late 2019.
