For over a month, US and Venezuelan media outlets have been issuing stories about demonstrations and violence in the streets of Venezuela. However, what is the real story of the current situation in Venezuela? Who are the demonstrators and who are the leaders of the opposition to the government now led by President Nicolas Maduro? What is the state of the Bolivarian revolution started by Hugo Chavez? What role is the US playing in Venezuela and throughout the entire region?

This program features Marti Schmidt from the National Lawyers Guild who went to Venezuela last December 2013 to witness the municipal elections and Pete Bohmer, Professor at Evergreen State College, who spent several months in Venezuela in 2009 and 2012 and continues to follow Venezuelan developments.

Sponsored by LELO, National Lawyers Guild, Olympia Movement for Peace and Justice, US Women and Cuba Collaboration, Seattle/Cuba Friendship Committee, Community Alliance for Global Justice, & CISPES.
