Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’ health crisis, which prevented him from attending his own inauguration on Jan. 10, has brought forth a flood of lies and misinformation from right wing opponents to the incredible changes won by Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution under his presidency. The US media propagates the most incredible distortions of the situation in Venezuela, and right-wing Venezuelans in the US have called for demonstrations on Jan. 22 calling for US intervention.
So what are the facts and what are the lies concerning Venezuela? AfGJ Venezuela experts James Jordan and Chuck Kaufman will lead off a discussion on Jan. 25. Bring your own questions and opinions and let’s have a lively two hour discussion of the Venezuelan reality, what advances in Venezuela would benefit us in the US, and what we can do to support the Venezuelan people and oppose US.
