LET’S CELEBRATE 15 YEARS OF VA W/ $8,000 in 2018
Dear VA reader,
In the last year, we launched our new website, organized our first international solidarity delegation, hired a video-journalist and moved into our new office. We have continued to provide unparalleled daily news coverage and analysis on the greatest issues facing the Venezuelan people and the Bolivarian Process.
Our team has researched, followed and produced multimedia and written content on US sanctions against Venezuela, 2017’s unprecedented opposition violence, and the depths of the economic war. In addition, we’ve covered three elections this year, from the National Constituent Assembly to state governors’ races and the municipal elections – all with live interviews from voters and candidates as well as on the ground analysis about results and their implications.

While grappling with these large-scale issues, we’ve never wavered on our commitment to providing readers with a left analysis informed by Venezuelan grassroots movements and the thousands of organized communities that make-up the Bolivarian Process.
In 2018, Venezuelanalysis will be celebrating our 15th year of independent on the ground coverage in solidarity with Venezuela. Can you help us reach our fundraising goal of $8,000 this year?
Your donations have allowed us to support our multimedia staff, provide travel expenses for special coverage, and fund our new website design. In the coming months, we plan on producing more multimedia coverage with in-depth interviews with communards, feminists, Afro-Venezuelans, Indigenous movements, workers, students and more. We’re also revving up for the 2018 presidential elections and preparing the ground for another delegation (or two) for next year.

As we embark on this new year, your continued support is evermore necessary. If you have already given support, thank you and if not, please consider making a donation to our work today. If you can cannot make a financial contribution, consider organizing a webinar, inviting us to your favorite radio program or hosting a solidarity event with one of our staff members throughout the year.
Every act of solidarity counts and we appreciate your commitment to VA and the Venezuelan popular movement.
Join us in continuing this work and standing in solidarity with Venezuela’s Bolivarian grassroots movements and communities.
The VA Team, December 2017
