Description: In 2002, a U.S.-sponsored coup ousted the democratically elected president of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. In the days that followed, for the first time in Latin American history, the Venezuelan masses mobilized and succeeded in overturning the coup and bringing back their president. Shortly thereafter, the Hands Off Venezuela Campaign was launched to raise awareness and defend the Venezuelan people’s right to determine their own destiny.
London-based Alan Woods, founder of the Hands Off Venezuela Campaign, and chief political editor of the In Defense of Marxism website (www.marxist.com) will discuss these topics and more at this special afternoon event. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
