The Bolivarian Revolution, Venezuela’s Fight Against US Imperialism

VA teams up with Groundings in this two part series on the Bolivarian Revolution's current fight against US imperialism. 

In collaboration with Groundings, this is part one of a two-part special on current events in Venezuela, as well as the historical developments which have led to the country being the target of an international imperialist campaign, conducted by the U.S., to remove the popularly elected President Maduro and install a Western puppet via a coup. We remove the imperialist propaganda dominating the news and interview four different people whose analyses are key to understanding Venezuela, the Bolivarian Revolution, U.S. imperialism, grassroots activism, sanctions, race, gender and agriculture in the country, and so much more.

For part one, you will hear VA’s Jeanette Charles  who gives a general overview of what is occurring in Venezuela: Western governments, lead by the U.S., supporting a coup attempt by an unelected representative of an elite opposition party. Then we speak with human rights lawyer and author Dan Kovalik, who was an official observer of Venezuela’s elections, who discusses the important process of elections and the trend of U.S. election meddling across the world.
