Come hear writer and former teleSUR English journalist Richard Gaunt speak on Venezuela.

Tensions in Venezuela are high, and talk of intervention is coming yet again from the US. This is nothing new. The United States has exerted a heavy hand in the affairs of this oil-rich country for decades, and has long seen it as a focal point of its political and economic interests in the region.

Why should people in the US be concerned about our government’s actions in Venezuela? What are the origins of Venezuela’s oil-soaked economy and what have its consequences been? Why is US foreign policy so focused on Venezuela? What is the Bolivarian Revolution? What forms have US intervention historically taken in Venezuela and elsewhere, and how can that history help us to understand the present day?

It’s important for us to know and discuss the US government’s history in Venezuela and its role in the current crisis.

This event is organized by Beyond War and Militarism, a joint committee of the Syracuse Peace Council and the CNY Solidarity Coalition.
