Venezuela - Achievements and Challenges of the Bolivarian Revolution
Since its launch nearly two decades ago, Venezuela’s Bolivarian Revolution has given new hope to millions in Latin America while also instilling fear among the elites in the US that a path was being blazed toward a non-capitalist way forward for that long suffering continent. The US has gone to great lengths to undermine it politically and economically. The media has consistently maligned it. It is almost impossible to find sympathetic or even balanced coverage in the US press.
The Center for Global Justice offers some balance with a talk by Mexican journalist Pedro Gellert on “Achievements and Challenges of the Bolivarian Revolution". Based in Mexico City, Gellert is an activist with the Coordinadora Mexicana de Solidaridad con Venezuela (Mexican Coordinating Committee in Solidarity with Venezuela). His talk will explain what the Bolivarian Revolution is about, why it arose and the challenges it now faces in these difficult times.
