We Produce Life: Solidarity Teach-In for Venezuela

February 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

The United States is now actively promoting a coup before our eyes in Venezuela. Using techniques out of the playbook of disaster capitalism, the US is now following the same program it has used in Chile, Haiti, Iran, the Congo and other countries throughout the Global South, to destabilize its economy, breed crisis, extract resources and use military force to undermine democratic processes. The majority of Venezuelans living in Venezuela do not want US intervention and US politicians have made it clear they are interested in Venezuelan oil. In response, people from all over the world are mobilizing in solidarity with Venezuelan self-determination to say #HandsOffVenezuela.

In this teach-in, we will learn more about what led to the current economic crisis in Venezuela and the debilitating role of US sanctions, and hear from people on the ground who have been fighting to build grassroots socialist programs that uphold the dignity and needs of the people.
